The following e-mail was received from Pentaco this morning:

You are undoubtedly aware that the works along Church Road are progressing apace and there is a reasonably increase in vehicle movements in and around site. This is unfortunately a consequence of the restricted area for site parking and the external works now required to complete the project. To mitigate this problem and prevent vehicles parking on the surrounding highway, we have made an informal agreement with the landowner to form an area of parking on the field behind, with access off Hethel Road.

We have discussed with the planners at South Norfolk and they have agreed to this temporary arrangement with immediate effect for a period of approx 6 weeks.

We trust you will agree this is of benefit to all parties and will hopefully allow the development to be concluded with minimal disruption to the residents of your parish; however if you wish to discuss any of the above, please do not hesitate to call or visit Dean on site.

Many thanks for your continued co-operation.

Following a report about the trees on Parish land, the Council commissioned Paul Reeder to undertake some trimming, felling, cutting out and tidying up of the trees around the Village Hall, at the back of the “Reading Room” and beside the children’s play area on the playing field. The first two are well underway as I write this. The latter is planned for next Wednesday, 22nd February 2017.

If you or your family are in the playing field on Wednesday, take care.


Last year we had a successful Litter Pick in the village and lots of fun doing it. Besides £20 for registering our Litter Pick, we won £200 in the South Norfolk Council draw for club funds. This year the Litter Pick will be on 30th April. Further information will be posted on this site or on the village noticeboards. SNC information is here.

Do contact us on info@wreningham.org if you want to help organising it, take part, or have suggestions to improve on last year.

A fourth act of vandalism to property belonging to the developers on Church Road has been reported.

Besides being pointless, this just raises the level of insecurity along Church Road, with the builders and in Wreningham as a whole. Where a person has a grievance about some aspect of their life then they should address it in a manner which does not cause concern to others about their property or themselves.

From March the houses will start becoming available for occupation by people new to the village, or indeed some villagers who are thinking to move house within the village. Petty vandalism is not the way to present Wreningham or its residents.

As far as we are aware, no other incident has been reported in Wreningham. If you do see anything untoward or are a victim of vandalism you should inform the Police as soon as you can.
