Old Hunstanton Village Sign

Hunstanton Village Sign

The Village Sign was presented to the village by the Women’s Institute to mark the Queen’s Silver Jubilee. It was unveiled on Tuesday 13th September 1977 by the Chairman of the Norfolk Federation of Women’s Institute, Mrs. Jill Scott and blessed by the Reverend Paul Alton, Vicar of St. Mary’s Church, Old Hunstanton.

The Sign shows a man on horseback holding a javelin. When the le Strange family first came to Old Hunstanton they got the sturdiest manto ride the biggest charger and throw a javelin out to sea. The land to the seaward side became the le Strange property. Also shown are Old Hunstanton Hall, the le Strange home, and the crests of thele Strange family and the Women’s Institute. Buried under the sign is a set of today’s coins and a casket containing a record of today’s food prices.

Local craftsman, Mr. Harry Carter of Swaffham made the sign and the plinth, made of Norfolk flints and red brick was made by Mr. Tony Richardson of Old Hunstanton.

 

PCC launches council tax consultation

Would you pay more council tax to help fund policing in Norfolk? That is the question being posed by the county’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).

PCC Lorne Green will soon have to decide whether to increase or freeze the policing element of council tax to fund next year’s policing service, and he wants to know what the Norfolk public thinks.

The initial two options Norfolk residents are being asked to consider are:

In addition, if they support an increase, taxpayers are being asked how much they would be prepared to pay if the cap were to be lifted. The options being presented are:

The consultation will run until Friday 22 December and people can have their say via an online survey or by getting in contact with the Norfolk PCC office. Hard copies of the survey are also available on request.

The PCC will take his budget proposals to the Norfolk Police and Crime Panel on 6 February 2018.
