  • Ed Maxfield at Bacton school
    Article: Mar 30, 2018

    Every child deserves an excellent education and families deserve every possible support to reduce the stresses and pressures involved in bringing up children. Norfolk is set to receive nearly £3 million of government funding to improve support for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and the Council is consulting on the best way to invest the money. I want to encourage everyone to grab this chance to have your say about SEN provision in Norfolk.

  • Vale Road gates
    Article: Mar 30, 2018

    The gates are open again on Vale Road, Mundesley giving access to the beach. They were closed after the recent bad weather because there had been some slippage of the cliff which had cracked one of the areas where cars often park. NNDC tell me they are continuing to monitor the cliffs.

    A lot of palm oil was deposited on the beach right along from the edge of Trimingham down to Bacton and NNDC tell me this has now been cleaned up. If any more appears, you can contact me to let me know and I will report it.

  • Mundesley Children's Centre
    Article: Feb 12, 2018

    Norfolk County Council set its budget today. I spoke out against cuts to Children's Centre Services. Here's the text of my speech. You can also read more here.

    Thank you Mr Chairman.
    I'll begin by confirming that I will be supporting the Labour group's amendment today and I want to briefly say something about children's services.
  • Pothole
    Article: Jan 28, 2018

    Passing Carrow House (a County Council office) round the corner from County Hall last week I noticed a pothole developing round a 'manhole' cover. Couple of hours later walking back from my meeting it had been fixed! Made me think it's time for a Pothole of the Year campaign - what's the longest time you have had to wait for a pothole to be fixed? I'm sure we'll find County Highways are just as quick off the mark for road repairs that are not outside County Council offices!
