More thoughts about parking in Reepham

I refer to your article in Reepham Life. Car parking is a problem in Reepham. Perhaps the developer of the land off Dereham Road could be persuaded to provide a small car park near the Doctors Surgery - this would have the dual purpose of an overspill park for the Doctors (which car park is often full and people park where they can on Smugglers Lane) and a public park only a few steps from the town centre.

Quartet (12A) 13th April Bawdeswell Village Cinema

Our next film in the Village Hall is QUARTET 13th April 7:00 for 7:30 start.
A really great British comedy cast, (Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins and Michael Gambon) this is the kind of comedy that only the British can do. This is a first major Director role for Dustin Hoffman.
Based in a home for the mature, it has great fun with the problems of getting on in years interlinked with ‘Oh God, not you’ statements of ‘friends’ meeting again after many years.

Highways robbery

How many Reepham residents have had the unfair expense of having to buy new wheels and tyres this winter because of Norfolk County Council having failed to maintain the highways and repair the potholes on our local roads?
I am aware of at least FIVE instances where cars have suffered serious damage in potholes on the Reepham to Norwich roads this winter.
Motor cyclists could have received serious injuries, or worse if they had hit one of these potholes or struck by a car swerving to avoid them.
