New Boundary Proposed

Next Monday, March 26th, South Norfolk Council’s Cabinet will receive a report which proposes a new Development Boundary for Denton. This, effectively, includes the planning officers’ response to the six potential development sites put forward by various landowners last year.

Further details can be found in the latest update to the Planning Page of the Features section.

Summer in Sight

Rather appropriately after the previous news item, the Gardening Club are pleased to announce the details of their Summer Programme.

Compost Kick-off

The new season for Denton’s very successful Compost Scheme starts on Sunday 15th April.

This will be the Scheme’s ninth year. Anyone wishing to join for the first time should contact one of the organisers.

Volunteers have done sterling work over the past 9 years to collect and process garden waste and have raised almost £5,000 for village projects. However, time has marched on and they are getting older!! They we would therefore welcome any offers of help to keep the scheme running.

Compost for sale — with Spring on the way we have finished compost available. Further details are available from the organisers: Liz Cargill Tel: 788862 or Anne Carden Tel: 788279.

Denton TT Results

From our Table Tennis correspondent – Boris

There were three new competition winners at the Denton Table Tennis Tournament on Friday 2nd March.

The junior girls’ event was won by Lydia Sida-Page in convincing style against a visitor, Isobel. With last year’s ladies’ winner out of the country, Jo Crowhill, another visitor and Charlie’s sister, took the opportunity and overcame strong resistance from Emma Whipps to take the Open title; score 21–16. The men’s title was won by Steve Whiteman in a closely contested final against Chris Whipps; 21–19.

The organisers would like to thank all the competitors and spectators who threw themselves into the spirit of the evening for their annual feast of “whiff-whaff”.

Murder Most Foul

Look out! A dastardly deed is shortly to be committed in the village. For further information, and details of how you can play your part, go to our Coming Events page.
