BUDGET and PRECEPT

The meeting finalised the parish council budget for 2021/22 and decided not to increase the 2021 Precept, the sum that will be requested from South Norfolk Council to enable the council to discharge its various duties.

Village history book

The village history book has been selling well, and our thanks go to Kirby Cane Post Office & Stores for stocking them. 

Our centenarian, Mr Stanley “Bill” Williams

Many residents will know that on 4th January 2021, long-standing village resident Stanley “Bill” Williams celebrated his 100th birthday, and he asked me to send his very grateful thanks to all those who sent cards to mark this momentous day. 

Grants to improve energy efficiency

One of the items raised by District Councillor Brendon Bernard at the January meeting was the availability of grant funding before the end of the financial year on 31 March 2021 for households to improve energy efficiency and thereby cut heating bills and make houses warmer.  Eligible properties will have an EPC rating of E, F or G rated and be occupied by people with a total household income of £30,000 or less.  There is a package of measures available through the district council which aims to achieve a post works EPC rating of C or above for each home.  For more information go to www.norfolkwarmhomes.org.uk, or call 01603 430103.
