Hi there and welcome to This Week at Orwell. Here is a recap of news stories around the Orwell community this last week.
Gardening Competition | Thank you
A big thank you to everyone who sent in their entries to the gardening competition. We had some amazing gardens sent through and look forward to now passing these on to the judges and update you all with the winners in due course.
Fencing update | September 2023
As we move into September, it's been a busy time for our maintenance teams this year, with requests for new fencing or fencing repairs being considerably higher than in recent years.
To ensure that the team can work through this increased demand, we will be introducing a winter plan whereby from November 2023 to February 2024 our Gardening Team will be assisting with smaller repairs, allowing our Maintenance Team to concentrate on those larger, fencing replacement projects.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their patience whilst we work through the current requests.
Should you wish to report a new fencing maintenance request, please get in touch with our Customer Services Team in the usual ways.
Heritage Open Days 2023 | 8th-17th September
Every September thousands of volunteers across England organise events to celebrate our fantastic history and culture. It's your chance to see hidden places and try out new
experiences – all of which are FREE to explore. Including such buildings in the region as Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich and Christ church in Lowestoft.
