Denton Changing Shape?

As notified earlier in the year, South Norfolk Council, as part of their on-going Governance Review, have been considering requests for changes to parish boundaries. Denton PC put in a bid for adjusting our boundary with Earsham and this, with the support of our District Councillor, Murray Gray, has now been approved by the relevant SNC committee.

The PC had suggested that five properties currently in Earsham should be moved into Denton. Further details, and a map showing the proposed new boundary, can be seen on the SNC Website
The properties involved are on Danacre, Middle and Denton Roads. The last will presumably be at least partially renamed if the boundary change goes through!

The next stage in the process will be a period of public consultation from 31/8 until 27/10. Everyone is encouraged to join in but we gather that Earsham PC are not objecting to the change. The final act will be seeking the approval of the Local Government Boundary Commission for England.

UPDATE

Further research has now revealed that eight properties would be involved if the proposal is approved. They are:

Fun at the Bouleodrome

From our Boules correspondent.

Competition at this year's Village Boules Championships, held at Mill Farm on Thursday, was as intense as ever.

Congratulations must go, again, to Shabbyabi (Abi, Lorraine & Jon Symons) who regained the much coveted tournament winners trophy.

As luck would have it they played Dogs & Roses (Doris, Chris W & Paul) twice (in the Group and Knockout stages). Both of these matches were very competitive, physically and verbally but Shabbyabi came out on top and went on to beat The No Namers (Sharon, Toby and Malcolm (substituting for Nigel)) in a great final.

Plate winners were Hopeless (who were anything but hopeless) (Charlotte, Kate & Lubi) who triumphed over The Gibson Girls in the Plate Final. Grandma Gibson's cunning plan of buying time by having a 3 course meal before the match sadly didn't pay off but it was worth a try. Longest game of the evening was The No Namers against Earditch (or should that be Shamingham) (Denise & Peter and co).

Official attendance for the evening was 71. Great to see so many kids enjoying the evening and taking part in the tournament. Boules seems to bridge the generations!

Editor's Note: Special thanks to the Godsmarks for organising such a great event.
