Rogue traders in Reepham

Norfolk Police have received a report of an elderly resident in Reepham agreeing to pay for hedge trimming and then asked for £200 to clear away the clippings. The resident refused to pay this but agreed for a copper water tank to be taken away in exchange for their removal and only the tank has been taken.

Proposal for 44 new homes in Bawdeswell

This is a 22% increase in the number of dwellings on the previous application and, if granted, could put an even greater burden on the village’s limited amenities, according to local residents.

Reepham Life grants for community projects

Reepham Life is inviting applications from voluntary organisations and community groups to help fund local projects.
Thanks to the generous support received from all our advertisers, publishers Reepham Community Press recorded a small profit in 2016.
Last year, we covered all our costs for printing and distribution, and we plan to make the publication bigger, better and even more widely circulated.
As we are a not-for-profit social enterprise, we will reinvest any profits we make into worthy community projects and good causes.
