The Bircham Centre building was donated in trust by Samuel Bircham in 1919 shortly after the end of the First World War. During the war, the main building was used as a Red Cross Hospital.
The building is unique, with parts dating back to the 16th century. It is held in trust by the people of Reepham for the people of Reepham and was donated “for use as a reading room and community meeting place”.

Congestion around church on Saturday 24 September

On Saturday 24 September there will be a craft fair at St Michaels from 10 am – 4 pm and a party of bellringers will be ringing the bells of St Michael's from 3-4 pm.
On the same day there will also be a wedding at St Mary's at  3 pm, which will include the use of horse-drawn transport that may come via Church Street.
Clearly with these three events coinciding there is potential for traffic congestion in Church Hill, Market Place (east) and Church Street. Drivers may wish to avoid this area, otherwise to proceed with great caution and allow for delay.

Town Council meeting cancelled

The next meeting of Reepham Town Council, which was scheduled for Wednesday 14 September, has been cancelled owing to a lack of Councillors able to attend.

This is the second time this has happened in recent months and the result of having only half of the Councillors needed, according to town clerk Jo Boxall – there are six Councillors currently serving on the Council out of a possible 12.
