Yacht pond refilled in North Lodge Park

Investment by North Norfolk District Council in North Lodge Park, Cromer, has seen the yacht pond extensively refurbished and refilled in readiness for the main visitor season.

North Norfolk District Council contracted Thrower & Rutland Ltd to undertake the works, which cost £8,556.50.

The pond, which had been leaking, was drained and then lined with glass-reinforced plastic, giving a 25-year guarantee. The outside of the pond was given a coating of non-toxic mineral paint.

Cllr Nigel Pearce, North Norfolk District Council ward member for Suffield Park, said: “This pond is an iconic part of the town and it is great we have been able to repair and refurbish it so it can bring fun and happiness to the next generation of children and their parents.”

The pond works are one of the elements being undertaken by North Norfolk District Council to improve North Lodge Park.

North Norfolk District Council is also planning minor internal improvements to the café, repairs to the timber footbridge and refurbishments to the bowling green and sunken garden shelters. Possibilities are being explored for Collectors Cabin.

  • NWT is Charity of the year for North Norfolk District Council

    North Norfolk District Council’s Chairman has invited Norfolk Wildlife Trust to be his Charity of the Year, with money raised supporting conservation grazing and family learning.

    Dr Clive Stockton has a personal life-long association with nature and wished to support a charity that specifically works to conserve the fragile habitats of Norfolk and raise awareness of the importance of wildlife.

    Funds raised by NNDC will be used in two key areas of NWT’s work across Norfolk: to support conservation grazing with rare native breeds and to extend engagement with young children in Sure Start centres.

    Conservation grazing with native breed cattle, sheep and ponies protects important areas for wildlife. Without regular grazing, many of our rare and fragile habitats and the species they support would be at risk of being overwhelmed by more dominant plants. NNDC has already shown its own commitment to conservation grazing through the establishment of its Bagot goat herd, 15 of which are on long-term loan to NWT in the Brecks.

  • Flying the (Blue) Flags for North Norfolk’s fabulous beaches

    It’s official: North Norfolk continues to have some of the best beaches in the country.

    The beaches in Cromer, East Runton, Mundesley, Sea Palling, Sheringham and West Runton have all been awarded prestigious Blue Flags for another year – and that means the 45-mile North Norfolk coastline is home to half of all the Blue Flag beaches in the east of England.

    The awards are given out only to those beaches that have the highest quality of water, facilities, environmental education and management, with superb levels of cleanliness and safety. It means the hundreds of thousands of residents and visitors who visit North Norfolk’s beaches each year can be sure they are enjoying top-notch destinations.

    North Norfolk is the only district in the county that has been awarded any Blue Flags this year.
