Norfolk County Council is developing a package of support to help give families peace of mind in the run up to Christmas and over the winter months by helping those who need it to have food on the table and other essentials, so every child will be warm and well-fed this winter. A key part of this support package is about food and the County Council is working with food voucher company Edenred to provide support for all those eligible for free school meals, children in the early years who receive pupil premium and all of the council’s care leavers during the Christmas holidays.
The voucher scheme is important but a wider package of support for winter will be announced.
Ask for support
If you need support now do not wait but find information at www.norfolk.gov.uk/coronavirus or by calling 0344 800 8020.
Norfolk County Council and Norfolk schools are encouraging more families to register and apply for free school meals, so that they begin to receive support in time for the school holidays. To find out if you are eligible and to register for free school meals visit: https://www.norfolk.gov.uk/education-and-learning/schools/school-meals-and-milk.
Wider Package of Support
As part of the wider package of support the council will be further extending the Norfolk Assistance Scheme, which already provides support for food, fuel, clothes and other essential household items to Norfolk’s residents experiencing hardship. Visit www.norfolk.gov.uk/NAS or if no internet call 01603 223392 (option 5). If the line is busy, they can leave a message and the team will call back.

Our reading volunteers are desperately needed because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Thousands of children won’t have had enough reading practice during the first lockdown let alone the second. In a normal year, one in four children leave primary school unable to read well. Most children will have missed a term of school, so the reading gap is now even wider. Children who struggle with reading are more likely to live in poverty and be unemployed as adults.
Schoolreaders needs more volunteers in Walsingham to support children’s reading and prevent them falling further behind. If you want to make a difference to a child’s life, apply to become a Schoolreader. No qualifications are needed; just a love of reading and some spare time each week.
To join us, please visit the website www.schoolreaders.org/volunteer-application-form

Let’s keep Walsingham litter free!
As part of our Walsingham Open Spaces for All project, we asked the Walsingham Primary schoolchildren for some artwork to illustrate our new ‘Please keep Walsingham tidy’ signs. They have done brilliantly; look out for their signs around the village.
