Yaxham News

At a meeting of some of the interested parties, held at the Village Hall last week, it was agreed to set up a Community Car Scheme

Although funding is tighter than we would have liked, it was agreed that on the basis of a gradual uptake of the service, we will hopefully be able to run a subsidised service for the community

We are now working on various logistics that will take a little time to sort out eg Bank Account, Constitution, Driver registration, Scheme co-ordination. Once all of these are finalised  we will be in a position to get started.

In the meantime, if you are in urgent need for help to get to a medical appointment, call Peter Smith 01362696555 and we will try and see if we can arrange some support.



A number of responses in the Community Led Plan were from people looking for the opportunity to have an allotment space. Apart from some encumbered land in Paper Street, the Parish Council has so far not found any suitable options for the demand.

The CLP steering group has been on the look out for alternative options and whilst it does not fulfill the idea of a community growing project, available allotment space has been found that may satisfy the needs of some villagers.

If you are interested in taking up a plot or maybe would rather start with a half plot, give Peter Smith a call  696555 and he will point your garden fork in the right direction!

About Yaxham

Yaxham is a small rural village situated in the heart of Norfolk, about sixteen miles to the west of Norwich and two miles south east of the nearest market town, Dereham. There are about 600 inhabitants in settlements of Yaxham and Clint Green with farmland between. The medieval Church of St Peter with its late C11 or early C12 circular west tower lies at the heart of the village conservation area.

There is a modern village hall built in 1977 and recently extended with excellent facilities for a variety of functions. The adjacent Jubilee Playing Field where Yaxham Football team plays is also the venue for car boot sales and occasional outside fetes and dog shows. There is also a young childrens' play area with swings and climbing frame.

Yaxham House is a former rectory built 1820-22 and Holland's Hall in Brakefield Green is a late C16 farmhouse. Boronia Cottage has 1611 scratched in an east gable and Willow Farmhouse is late medieval with C16 and C17 improvements and modern additions.

Yaxham has a VA Primary School which has been completely rebuilt to accommodate 90 pupils. The village has a great Village Hall with a licensed bar and a Social Club and Yaxham Mill which is a restaurant with accommodation. There is also the Mid Norfolk Railway for enthusiasts with weekend trains travelling from Dereham to Wymondham and stopping at Yaxham station.

Access to Norwich is easy along the A47 and there is also a regular hourly bus service during the day connecting Yaxham to Dereham and to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and the City Centre.
