Broadland District and South Norfolk Councils have renewed the existing Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) made under section 59 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, which cover dog fouling across both district areas.

View the Broadland District and South Norfolk Council PSPO documents.

Each PSPO makes it an offence for a person in control of a dog not to clear up the dog mess immediately, on any land that is open to the air and to which the public is entitled or permitted to have access (with or without payment).

In South Norfolk, the PSPO also restricts the presence of dogs in play areas, making it an offence for you to take your dog into any enclosed play area or children’s playground.

Offenders in Broadland and South Norfolk are subject to a fixed penalty notice of £100, reduced to £80 if paid within 10 days, or if taken to court, a fine up to £1,000.

In order for an offence to be investigated, we will need to know the address of the owner and as much information as possible including a description of both the dog(s) and the owner.

If you see someone allowing their dog to foul and not clear it up, and if you know the owner’s details you can report this using the links below (please do not submit photographs of the waste itself).

The Parish Council arranged free training on the use of the AED now installed on the Village Hall wall.

We know that many villagers have attended such training at work but now we have a further dozen with potentially life saving knowledge. All agreed that they had learnt a lot from their session.

Some villagers did ask how AED awareness training could take two hours.

Well, the trainer did covered a lot of ground: recognising a heart attack as opposed to cardiac arrest; applying CPR; the use of the AED; and, placing the patient in the recovery position. With questions and discussion our session took just over two hours – time well spent.

Anglia Water, from 1st October 2016, have assumed responsibility for Private Pumping Stations (PPSs) – you have to look closely but they are referring to sewage/waste water systems. They are running a campaign to find the unregistered PPSs. So if you have one and want to save yourself the cost of maintaining it, contact Anglia Water to register it.

More information here. If you have any questions about this , contact Anglia Water at

We are arranging training, which is open to all parishioners, in the use of our defibrillator now fixed to the Village Hall wall. We have two dates in mind, both at the Village Hall:

  • Thursday 15th June from 6.30pm.
  • 17th June from 10 am.

Each session will last for 2 hours and is guided by an experienced trainer from the Community Heartbeat Trust.

To help us plan each session, please do let the Clerk know ( or 01508 570700) that you will attend one of the sessions. We will provide more information as it becomes available.

Nicola Gregory, Public Health Officer, NCC, asked if we could give some publicity for this event. It is aiming to reach out to members of the community across Norfolk who are not already aware of some of the dementia friendly developments taking place within communities, or part of existing support / dementia networks.

See Eventbrite for further information and for free registration.
