    News that Norfolk is to lose all of its Police and Community Support Officers and police station front desks will close in Cromer and North Walsham is a real worry.

    The plans are part of a programme of spending cuts proposed by the Norfolk Police force.

    PCSOs are really valued locally, providing an extra pair of eyes when it comes to keeping communities safe. Closing front desks in Cromer and North Walsham is just another step in the gradual erosion of community-based policing in North Norfolk. It will make the police a little more distant from local people and make it harder for people to make contact with the police when they need them. Coming in the wake of the trouble that flared in Cromer in the summer this is particularly worrying.

    Article: Oct 28, 2017

    A few weeks ago I used the Paston Way to get from home (in North Walsham) to a meeting in Knapton. I was disappointed to discover that steps down one of the old railway embankments were broken. The barrier marking the closure of the path at that point had been ripped away too so I only discovered it when I reached the slope.

    I was sad to learn of the closure of Mundesley Hospital. I visited the hospital last year and it was clear that the team there was committed to providing good quality care to patients. After the CQC report in the summer, though, it was clear that extensive action was needed to get things up to standard.

    The County Council is preparing a transport strategy for some of Norfolk's market towns. North Walsham is one of the first areas to be looked at and I want to make sure that local people have a say on transport problems and possible solutions.
