They’ve warned against the setting-off of fireworks in public places as Bonfire Night approaches…..and the throwing of eggs will be treated as an offence of criminal damage. Special posters have been made available to download on police websites and display on windows if people don’t want to be disturbed.
DISS MAIN STREET SET FOR MORE WORK
More roadworks are to take place on the busy main street through Diss shortly.
Work will start on Victoria Road to improve the pedestrian crossing near the town’s leisure centre on Monday, November 5th. The work will last for about two weeks, with temporary traffic lights in operation. The road will also be closed for one day – Sunday the 18th, with a diversion in place.
ROADWORKS IN TWO SOUTH NORFOLK VILLAGES
Roadworks may cause problems in two villages in South Norfolk next week.
In Pulham Market, repairs to the road surface will close Market Place from Monday, while in North Lopham, a £3,000 scheme to extend a footpath from Cherry Tree Close to The Green will mean temporary traffic lights in operation.
Meanwhile, a £2,000 grant provided by the Gregg’s Foundation has paid for major renovation work on Ottomer Pond, one of five ponds on the 45-acre village green at Old Buckenham.
WARNING OVER TAX SCAM PHONE CALLS
Norfolk police have warned people to be on their guard for a tax scam, after a spate of fraudulent cold calls.
The warning comes after a series of nearly 20 calls this morning across the county. In the call, an automated message claims to be from H.M.R.C and that the person called owes money following a court case.
LAMBERT TO TAKE OVER AT THE BLUES
