Congratulations George!

Congratulations to George Hardiment as she celebrates her 25th Anniversary of cleaning Reepham Public Toilets!!

George started working for Broadland District Council, cleaning the toilets on the 18th October 1992 and when responsibility for managing the toilets was passed to the Town Council, George came along too!

The Town Council would like to say a huge THANK YOU to George for all her hard work and enthusiasm, often going above and beyond the call of nature, sorry I mean duty! George is NOT retiring, so the Town Council and all the users of the public toilets are looking forward to another 25 years of excellent service!!

Stimpson’s Piece Dog Restrictions

At the Trustee of Stimpson’s Piece meeting held on the 9th March 2016, the Trustees unanimously agreed that restrictions for dogs on Stimpson’s Piece (initially approved in 2008) should be reintroduced in light of the increasing amount of dog’s mess found on the field.

Whilst the Trustees recognise that the reintroduction of these restrictions may impact on the pleasure and enjoyment of dog walkers at Stimpson’s Piece, these measures are necessary to ensure the health and safety of other users of the field.

Signage has been installed to inform members of the public.

The restriction is as follows
