The new defibrillator has been installed next to the main entrance to the St.Faiths Centre. It is operational and registered on the national database so that the ambulance service can issue the lock code if appropriate following a 999 call.

Work has just started on the additional play equipment being installed at the park on Coltishall Lane which will include a new set of swings, a wheelchair access roundabout, a multiplay area and skateboard facilities.

Three new benches have been sited at Swan Plain and it is hoped that this will encourage more use of this area as a village amenity.

In early May the Coltishall Lane allotments were subjected to some wanton vandalism with a shed and three greenhouses damaged. No culprits have been apprehended but anyone with any information is asked to contact the police on 101. 

The Council have decided that, at this point, there is no practical solution which would give added security. Overhanging hedges become an increasing problem at this time of year and residents are asked to give consideration to neighbours and passing pedestrians.

Some inconsiderate walkers have been wandering off the designated footpath which leads from Newton Street through Middle Farm to Horsham St. Faith. Walkers are reminded to keep to the clearly signed route and not to trespass on adjoining farmland.

At the May meeting Ray Browne was re-elected as chairman for 2024/25 and Barry Coe was appointed vice-chairman.
