Public Virtual Parish Council meeting….the Parish Council meeting was again held as a public virtual (on-line) meeting. Members of the public were able to join the virtual meeting, by sending a request for an invitation to the Parish Council prior to the meeting.
Thurgarton Emergency Plan (TEP)….the revised COVID-safe Thurgarton Road Closure Plan and new guidance for flood wardens and road signage wardens is now in operation. New gloves for the road signage wardens have been sourced free of charge from NCC.
TAAC (Thurgarton Action against Coronavirus)….the village community support initiative started by the Parish Council, the TCA and the WI is now gradually being wound down as the need diminishes. Huge thanks and appreciation are again sent to all TAAC Volunteers who have worked to provide households in the village with shopping, prescriptions and postal services. Please be aware that the TAAC service is being ‘mothballed’ and will return, if required, in the future.
Community Speed Watch (CSW)….has been in operation from 1st July and has recorded the details of 246 vehicles speeding through the village up to 21st July. Many thanks are sent to the CSW Volunteers for their efforts in trying to keep the Parishioners safe from speeding motorists.
