Everybody needs a bit of extra support from time to time and South Norfolk Help Hub makes sure people get that help as soon as possible, if they begin to experience difficulties.
Getting help early can stop problems from getting worse. It might be only a small problem, like a broken washing machine or feeling a little isolated, but a small problem can quickly grow and lead to more worries.
The Help Hub is a partnership between organisations that support people in South Norfolk. It offers practical support, advice and guidance to get you back on track. The Help Hub bulletin is really helpful because it tells you what’s happening and what’s available in South Norfolk and surrounding areas. It’s produced every two weeks and features a wide variety of information for residents and professionals, including:

Following the retirement of Brian Ansell, Bramerton parish council has appointed Yvonne Wonnacott as the new parish clerk. At the end of a busy parish council meeting friends and relations gathered in the village hall to mark Brian’s departure with a small reception and presentation. In his farewell speech councillor Roger Smith thanked Brian for his long years of service which were in the true spirit of public service. He went on to say that councillors may come and go, either through their own volition or as a result of elections, but Brian had stayed the course!
Yvonne Wonnacott takes over the post on 1 January 2019. If you need to contact her about parish matters email firstname.lastname@example.org .
December 1st and another fantastic coffee morning organised by Jane and Angie and their band of helpers. Great choice of freshly brewed coffee, tea or seasonal mulled wine and tables groaning with a wonderful selection of superb home-made cakes. The village hall was packed and it was good to see so many new faces as well as established residents enjoying the chance to meet up with one another and put the world to rights. Many thanks to all involved for organising this splendid community gathering. We’ll let you know when the next event is being held as soon as a date is fixed.
There are seven councillors on Bramerton parish council and in May next year their four year term of office comes to an end. While some may choose to stand for re-election others are likely to stand down. Whatever they choose to do there is an opportunity for anyone who is a resident of the village or who lives close by to put themselves forward as a candidate. This is a great opportuity for you to have a say in village matters and to give something back to the local community.
There will be a briefing session for anyone who decides to stand for election. This will be held on 11 February 2019 at 6.30pm in the Council Chamber at South Norfolk Council Offices, Cygnet Court, Long Stratton. To book a space please email email@example.com by 30 January 2019, confirming in what capacity you will be standing either as a District and/ or Parish candidate at the elections in May 2019.
