Litter Pick, Saturday 19th October  10am-2noon

This as many already know is a very important activity which we carry out twice a year and it is amazing and disappointing to see just how rubbish is left around the village and countryside. Unfortunately we had had to cancel the list litter pick due to the atrocious weather conditions. Please can we have volunteers for our next one. All safety gear is provided, you may wish to have your own gloves.  We meet at Broome Village Hall from 9.30 am, teams of two then go to designated areas so that we cover as much of the village as possible. Meet back at the hall, dump the rubbish ready for a welcome cuppa etc.
Hope to see you there.


There will be a meeting of C.A.M.E.O. Club on Friday 25th October  from 2.00pm to 4.00pm in Broome Village Hall. All are welcome. Join us for tea, coffee and homemade cakes, maybe have some fun with a game of cards, scrabble or dominoes or just have a chat and meet people. We have a selection of books to borrow. The cost is just £1 including refreshments.
Hope to see you there.
From the C.A.M.E.O. Team

November 2019

This year, our All Souls service will take place on Sunday 3rd November at 3pm at Earsham Church. This is a time when you can come to church to remember departed loved ones, whether they have passed away recently or several years ago. The gentle service will last about 40 minutes and there will be the opportunity to light candles in memory of your loved ones. Afterwards, refreshments will be served and people will be around for a chat, if you would like to stay.

Our Remembrance Sunday service will take place at 10:50am on 10th November at Broome Church where we will read out the names of those who lost their lives during the wars from the villages of Broome, Ditchingham and Hedenham. There will also be a contemporary Remembrance service at Ditchingham School at 10am.

Energy Advice Cafe Capture

Friday 8th May marks the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe
Broome Parish Council is planning to celebrate this event, on the Saturday, with  a family day at the village hall and on the green behind. As we did last year with the 100th Anniversary of peace in 1918 we will be inviting residents from all our surrounding villages. For this to be really successful we need a small team of volunteers,(that word again) with ideas. It is not too early to start planning so, if you would like to be involved please contact Fred on 01986 895414.
