Middleton is a thriving parish within the county of Norfolk, England.
This website is intended to be your local resource for village life in Middleton, Fair Green, Blackborough End and Tower End.
We aim to provide you with an up-to-date source of information relevant to whole parish.
The content and functionality of this site shall be expanded over time. Please feel free to make any suggestions or comments with regards the content of the site to either the parish clerk or the web site adminsitrator.
Plans are being made to enable the people of Middleton to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War 1 later this year. The events are likely to focus on 10 and 11 November. Further discussions are underway on the details, but initial ideas include:
· An exhibition of locally sourced art, poems, stories, photos and artefacts;
· Tree planting with commemorative plaque;
· Some form of locally crafted permanent tribute.
We are in the process of developing a dedicated page, which hopefully should be completed in the next couple of weeks, so please do check here for further updates on this and on the commemorations as the plans are confirmed.
Middleton Parish Council will be holding their Annual Parish Meeting at 7pm on Wednesday, 4 April in the Village Hall.
This is not a routine Parish Council meeting, but rather an opportunity for all residents to find out what the Parish Council and other organisations have been doing on your behalf and to ask questions. Please come along to have your say on local issues.

It has been agreed with Sibelco at a meeting held on 30th November 2017 (minutes attached) that if residents or parish councillors become aware of inappropriate driving or speeding by HGV’s at any time, and ideally if a number plate can be obtained, then an e-mail with as many details as possible of the issue should be sent to Nicola.firstname.lastname@example.org.
They will investigate to see if the vehicle was heading to or from our Leziate site and seek to take appropriate action in relation to the driver and/or haulier.
They have already sent a letter to their contract hauliers to remind all drivers of their responsibilities on the public highway generally and in the vicinity of the Leziate site in particular.
