The Last One?
For many years the five Parish Councils that cover the Earsham District Council Ward have held an annual Joint Meeting to share common experiences and hear some guest speakers. This year it was Denton's turn to act as hosts so the latest one was held at Denton Village on Thursday.
There were two guest speakers. First up was someone with a great local connection, one Kevin Hanner, son of the Sheriff. Kevin described his work with "the Feed", a Norwich social enterprise charity which supports the homeless, helping people access long term housing, training and employment. They run a catering business and café in Norwich staffed by the people they support with 100% of their profits go to charity. Further details are on their Website.
Following Kevin was PC Jim Squires our local Police Community Engagement Officer. He explained the impact of cuts on policing, the way that the local team in Harleston were trying to work with the community and answered questions from the audience. The Police Information on our website has been updated to reflect the new situation.
Sadly, the change to ward boundaries due next May will mean that this may be the last of these useful joint meetings.
