Football safety first
We have installed 2 new sets of goalposts on two
of our 3 football pitches in the Watton Road Recreation Ground. Like those
on the A1 pitch they now conform to current safety regulations and were part
funded by the football foundation.

for the youth of our village. Depending on the outcome I will report further

Plastics - beware!
A large, state of the art, recycling container has been deposited on a car
parking space at the south end of the St Martin`s Road car park. This
container is meant for any type of plastic container that can be construed
to hold liquid. Not plastic food trays. There should be notices on
the container to this effect but after 3 weeks they have still not appeared,
so much that is currently in there cannot be recycled. Not a good start for
the NHDC recycling initiative.
