Unfortunately, after a number of years of
successfully facilitating the annual Thompson Live event, it has generally
been agreed by the organisers that there will be a hiatus this year in order
to accommodate the construction of the new Village Hall. Thus the
event will not take place this year.

More Fly-tipping in the Village
The above photo is of the latest incidence of fly-tipping in the village. It looks as though someone has re-fitted a bathroom and couldn't be bothered to dispose of the waste from the re-fit at the tip, instead they felt it was OK to dump the waste on the verge at Church Road, Thompson. The incident has been reported to Breckland Council using the fly-tipping line and photographs provided. If you know who dumped this material please tell Breckland Council or if you prefer let the Parish Clerk know - firstname.lastname@example.org

A successful litter pick was held around the village and roads leading to Thompson. Thanks must go to the 14 stalwarts who turned up for the event and managed to collect the litter and fly tipped items shown in the photograph. Thanks also to Breckland Council who supplied the equipment and collected the rubbish.
Fly tipping is on the increase and we ask that if you see evidence of fly tipped materials or even fly-tipping being carried out, that you report it to Breckland Council using the following link:
