Your Parish Council has been working with a team of volunteers to provide the residents of Harling with a dedicated number for you to call if you are self-isolating and have no other help due to COVID-19. We have volunteers who can help with :
• Picking up groceries
• A friendly phone call
• Sending post or a parcel
• Collection of medication
• Dog walking
Call 07936 305 761 to speak to a member of the Parish Council or leave a message and we will call you back ASAP.
COVID-19 is contagious, please take every precaution to ensure you do not spread the virus.
• Avoid physical contact by 2 metres (6 ft.)
• Wash your hands regularly with soap and water (any soap will do!)
All volunteers will have an identification card given to them by the Parish Council.
In the event of central government passing emergency legislation to support the prevention of the spread of Covid-19, the Parish Council are holding an emergency meeting this week with the intention of forming a Pandemic Crisis Management Team.
The Parish Council will do whatever is possible to ensure our most vulnerable residents are cared for and should restrictions be put in place on people’s activity and travel, the Parish Council will continue to support the Parish of Harling in anyway it can.
You can contact your Parish Council by email or telephone, telephone numbers of all members of the Parish Council are on the notice board and on our website.
Harling Parish Council
Back in June the Parish Council held an open day inviting residents to come along and let us know what they want to see and what they don’t want to see in their village. We focused on the old tennis court at the Rec and the most popular choice was for it to be resurfaced for skate boarders and scooters and also an outdoor gym area!
So from later this week the old tennis court is to be cleared and re surfaced with a smooth skating surface and low bumps created for scooters & skaters . Once funds allow we will look at bigger ramps for the more serious skateboarders. Also in this area will be a basket ball hoop for all. PLUS an outdoor gym area will be created next to the play park, multi use gym equipment will be put in for all abilities and ages, this will hopefully be in by February. We hope you will enjoy these new recreational areas funded by the Parish Council and Breckland District Council. Best wishes from all at Harling PC.
Freedom of The Parish Awards 2020
This award was set up in 2017 by Harling Parish Council to recognise residents who had made a difference within our community.
A working committee of the Parish Council was formed who received nominations and after a very lengthy and fair judging period chose a winner/s.
In 2019 it was decided that the awards should be handed over to the Parish of Harling, the Parish Council would act in an administrative capacity only. The judging panel would be made up of previous winners and the Parish Council would have no involvement what so ever in the nomination or judging procedures, apart from the Clerk, who is not entitled to a vote ,but would purely provide administrative support to the committee.
Nominations are welcome from all residents of the Parish of Harling.
This award is to celebrate individuals whose actions have made a difference, have shown great generosity, compassion, dedication and selflessness. These contributions can all too often escape under the radar.
The committee will show no prejudice over a nominees age, race, disabilities, how long they have lived in the Parish, or extent of voluntary contribution within groups/committees.
Please send your nominations to: [email protected] or post to Mrs K Filby 5 The Bailiwick, East Harling
Voting closes on 1st February 2020
We have one plot that has come available in the Poplars section of the allotments, if you are interested please contact the Clerk on 714656 or email your interest to [email protected]
