D Day Commemorations

This year the UK commemorated the 80th anniversary of the Normandy Landings on 6 June 1944 with a series of major commemorations and events across the UK and in France.

At 8am on 6th June 2024 across the country many people gathered in their towns and villages in readiness for the official commencement of the commemoration of the D Day landings of brave troops in France which heralded the beginning of the end of World War Two, 80 years ago.

Attached is a copy of what Sheringham did to commemorate the occasion.

Project Update

Whilst we wait for additional information required about the new permanent hut foundations, Sheringham Town Council have applied for a planning application which will allow for a temporary hut to be situated on the site, so the green can be opened. (Application: PF/24/0970 – Full details are on the NNDC website)

Work has already been completed on the greens, including a contractor being bought in to tackle the mole issues, re-seeding particularly on the sloped part of the green and new perimeter fencing and entrance gates will be installed very soon.

Although progress may seem slow and we have had numerous hurdles to manage along the way, we are doing everything we can to get the putting green will be opened as soon as possible.

 

Happy St George’s Day

St George was out walking
He met a dragon on a hill,
It was wise and wonderful
Too glorious to kill

It slept amongst the wild thyme
Where the oxlips and violets grow
Its skin was a luminous fire
That made the English landscape glow

Its tears were England’s crystal rivers
Its breath the mist on England’s moors
Its larder was England’s orchards,
Its house was without doors

St George was in awe of it
It was a thing apart
He hid the sleeping dragon
Inside every English heart

So on this day let’s celebrate
England’s valleys full of light,
The green fire of the landscape
Lakes shivering with delight

Let’s celebrate St George’s Day,
The dragon in repose;
The brilliant lark ascending,
The yew, the oak, the rose

Project Update – Beeston Hills

STC purchased the site in order to protect this valuable asset as a Putting Green for generations to come.

Sheringham Town Council now own the Putting Green at Beeston Hills and have started to undertake works ready for the 2024 season ahead.

You will have already noticed that the old hut has been demolished and we plan to site a temporary hut for this season so that the greens can be opened from the May bank holiday.

A full planning application has been approved for a brand new permanent building (PF/23/2578) planned to be sited after this season has ended.

A new entrance gate and perimeter fencing will be installed soon and work is already underway on the outfields and greens.

More updates will follow soon.

Sports Pavilion – Consultation

PUBLIC CONSULTATION – SPRING 2024

This public consultation will seek to obtain feedback from residents and visitors, to understand and incorporate their voices in the decision-making process as we review potential improvements to the Sports Pavilion at Weybourne Road. This Consultation is being undertaken as a statutory requirement, as Sheringham Town Council does not currently hold the “General Power of Competence”.  This means that any activities or changes which will have a need for a large investment, require input from Consultees. Careful consideration will be given to the responses provided, and these will be used to shape the regeneration plans.

An eight-week consultation period will commence from 4th March and run until 28th April 2024.

Consultation methods will be undertaken by electronic surveys, face to face stakeholder pop up events, paper surveys available in public spaces and adverts in local publications.  For those who prefer they can obtain assistance via the Officers of the Council and provide their answers over the telephone or in person at the Council Offices.  We will also send 100 postal surveys to randomly selected residents from the Electoral Roll.

As well as gaining information in relation to the consultation itself, we will gather information which identifies representation in those responding. We will aim to identify Older people (over 60), younger people (under 25), 26 – 59 age group, faith groups, residents, visitors, people from different ethnic backgrounds and those with disabilities.  We will not collect data which will identify individuals.  Sheringham Town Council will store this data securely and use it only to make a judgement about representativeness.

Results of the consultation and data regarding representativeness will be published our website and publicly available upon request.

An evaluation of the consultation will also be undertaken to measure its effectiveness and if changes are required for any future consultations.

The process adopted has be created using guidance from the Local Government Association.  https://www.local.gov.uk/our-support/communications-and-community-engagement/resident-communications/understanding-views-2#:~:text=Best%20practice%20suggests%20you%20should,statutory%20consultation%20has%20specific%20rules). We have also utilised MRS guidance – https://www.mrs.org.uk/pdf/2014-09-01%20Questionnaire%20Design%20Guidelines.pdf
