A140 Long Stratton: Hempnall Crossroads Junction Improvement Traffic Management Information

The above scheme to replace the existing crossroads junction with a roundabout will start on 20 May 2019, with preliminary work taking place from 7 May. The scheme will help to unlock economic growth and development in the area, improve road safety at a junction with a history of accidents and improve access from side roads onto the A140.

The roundabout will be built to the west of the existing crossroads in order to keep disruption to a minimum. Traffic management arrangements are as follows:

7 May – 20 May: mandatory 30mph speed limit and lane closure on A140 between
8pm – 6am
20 May – 1 November: mandatory 30mph speed limit on A140 24 hours a day

Further details of other necessary traffic management will be publicised as the scheme progresses.

For Further Information
Adam Fairhurst, Resident Engineer, 0344 800 8020.
The scheme is expected to cost £4.57m, with £3.05m funding from the Department for Transport and £650,000 from New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership’s Growth Deal with central Government. The remainder will come from the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and Norfolk County Council.

Up-to-date information about the scheme is available on the County Council website atwww.norfolk.gov.uk/hempnallcrossroads

Latest News From St Mary’s

I would like to thank all those of you who came to the public meeting on 20 March to discuss the future of St Mary’s church.  It was a good meeting and we received a lot of sympathy and understanding regarding our decision to close the church.

However, there has been a lot of misunderstanding about when this will happen.  We remain open for the present.  As you will see from the above list of services, we are continuing as we are for the immediate future.  Any decision to close the church has to be approved by our diocesan bishop, and as many of you will know Bishop Graham has recently retired.  No decision will be made until a new bishop is in place, which may well not be until the autumn, and even then it will probably be several more months before any final decision is taken.

In the meantime the church stays open, so do drop in at any time to enjoy a beautiful place of quiet and peacefulness

Wortwell Bake Off

A lovely afternoon was had by all who attended the Wortwell Bake Off event on Sunday 14 April.  Visitors enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea and took part in an Easter egg hunt. All three prizes for the adult competition went to Wortwell residents with 1st prize going to Kim Baxter. The prizes for the Easter egg hunt and the children’s baking competition were won by children from outside the village.

Well done to The CORE events team who made a superb effort of organising the event.

Guide Dog in training

Dear Wortwell Mardlers,

I am dictating my letter to my human, Richard. I wanted to say hello to everyone, as I moved into the village in mid-January.

I am a black Labrador/ retriever cross puppy. I’m nearly eight months old. You might recognise me, as I wear a blue jacket when I take my human for a walk or training. I wear my jacket, as I am training to be a guide dog. I am learning to be a well-behaved dog, use trains and buses, go shopping and even go to restaurants, but I never have dinner there, as I have my own special food at home. I hope to qualify when I’m two years old, but I’ll have to go to a big school in London before that.

I like people to say “hello”, but my human likes me to sit first, then I can enjoy a tickle. I love going for walks and ‘free-runs’. I sometimes allow my human to take me to The Bell,
I enjoy the biscuits, and he likes the brown water!

As far as I know, I’m the only Guide Dog puppy living in East Anglia, so please say “hello” and help me to learn or come for a ‘free run’ together.

Woofs to all
Idris (and human, Richard)
