Late night opening planned for 30 October

Reepham’s traders are planning a late night opening on Wednesday 30 October in the run-up to Halloween. Many shops have said they will stay open at least until 8 pm. If the trial proves successful, more evening openings are planned ahead of Christmas.
The event, which is backed by the Reepham Town Team and Chamber of Commerce, will be a great opportunity for residents to show their support for the town’s businesses.

Let's hear it for Hampton's

I’m feeling very sad this morning.  I heard yesterday that the enthusiasm of one of our successful new businesses owners is being badly knocked by the actions of a few disgruntled people who appear to want to get that business closed down.
Can I say, here and now, that I love Hampton’s and think it is a huge asset to Reepham.  I believe it is a perfect example of how a small town like ours can become home to key independent businesses.

Last year at this time we were bemoaning the lack of cricket because of the amount of rain that had fallen in the first half of the season. This year, again, too many games have been called off and to this has been added weather better suited to tea and toast by the fire. Fortunately, recent weekends have been genuinely summery and the spectators have been able to remove a couple of outer layers of clothing.

Your new Chairman of the Chamber

I'm proud to be able to announce that at the Chamber of Commerce meeting on Tuesday 25 June, members did me the honour of appointing me as their new Chairman. I'm grateful to Alex Albery for volunteering to take on the role as our secretary.
I'm a strong believer in Reepham's business community - I think it has an unrivalled diversity and that we can compete readily with other small towns in the area. I want to see the Chamber working closely with other groups and organisations to grow our prosperity.
