We have two part time weekend job vacancies available immediately.

Weekend Shop Assistant

Weekend News Roundsperson

We have a vacancy for a roundsperson, working Saturday and Sunday Mornings, sorting and delivering newspapers in Coltishall and Horstead, paying up to £55 per weekend.
The job entails receiving the papers in the morning, putting them together and sorting them into rounds, then delivering them to the news boys and girls.  You will also have a van delivery round direct to houses around the edge of Coltishall and Horstead. On Saturday this takes about 3 hours, starting at 5am, and on Sunday about 2½ hours, starting at 6.15am.
You must have a clean driving licence, be physically fit and able to lift packages weighing up to 15kg.  You need to be able to work quickly and accurately and, provided you are over 25, you will be able to use the business van for deliveries.

Grant for Good Neighbour Scheme

The Coltishall and Horstead Good Neighbour Scheme have been successful in getting a grant from the Eastern Daily Press Community Chest scheme, winning £200 to support social outings for the elderly.

Thanks to everyone who has cut out their tokens from the back of the EDP and brought them into the shop.  In February we collected over 1100, and since only 500 are needed to put in for a grant, Good Neighbour Scheme organiser Julie Douglas has passed on the surplus to other organisations.

Please keep collecting the tokens and bringing them in.  We will make sure they go to local community organisations to help them win grants from the EDP.

Ling Way Crossing Petition

Following an accident at the junction of Ling Way and the North Walsham Road, the residents of the area have organised a petition.

There is also Facebook Group to campaign for a controlled crossing or some form of speed control such as a camera.  This road has always suffered from speeding traffic, both entering and leaving the village.  With the bus stopping here as well, and more young families living on the Ling Way estate, something clearly needs to be done.

We have a petition in the shop - please sign it to support the campaign.

Some progress - apparently following a risk assessment the school bus is now going to pull into Ling Way to pick up the children which should be much safer than stopping on the main road - and also cause less congestion.
