Cremer’s Meadow is open to the public. The Friends group has been working extremely hard and fast to clear the meadow of junk and rubbish before allowing residents to access it and enjoy it to its full potential. The Meadow can be found by accessing a public footpath located opposite no 19 Blofield Road. The Meadow is through a wooden gate to the left only 25 yards down this lane. The leader of the group is Gill Buckley. Many thanks are owed to Mrs Shirley Cremer who is now the Patron of the Friends of Cremer’s Meadow who has given her blessing for the land to be bought. We have given her the Council’s assurance that the land will remain largely unspoilt and remain in public ownership. Anyone who would like to join the Friends group, please call Gill Buckley on 01603 717064.

Norfolk Biodiversity Awards 2015

Brundall Parish Council is pleased and proud to announce it has been awarded a top honour for its recent acquisition and development of two parcels of land – Cremer’s Meadow and the Countryside Park. It was awarded the honours due to its community efforts to conserve biodiversity and its enthusiasm plus systematic approach taken to develop the green infrastructure within the village. Cremer’s Meadow has its own Friends group to enhance and develop the site for everyone to enjoy in years to come. The Countryside Park which also has a Friends group, boasts an allotment site, a new Woodland bearing native species and areas to walk through including Low Farm Wood, situated to the North of Postwick Lane. The Council has been successful in setting up a new parkrun facility for all which complements nature with health.
