Fox Planning application goes before Breckland D.C. Planning Committee

The fate of Garbodisham Fox to be decided by Breckland District Council.
Monday 11th October will be a important day for the community of Garboldisham, a rural country village on the Norfolk/Suffolk borders, for it is the day that Breckland District Council’s Planning committee sit to decide whether to let an asset (stripping) company obtain a Change of Use order that would allow the 17th Century Fox Inn public house to be transformed into 5 private dwellings.

There is a lot of support for the “Save the Fox” action group, both within and outside of this community.

It is reported that previous attempts from both the group and interested individuals to purchase the freehold as a going concern have been thwarted by Criterion Asset Management who would seem to have a separate agenda than supporting rural enterprises as expressed by the current coalition government

Garboldisham Village Hall Website launched

The updated Garboldisham Village Hall website was launched today.
Following an interesting and sometimes highly charged AGM (another Blog), a new Village Hall Management Committee was formed with the intention of increasing the public's use of this community venue and attracting more activities into the hall.
Part of this programme was to launch the updated and interactive Garboldisham Village Hall website.
This will keep visitors informed of events not only taking place in the Village Hall but also as a central repository for other Village groups that wish to use the website to keep their followers informed
