Beacon Extension Project underway

19 April 2024

Phase 2 of the town’s Beacon of Hope partnership project is underway. The foundations have been dug and landscaping prepared for the installation of the paving, seating area and beacon plinth & panels.

Funded in part by UKSPF from South Norfolk Council’s Pride in Place Community Grant, this will create a fully accessible and additional tranquil seating area overlooking the Mere where visitors can reflect on the town’s history and recent events including memories of the Queen’s life and the King’s Coronation. A unique material record will be contained within a time capsule buried in its base and the amenity will act as a key focal point for special occasions such as the 80th anniversary of D-day on 6th June.

Pride in Place funding is part of the UK government’s Shared Prosperity Fund.
