ANNUAL ASSEMBLY: 26th April 2022, 7pm at All Saint’s Church, Walsoken

The sun shone recently when Walsoken Parish Council invited local business owner of VIP Hair, Linda, to open the replacement bus shelter in Chapnall Road. The shelter was funded in part by Norfolk County Council, the Community Infrastructure Levy and contributions from Borough & County Councillor J Kirk and County Councillor C Dawson from their Members’ Allowances. It is considered that this replacement shelter has greatly improved the facility and the look of the village. Linda hosts and monitors the defibrillator previously purchased by Walsoken Parish Council and located outside her business in the village and she was invited to open the shelter in recognition of this. Thank you to everyone who attended.
