Two recent applications by Necton Parish Council to the Dudgeon Community Fund, managed by Norfolk Community Foundation, have provided new facilities for the benefit of users of the community centre.
- New automatic hand-dryers have been installed in all the toilets of the community centre, including the outside public access toilet. This will reduce the reliance on paper towels, providing a financial saving as well as being kinder to the environment.
- New audio equipment has been purchased specifically to enable members of the public to clearly hear the proceedings of Parish Council meetings. This equipment will also be available on request for other events at the community centre.
- A new portable Loop system for use in the community centre, again helping to make events more audible for those with hearing difficulties.
The Parish Council have also received £20,000 in June 2016 towards the installation of bus shelters on either side of the A47. This project is underway at present with the Parish Council working closely with Highways England, Tredwell Developments Ltd and our recently appointed shelter contractor, Westcotec Ltd.
Necton Primary School and Necton First Responders have also benefited from the Dudgeon Community Fund during 2016.
The fund will re-open early in 2017 for more community based applications. Find out more from Norfolk Community Foundation.
