Cost of Living Crisis 2022- Help and Information
Buckenham Woods – an opportunity for Strumpshaw and neighbouring parishes
BUCKENHAM WOOD – AN OPPORTUNITY FOR STRUMPSHAW AND NEIGHBOURING PARISHES
Buckenham Wood in Strumpshaw is in danger: many local residents and visitors who walk their dogs and families around this middle part of the entire woodland are unaware that it is privately owned and not public land belonging to the Parish Council. The landowner has approached Strumpshaw Parish Council to see if it is interested in purchasing the middle 7.4 acre plot in the woods. If this opportunity is not taken up, it will be sold on the open market, and access to use it and enjoy the bluebells will likely be lost forever.
It is intended to set up Buckenham Wood Trust as a community initiative to raise the money necessary to purchase and manage the land in perpetuity. This will enable the local community to use and enjoy it legitimately in ways that do not impact the ancient woodland and its bluebells.
To make this happen Strumpshaw and its neighbouring communities need to come together to realise this opportunity. Please help us save Buckenham Wood for our future generations and scan the QR code here to tell us how you are using the Wood or email your support and any enquires to [email protected]

District Councillor (Member’s) small grant fund
Did you know that you have two District Councillors and that each of them has a personal fund of £500 from Broadland District Council which they can allocate to good causes within this ward?
There are certain Terms and Conditions attached and the main ones are as follows:
Grants must be between £50 – £500
They are usually made to a group rather than to an individual
These grants cannot be made retrospectively
They must not be used for routine maintenance work
Funding could not easily be found elsewhere
The group must not have received member-led funding in the past two years.
In recent years, some of the donations across Broadland went to Older Persons’ groups, Scouts, Guides, Brownies and Rainbows, and one Under 7s football team who bought Touchline Shelters.
If you belong to a group who might appreciate extra help from your District Council as outlined above, or alternatively, if you think you would like to create a new group from scratch and need a small injection of cash to get you started, this may well be the place to try.
If you think we can help, please get in touch with Cllr Jan Davis, Cllr Eleanor Laming
