Welcome to the Tunstead and Sco-Ruston village website.
The parishes of Tunstead and Sco-Ruston are 11 miles north-east of Norwich, 2½ miles from Wroxham and Hoveton. Tunstead is a sprawling village of about 420 homes and just over 700 residents. Most of the parish is located on Market Street, with an additional 33 homes in Anchor Street, which is near to Smallburgh, and Sco-Ruston has around 20 homes. We are a tight-knit community.
We do hope that you find your visit helpful and that you call back regularly as the contents are often updated.

Please note that part of Crowgate Street will be closed off for water pipe replacement on 27th – 29th October.
Following the new Government guidance issued on gatherings, both inside and out, and a maximum of 6 people allowed, the Parish Council have postponed the upcoming meeting.
We will continue to monitor guidance and any changes and will hope to meet on 20th October, if we are able to do so by that time.
After many years without a home football team, the Tunstead Village Hall and Recreation Ground Committee are pleased to announce that Barracks FC of the Norwich & District Sunday League, 2nd Division, have chosen to use our football pitch as their home ground.
Barracks FC have played a number of pre-season friendlies on our pitch, and liked it so much they asked us to host their home games. So it is with great pleasure that our small team of groundskeepers and the committee agreed to support them as our new home team.
Today we held a Welcome Event at which the manager of Barracks FC and the chairman of our committee formally accepted the contract to hold their home matches on our pitch for the 2020/2021 season. After the formalities, Barracks FC, who can field two teams, held a Team 1 Vs Team 2 demonstration match.
Whilst these are difficult times for everyone, we are able to hold a “COVID secure” facility for them on their bi-weekly visits to us. So if you feel you can support us and our new Home Team, and wish to join our groundskeeping team please email – [email protected]
