Phone box opposite Tunstead Primary School

Today I saw that the phone box opposite the primary school in Tunstead had a notice posted by the North Norfolk District Council.

BT PLC wishes to remove some of the lesser used phone boxes in North Norfolk (see the Tunstead & Sco Ruston Parish Newsletter Issue 24 (dated December 2016/ January 2017). However, Parish Councillor Chris Oakes suggested that the phone box opposite Tunstead Primary School be adopted and used as a defibrillator point. To do this the Parish Council would pay £1.00, acquire the defibrillator equipment, and take over the maintenance, once the telephone equipment was removed.

The notice attached to the inside advices that comments on this draft decision be sent in writing by 12:00 Noon on Monday 23rd January 2017 by contacting:

Sandra Bush, PA to Corporate Leadership Team
North Norfolk District Council,
Council Offices
Holt Road
NR27 9EN



I hope you will find this information useful.

Bingo – Good turn-out

Tonight’s (19th January) Bingo session had a good turn-out. 15 people for the bingo, with Alan calling, and Jane and co. doing refreshments, made for a great evening. To top it all Wendy said that £26 had been made for the Hall funds. Having a lot of people makes a real difference. But there is room for more. It adds to the atmosphere as well as adding to the funds. Alan encouraged us to join in the “twiddley” bits; “twenty two, two little ducks”. Though I was busy concentrating as it was my first time. But the rookies were helped along by the others, with Wendy showing the ropes. I would like to thank our table partners; Karen and Linda who guided Chris and myself.

The bingo sessions are run on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month at 7:30pm in the Village portacabin. If as many people (or more) turn up then the fund would be raised by over £600 a year, and that’s just the bingo.

Location of Tunstead Village Hall and Recreation Ground

The Tunstead Village Hall and Recreation Ground can be found just off Market Street. It is down the lane that leads behind the Tunstead Village Primary School. This map will help you find it.

When an event is on, there will be a sign by the entrance of the lane. You will see the sign as you drive slowly along Market Street.
