The Parish Council has been granted a licence to treat Greylag Goose and Mallard Duck eggs. The licence permits the Council to treat nests on private property in the village, but only at the invitation of the property owner. 

The Parish Council’s policy of humane management is not a quick fix, but with Parishioners’ support it will maintain current numbers and gradually the flock will reduce to a naturally acceptable balance.

The Parish Council continues to urge residents not to feed the ducks or geese as the food often encourages rats. This is also particularly important to prevent mother ducks bringing ducklings off the ponds and onto the roads

Emergency Contacts and Information


Many mobile phone users already know of the In Case of Emergency (ICE) idea, where details of an emergency  contact are held in their address book on their mobile. However, there have been a number of incidents recently where the emergency services have struggled to locate  next of kin details or details of a person’s medication. There is a universal system known to all emergency services  comprising of a small plastic tub, containing  the relevant details, which is kept in the fridge.  This is especially important for residents who live on their own, but equally useful for anyone who lives with someone with a severe allergy or is on regular medication.  These emergency contact packs are free and are available from the Parish Council Office, Heacham Surgery and the Parish Library.
