Wreningham Parish Council Chair

NCC are consulting on the reduction to the speed limit on B1113, Norwich Road through Wreningham, as in this plan: the existing speed limit is 50mph and the new limit is 40mph. The Parish Council, with others, has been pressing for a speed reduction for many years.

The Parish Council will be requesting that the new limit should instead commence at/near the Wreningham village sign near the Bird in Hand. Pleased send comments (for or against) by 12th December 2019 to the NCC contact:

For those needing to travel between Wreningham and Stansted Airport an existing option is about to become a lot more viable.  From the 15th December, many of the Norwich to Cambridge train services are being extended to Stansted Airport. See here and here.

The journey time between Wymondham Station and Stansted will be approximately 1¾ hours.  That will take you right alongside the terminal building.  If you’d been planning to drive, park in the airport’s Long Term of Mid Stay car parks, taking the bus link to the terminal, you’ll find the overall journey time between Wymondham and the inside of the airport terminal to be almost the same by train.

Of course, life isn’t perfect.  The through trains between Norwich and Stansted won’t be operating in the early mornings or in the evenings (that will require a change) but, otherwise, it’s a very regular service.  You can check the train times here, (put in dates after 15th December to see the new services and times).

Of course, with the introduction of the new Greater Anglia fleet – already operating on the route to Cambridge, the train is a great improvement, too.

Thanks to David Kirk for finding this for us.



We have received notification that the bus services in Norfolk will have significant changes. The note is attached here – those which mention Mulbarton are in green lettering, whereas mention of Wreningham is in one entry in blue ink.

It is not clear whether these are temporary arrangements or more permanent. Please contact the names given in the note if you need more information.


The Norfolk Library Service is inviting everyone to write a poem about the Mobile Library, in any capacity – a fantasy journey, a memory of the library, a recent visit to the library – the choice is the authors. Closing date is 21st December.

Poems can be given to drivers or emailed to central.mobiles.lib@norfolk.gov.uk

The Mobile Library Team will pick their favourites and the authors will have the chance to be filmed, if suitable, reading their poems on the Mobile Library for a Digital Anthology which will be shown on our internal screens in the New Year. We have 2 guest judges: Hayley Scott, author of Jar Baby and the Teacup series, and Elly Griffiths, author of the Ruth Galloway series, who will be around when we film for the Digital Anthology to meet the winners.

John & Hughie – just about finished.
