Even more road works ahead

Road works are scheduled to take place at various places in and around the village during the period 16 – 30 July. In particular, surface dressing will affect users of traffic control Kirby Road, Surlingham Road and Framingham Lane. Although this work may not involve road closures it is likely that there will be delays to traffic while these works are in progress.

Remember that Kirby Road will also be closed at Bixley overnight on 22 July when diversions will be signposted.

Please drive with extra care when passing work in progress and also when following diversion routes, and please drive slowly over the newly laid top dressing.

Pregnant smokers encouraged to quit

Women who smoke during pregnancy are being urged to quit to help reduce the risk of seriously affecting the health of their baby. Norfolk County Council Public Health has produced an animated video to highlight the dangers of smoking during pregnancy and the support available to help smokers quit.

Smoking in pregnancy is harmful for both the mother and the unborn child. Carbon monoxide enters the mother’s blood, together with around 4,000 other cigarette chemicals, and limits the oxygen that reaches the baby. It results in an increased risk of the baby being born prematurely, being born too small or even dying before birth.

Having a baby is a great reason to give up smoking. If you’re pregnant and struggling to quit smoking, talk to your midwife or contact Smokefree Norfolk, Norfolk’s specialist stop-smoking service. Advisors will work with you to find what works best for you; offering everything from intensive support, group sessions, one-to-one appointments, and drop-in sessions, all delivered in locations around the county.

For help and support with quitting visit the Smokefree Norfolk website or call 0800 0854113.
