Some people reported seeing Anglian Water employees surveying the roads in and around Wreningham. A significant upgrade to the mains water system is being planned.

Community Action Norfolk is working with Norfolk County Council and Insight Track on the Total Transport project. The initial pilot area includes the Breckland and South Norfolk districts, so if you live, work, or travel around these areas, we’re particularly interested in hearing from you.

As part of this project, this piece of research is being carried out to find out about your travel needs and how you access travel information.  Your feedback will be analysed and reported to Norfolk County Council in early August and will guide the County Council in designing a future travel information portal.

This survey will take around 10-15 minutes to complete.  Your views and opinions are greatly valued and will enable us to best meet your needs into the future. Please click here to take part.  The deadline for the survey is 10th July.

If you are a carer you are welcome to complete this survey on behalf of the person you care for.

On Sunday 17th April, a very bright and sunny day, 20 or so volunteers gathered at the village hall for the announced Village Litter Pick and to collect their pickers, Hi-Viz jackets, and sundry large bin bags. The Social Club had made the arrangements and South Norfolk provided the equipment.

Men, women and children dispersed along the four main roads of Wreningham to retrieve the litter dropped along the roadsides. An hour or so later, when all had returned, there were 11 bags of landfill and 10 bags of recyclables. South Norfolk collected them on Monday. Three fly-tipping locations were identified and reported for South Norfolk to deal with.The Social Club prepared a splendid spread of  filled rolls in the Margaret Preston Room. Everyone enjoyed the stroll around the village and supported the idea of coming back next year for Village Litter Pick 2017.

Thanks to everyone who helped put this event together and especial thanks to the volunteers giving up a small part of their weekend for the village.
