10k Charity Walk 26th November 2017

Open Reach will be holding a 10k charity walk from Santon Downham Village Hall on Sunday, 26th November 2017.    The event organisers have sent out letters to their runners advising them to take care when parking their cars.  Marshals will be on hand and the area will be signposted and coned off.

The Village Hall will be selling teas/coffees and bacon butties (sorry no cakes) on this day mainly for the walkers but of course the village residents will be more than welcome to pop in and of course, to cheer on the walkers.

We are happy to advise that there are now some books on the shelves in the Phone Box and anyone may help themselves to a book to read, or add another to the shelf.

We have, following a most successful training course, added the defibrillator equipment to the Phone Box but we are currently showing this as “not in use” until all Emergency Service requirements have been followed.
