25 September Update

As promised, here is the name and contact details for the Anglian Water project manager:

Mick Renshaw

23 August – Update

From next week Anglian Water will commence their 6 month project to upgrade the water supply within Wreningham. See previous posts.

There are two preparatory tasks for them to address:

  1. To install a temporary pipe in Mill Lane to maintain the water supply during the project.

  2. To establish the project / site base behind the pumping station on Mill Lane.

1. Mill Lane pipe.

This will connect one side of the village supply to another during the whole of the 6 month project. Once the project is complete then the pipe will be removed. The objective is to provide an alternative supply line and thereby ensure the water supply has as few supply suspensions as possible during the next six months.

Next week the pipe will be laid to connect the “Wash Out” point on the Village Hall plot (in the corner nearest the school) and the Fire Hydrant near 41 Mill Lane.

The 6” diameter pipe will be laid around the extreme edge of the hall grounds, exiting through the hedge onto Mill Lane verge. It will continue along the South side verge of Mill Lane to near 41 Mill Lane. The pipe will cross several field gateways and one residential driveway. In those cases the pipe will be placed in a shallow trench to ensure the access remains unobstructed.

2. Project / site base.

The area behind the pumping station on Mill Lane will be used to hold construction materials, site offices, parking for equipment and vehicles, etc. This will mean that Anglian Water traffic will be using Mill Lane throughout the project. Users of Mill Lane need to consider this as well as the planned road closures already posted.

It is hoped to post in the near future, the name and contact details of the Anglian Water site manager should residents need to discuss issues.

29th July

Last month we warned of the intention by Anglian Water to undertake significant roadworks on all the roads within the Wreningham & Top Row. They have just contacted the Parish Council to confirm that they are replacing the cast iron water pipes across the village. See their letter – Water Mains Replacement

They are arranging for a community drop-in on 15th August from 2 pm to 8 pm in the Village Hall. They invite you to come along and find out more about what is planned and how it will affect you.

 

 


Circus Ferrel is returning to Wreningham playing field. It was last here in May 2015 for 2 or 3 days. So expect to see them on the playing field setting up either on Sunday 17th September or early the following morning. Wednesday evening they be gone – just like that! Access to the play equipment will be maintained.

The school children will have several workshops in the tent with two shows for them and their family and friends: one Tuesday and another on Wednesday. Additional information will be posted when received.

The wifi service is now available for the community to use within, or in the vicinity of, the Hall.

There are 6 wireless networks available – all commencing with the letters “WAP” – 3 operating at 2.4GHz and another 3 at 5GHz. We have measured the download speed at nearly 80Mbps and upload at 20Mbps.

Select the network and log in through the Wreningham Community Hub homepage. Password access is currently not required, but that may change. When you use the service please be aware of the Terms & Conditions.



Circus Ferrel came to the Wreningham playing field and opened for two nights in early May. Martin, from the circus, had attended a Parish Council meeting to ask to use the playing field. He explained that they work with schools teaching circus skills and that they also open to the public. The circus team would be in Wreningham School and working with the pupils there.

Rob Jones, Headmaster at Wreningham school, later said “We had Circus Ferrel for 3 days in school – the children did circus skills such as juggling, tight rope walking and plate spinning!”

All the reports are that the event was a success and enjoyed by many people.

Martin said “We too couldn’t believe the turn out on Wednesday! Tuesday was quieter but still a lively show with a wonderful mix of local (and not so local) folk. Each week is so different on the road but Wreningham was one of the stays we shall have happy memories of for a long time to come and it’s lovely to have good crowds at the start of the season – the winter break is long and it’s so expensive to get the show out on the road.”

We asked if he had some photos of the two days but Martin and his team worked so hard that “…there’s rarely time to remember to take any!”. However, the school did remember to take along a camera and here are pictures of the students enjoying themselves.

​The Parish Council have been advised about new work by the Better Broadband ​for Norfolk (BBfN) Project. A new communications cabinet (Fundenhall PCP 8) is to be installed on the verge outside Wreningham VC School in the near future to serve residents and businesses in the immediate surrounding area.

​The​ survey pack ​provides some additional information about the installation of this cabinet (note that photograph 1 on page 3 shows the new cabinet footprint superimposed in green near the hedge).

The BBfN site has the following about FUNDENHALL – “BBfN is bringing better broadband to parts of Fundenhall – Services should become available from ISPs by the end of September 2014 and to parts of Wreningham by the end of March 2015 Work continues to move some customers from an existing cabinet to a new cabinet to achieve better speeds in Fundenhall.
***Latest news *** Further parts of Fundenhall will receive access to better broadband by end of June 2015.

This cabinet is obviously part of the necessary infratructure but when it will go live for the benefit of Wreningham residents remains to be seen!
