Covid19 Update

Posted 28/3/2020
On behalf of Redenhall with Harleston Town Council, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our residents who are helping the fight against Coronavirus. Whether it be supporting the needs of vulnerable or isolating residents - delivering essential groceries or medicines, or just being at the end of a phone for a friendly chat. It is all vital work supporting our special community. 
Please be reassured that we, as your Town Council, are working closely with both South Norfolk Council and Norfolk County Council and other support networks, such as the Waveney Foodbank. We are making sure all funds that are available are applied for and that we will have in place support for those that need it. 
The council office is closed to members of the public, however we still have office staff supporting and providing letters and lanyards for the volunteers collecting shopping and medicines. Our maintenance team are still working to maintain the cleanliness of the town ( early in the morning) and are looking after the assets run by the town council and responding to any maintenance issues that arise.
All calls to the Town Council office are being diverted to our Town Clerk, Lynda Ling, who is working from home and will be able to advise and signpost accordingly. 

Essential business only will continue to be undertaken by our councillors, via video conferencing, who are working hard behind the scenes  - as well as the excellent co-ordinating support on the ground by Councillor Pegg.
Please take a look at our Harleston's Kindness Help Hub website, set up by Councillor Graham with support from other councillors. This website is a vital link to support residents during the crisis.

Please remember we are there to help residents through this.
As our Prime Minister says "We are living in unprecedented times; we are in this together."
Stay at home
• only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
• Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people (social distancing)
• Wash your hands as soon as you get home
You can spread the virus even if you don't have symptoms.
Please stay safe everyone
Councillor Frances Bickley

Update on Recreation Ground

Posted 9/5/2019

Harleston Town Council has agreed for the following TEMPORARY measures to be installed on the Recreation Ground by Harleston Town Football club to meet the Football Association ground grading requirements.

The football pitch to be extended by 6 metres to be the correct match size.

A foot path along the goal end of the pitch (from The library entrance to the tea hut). This will allow for safe standing during matches and also better disability access around the pitch.

The football pitch will have a new fence installed around the whole area, which will allow the area to be enclosed on match days only. At all other times the area will be fully accessible by the public, this includes the footpaths.

Floodlights will be installed as per the planning permission granted by South Norfolk Council earlier this year.

The football club have agreed that they have outgrown our Recreation Ground and these temporary measures have been agreed to enable the club to continue in their current league whilst they talks are held and action is taken to secure new facilities elsewhere within the town. Talks are already underway and planning is currently taking place with the support of the town council.

A legal agreement will be in place to ensure that the Recreation Grounds are returned to their original condition when the football club move to a new home.
