Looking for help please!

Can you list any community groups you attend, run, know within Mattishall and any contact details would be great.

We would like to help our community by knowing what groups are available. This will also help Community Enablers who will contact groups from time to time to ensure that they are aware of the funding and training opportunities that Breckland has to offer.

Parish Council meeting held on 5th July is CANCELLED due to recent covid infections and holidays. This is rescheduled for next Monday 11th July.

PLAY AREA REOPENED we are extremely pleased to confirm the play area has now reopened. We have been working closely with our insurers to ensure they were happy with the health and safety measures put in place until the wall can be repaired. Please can we ask parents, carers and responsible adults to supervise their children at all times and refrain from touching the fence in place to keep you all safe. Thank you. Please help spread the word.
