Dog Fouling in Wereham
Dog owners in Wereham please ensure that you collect your dogs waste when walking anywhere in the village residential or fields. A child from the primary school bus recently stepped in some left on the Wereham Village Pond area near the Red Telephone box recently which is completely unacceptable and anti social behaviour. The Clerk and Councillors will stop dog walkers at random to check they have the necessary bags to clear up after themselves. Please if anyone sees someone not picking up waste to report to the Borough Council even with photographic evidence if possible and they will investigate. Any offence from a person found guilty could b fined up to £1000. LETS KEEP OUR VILLAGE CLEAN AND PROTECT OUR CHILDREN!
Welcome to the official website for Wereham Parish Council.
Wereham is a quiet rural west Norfolk situated 5.5 miles south east of Downham Market. The village has around 308 homes and an electorate of 556 (2017). The village boasts many historical buildings and a pretty village pond looked over by St Margarets Church which dates from the 13th Century. Wereham Village Hall is a key community hub and is currently the focus of a major Lottery Funding bid by Wereham Village Hall Management Committee for full replacement. The local pub the George and Dragon offers a friendly space to relax.
Wereham Parish Council is made up of 7 members who all live in Wereham and volunteer their time to serve their local community. The Parish Council is the third tier of government under the Borough Council of Kings Lynn and West Norfolk and Norfolk County Council. We meet every other month to discuss and make decisions on items such as:
- The upkeep of the village grounds in particular the village pond.
- Management of the Cemetery
- St Margaret’s Church – Closed Churchyard (Health and Safety Only as a Public Open Space) (Memorials, Wall, Grass and Trees)
- Management and maintenance of the Play Area and Playing Field.
- St Margarets Church Clock.
- Street lighting maintenance.
- Tree maintenance.
- Liaising with highways to flag up safety issues.
- Dog fouling bins.
We also make comments on all Planning Applications although the decision on these remains with the Borough or County Council.
