We just been informed that 22 September 2021 is “World Car Free Day” – more information here. A handy excuse for us is that South Norfolk Council (SNC) has been rather low-key about the event.

For Wreningham residents, many of whom rely on their car for their daily business, it could be a struggle to do more than acknowledge the date in the calendar. At such a late stage the Parish Council is unable to tackle the matter. But, if you have thoughts on what might be done to reduce dependency on cars, please contact your SNC councillors – see their contact details here.

If you venture into Norwich on Sunday 19th, it is possible that a number of streets will be closed to traffic, as Car Free events happen. Norwich City Council has encouraged people to apply for road closures and do something in a car-less manner with their streets. See their document here:


South Norfolk has a policy on the naming of roads, properties, etc. especially when new developments are considered. This policy can be seen here.

The Parish Council has been asked to consider creating a list of such names which would be relevant to Wreningham. Do you have any suggestions which we may retain ready for when we are asked to suggest or consider one? Please read the policy to get a feel for what is acceptable.

Send your suggestion to the Clerk – clerk.wpc@gmail.com

Just a warning to watch out for tick bites when in your garden or when you go for your walk around the fields and woods in the area. We do know of at least one case of Lyme’s Disease in the village – caught early and being treated.

Public Health England have provided some information in poster format – here.
