A message from you Vice-Chair
On behalf of Framingham Earl Parish Council we would like to express our deepest sympathy on the recent news of the death of H.R.H The Duke of Edinburgh. Our thoughts are with the Queen and other members of the Royal Family at this very sad time.
The Royal website will have an eBook of condolence set up, which can be found at https://www.royal.uk/
South Norfolk District Council will not be encouraging residents to visit the Council’s offices to sign their book of condolence, but will instead be asking you to email email@example.com. All messages received will be archived following the period of mourning.

Allotments Expression of Interest - Unauthorised leaflet
It has been brought to the Parish Councils attention that some leaflets have been distributed within the Parish with regards to "Expression of interest for allotments", these leaflets have been distributed by an independent party and NOT by the Parish Council and without our consent. In addition, an advert appeared in the September edition of the 5+ magazine with regards to "Expression of interest for allotments" this was a publisher error and not the Parish Councils, the advert originally appeared in the March edition and formed part of the agenda of the Annual Parish Council meeting in May. At this meeting it was unanimously agreed by the Parish Council that due to low expression of interest, no suitable land immediately available and level of costs no further action was to be taken on the matter at the present time. The Parish Councils decision in May still stands. If anyone would like to express their interest and is happy for the Parish Council to retain their details please email the Parish Clerk @ and your details will be held on file, so that you can be contacted if the situation changes.
Please refer to our "Coronavirus" page on this website for additional information.

Coronavirus - NHS advice
There are some simple steps we can all take to help keep ourselves safe and prevent the spread of Coronavirus:
Reduce the risk of catching and/or spreading viral infections. Wash your hands! It sounds obvious, but there are so many occasions where we put our hands to our mouth giving viruses an easy way in. Regular handwashing can reduce that risk significantly, and it only takes 20 seconds to wash them properly by following this NHS guide.
Avoid touching your hands to your face as much as possible, especially to your eyes, mouth or nose.
Catch it, Bin it, Kill it … Germs can live on some surfaces for hours. To protect yourself and others, always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Bin the tissue, and to kill the germs, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel.
