New Year Talks at North Runcton VMP

We hope that you will be interested in attending three talks to be held at the North Runcton VMP in coming weeks.

~~We regret that the talk on Thursday has been cancelled and apologise for the short notice~~

Thursday 25th January, 7:45pm

Planning for Biodiversity

Mike Jones, Planning and Advocacy Manager at Norfolk Wildlife Trust, will be telling us about last year’s NWT ‘State of Nature’ report and discussing protecting
and enhancing biodiversity in our changing environment.

Refreshments will be provided.

We have been unable to come up with a different date at the VMP this winter for the above talk.
However we feel the proposed presentation would have been timely to hear due to both the current government directive that Parish Councils
should develop and adopt a biodiversity policy, and the fact that we have very major development planned in the Parish
and presently at planning consultation stage.

We therefore plan to hold the presentation and any related discussion as a webinar in February.
Date to be confirmed. Please look out for further announcements.


Thursday 22nd February, 7:45pm

A Tour of Houghton Hall Walled Garden

with Houghton gardeners, Richard and Rosie Ernst.
Richard and Rosie live in the village and we are looking forward to hearing how they have worked to develop this garden.
Refreshments will be provided.


Thursday 28th March, 5.00-8.00pm (TBC)

Community History Night

Clive Bond, planner, academic and Chairman of King’s Lynn Archaeological Society, will be talking about the archaeology and historic landscape of North Runcton
and its setting – and considering the likely impact of proposed development in the Parish.

We will also be inviting all residents with an interesting story or photograph to come along and share it and we will have a display of documents the PC already have.
Do come along and find out about your local heritage!
As an additional attraction – food and drinks will be provided as a kind contribution from the RRT ‘Red Tent’ team!


Please Report Flytipping!

It is illegal to flytip and perpetrators will be fined £1000. You can be jailed for multiple offences. Householders can be fined up to £600 for failing to show a duty of care in having waste removed from their property.

This rubbish in Chequers Lane includes about a tonne of plaster, a broken chair, a broken trestle and other building waste. Someone local probably knows exactly where this came from! Report flytippers to the Borough Council Fly-tipping (illegal dumping) | Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk ( or the Police!
