Support for Playground

Great Witchingham Parish Council’s appointed working group is raising funds for a playground for the children of Great Witchingham and surrounding areas. The park will be a safe environment for our children to play together within the village.

You can currently support the park by visiting Tesco Drayton Superstore – Fakenham Road Drayton and using any bag for life tokens in our slot, which is currently up until 30th April. If you wish to get involved or would like to make a donation please contact either Jasmin Hague ( or Gemma Bobbin (

We thank you for any support received

Annual Parish Meeting

The Parish Council advises that the Annual Parish Meeting will be held on Thursday 14 March 2019, at 7.30pm in Great Witchingham Village Hall, Hubbards Loke, Great Wichingham.

The Parish Meeting is an opportunity for parishioners on the Register of Electors for Great Witchingham to raise any matters of concern that relate to the local community. It would be helpful to have written notice of any matters to be raised for inclusion on the agenda but it is not essential. Matters can be raised at the meeting without prior notice.

Please provide the Clerk to the Council with matters for inclusion on the agenda by Monday 25 February


Calendars for bin collections

The annual calendars for all bin collections have now been made digital, so can be accessed by residents via the Broadland District Council website and be printed at home or downloaded onto computers/mobile devices.

This change has been made due to increased online access and the issues we’ve had when delivering the calendars during the bad weather we typically experience at this time of year. As calendars are left under residents’ bin-lids rain can damage them and results in many calendars being unusable. To counter this we have made the decision to put the calendars online only and we will not be delivering calendars under the bin lids as normal. Residents will be able to find the calendar relevant to them by using the online bin finder.

If there are issues surrounding computer/internet access we are able to print copies internally and send them to residents via post.

Collection Days over Christmas 2018

Residents whose collection day change is before their normal collection day will be sent a flyer highlighting that their collection day is being brought forward. Those whose collection day change falls after their normal collection day will be able to find out this information online and in the Broadland News.
