Friday 20th July 2018 – SNAP Meeting, Beeston Common, Jelly Fish and the Day of the Gatekeepers

On Monday evening we attended the Safe Neighbourhood Action Panel (SNAP) meeting at North Lodge Park. Normally there is a good turnout of panel members but not this time. PC Barry Cresswell reported; he had visited The Belfry School here in Overstrand in response to concerns of both parking and manner of driving of parents taking their children to school. As a result, the school will send out a letter to parents informing them of concerns and speed checks on this stretch of road have taken place. The traffic offences report showed in the three months from April to June over 400 drivers have been recorded speeding on the road from Norwich into Roughton. Provisions have been put in place to avoid another episode, like the one in 2017, when travellers caused problems in Cromer during Carnival Week. It was decided by the panel to continue into the next period with the current two police priorities of Speeding and High Visibility Patrols in the C22 area.

After reading on Facebook that Beeston Common currently has a good population of butterflies, on Tuesday morning we went along in the hope of seeing some different species to those in and around Overstrand. Unfortunately we arrived when there was cloud cover and a good breeze and as a result there were only a few meadow browns about and what looked like a comma which flitted across in the distance. Not a waste of time because there were plenty of wildflowers and marsh habitats to look at.
