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.

Branch of the Month

Back in September 2015 Coltishall was selected as Post Office Branch of the Month. 

Post Office Ltd. uses the Branch of the Month feature as a way of showcasing forward thinking Post Office branches and demonstrating best practice in the integration of the new style Post Office counters into a retail environment.  Unfortunately there was no prize money (!) but we got to make a video to show off our lovely shop.  I hope you enjoy watching it.
