A Wells Primary School dinner lady, a young woman who works to support youngsters with learning difficulties and a local crab dresser will be among the first Homes for Wells tenants for the newly converted Old School.
This represents an astounding achievement for a group of volunteers who got together in 2006 to form Homes for Wells to help provide affordable accommodation for local people. This followed a survey which showed that as a result of the town’s popularity over 20% of houses have become second homes or holiday lets, which has pushed house prices and rents beyond the reach of many indigenous folk.
North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) is celebrating ten years of working together successfully with volunteers from Holt Day Centre at Green Flag award-winning Holt Country Park.
For the last ten years, NNDC’s Countryside Rangers have been joined by volunteers from Holt Day Centre to undertake practical conservation work including building a sensory garden, making butterfly habitats, planting trees, gardening and creating habitats for mini beasts and amphibians.
North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) has announced it is to become a Dementia Friendly Council.
Working in partnership with the Norfolk Dementia Friendly Alliance, the Council will be delivering awareness training to staff to enable them to understand dementia and the issues that face sufferers of dementia and their families and carers.
