March Bulletin

In the, we hope temporary, absence of a parish magazine, Walsingham Parish Council has produced a printed Bulletin which is being delivered to all houses in the village. Included is important information about the forthcoming local elections, what’s on in Walsingham and more.

Walsingham Parish Council is also pleased to announce the refurbishment of the playground in Wells Road. We hope that families will enjoy the new equipment.

Formal opening of the Playground will be with the Primary School on Thursday 26th March at 2.30pm. All are warmly welcome.
