    to all our readersfrom the editorial team of Hazel, Jennie, Linda, Polly, Phil and Adrian

    A belated thank you to those people who took part in our online survey a few months ago. If you

    remember we were trying to find out how many people would be happy to read their copy of the

    newsletter online, rather than receiving a paper copy. As we secured continued funding for the

    newsletter we dont need to take it any further for the moment but it is undoubtedly something we

    will consider in the future.

    Part of the survey had asked people for ways in which we could improve the newsletter and it would

    be interesting to hear other peoples views. If you have any ideas on how we can improve the

    Newsletter please let us know, either by e mail ([email protected] ), telephone (734488) orby delivering to 12 Old Norwich Road. Please take a few moments to let us know what you think.

    Marsham Parish Council News

    The last meeting of the Parish Council took place on Monday 9thNovember, where it was revealed

    that the Summer Show had raised 6000 to be given to various charities such as the East Anglian Air

    Ambulance, Holding Hands with Courageous Children, Marsham Parish Church, and Buxton Scouts

    amongst others. It was recognised by the Parish Council and others present that this was a fantastic


    Maintenance around the village had been completed such as trees trimmed on the A140 to allow

    easier exit from Fengate, reflective posts have been put into the grass triangle at the top of the High

    Street and rubbish had been cleared from various places around the village where it had been

    dumped. It was reported that there had been increase around the Village of dog fouling. Parishionerswere asked to consider others in the Village and to make sure that dog mess was cleared and put in

    the appropriate bins. The Council do have the power to prosecute if the offenders are caught. Thanks

    to everyone for their cooperation.

    The County Councillor reported that there had been an extraordinary Council meeting to agree the

    funding for the Northern Distributor Route, and the budget savings proposals had been released for

    public consultation. Parishioners were encouraged to express their views on the proposals by using

    Upwards for Marsham

    Part of looking up in Marsham has - for hundreds of years -

    been symbolically expressed and helped by Marsham`s

    amazing church tower - significant even by Norfolkstandards. The tower now needs our help. And so

    "Upwards for Marsham" is our name for the cooperation of

    the church, school and village to help strengthen both local

    spirits and ancient structures, very much including the

    church tower which badly needs attention.

    The work to repair the tower and porch will cost in the

    region of 320,000. We have just applied for a Heritage

    Lottery Grant which could bring up to 250,000. As part of

    the work we also hope to install a water supply to the

    Church. At the moment water has to be carried to the Church in lots of containers- not aneasy task for the Church Wardens. Once this is installed we can then explore the possibility

    of a permanent disabled toilet in the Church-currently we only have a portable toilet - and

    also installing a new kitchen so that the Church can be become a venue for many more

    community events.

    In due course we will be asking people about what sort of fundraising may help - but

    meanwhile we are looking at the possibility of doing more together in enjoying our church

    for wider village events - such as possible...
