Swanton Abbott Village Website

Welcome to the Swanton Abbott website. 

Here you will find all sorts of information about the village and what's on offer in terms of clubs, activities, services and local business.

     





Hello Everyone

The website is maintained by volunteers and always intends to be as accurate and up-to-date as possible. If you spot any errors or have new information then please let us know to ensure that it provides relevant and helpful information to the community. You'll find the contact email address on the Parish Council page.

Facebook!

We do have an active Facebook group which is available to all villagers that is the best way to keep up with current village events.


Village Sign Appeal


We need your help towards a new village sign.

Our current village sign and post are beyond repair. A local Stonemason, Nick Hindle, with connections to Swanton Abbott can sculpt a new sign in granite, which would be long-lasting, and have the same painted picture on the top as the current sign.

It would be good to have our new village sign erected in our Queen's Jubilee Year.

If you would like to make a donation towards our new village sign, please contact our Parish Clerk, Gill Kimmerling by e-mail loomscot@live.co.uk or 01692-538971.


Norfolk Warm Homes

Keeping Norfolk Warm Could you be eligible for a Warm Homes grant? The Norfolk Warm Homes Partnership is providing heating and insulation grants to our residents to help keep homes warm across Norfolk! If you want to keep your energy bills low and reduce your carbon emissions, installing insulation in your home is one of the best ways to keep the heat in, and the cold out.

UltraFast Broadband

Swanton Abbott currently benefits from broadband speeds up to 40mbps and sometimes higher via a fibre connection to the telecoms cabinet and then with copper connections to the houses. If fibre cabling was connected directly to each house the broadband speed can reach many hundreds of Mbps, significantly faster than what we have now. We've seen our internet usage soar in the last couple of years, and with TV and video streaming, gaming, Zoom and communications all eating into our bandwidth, our current connection speeds are unlikely to be enough in the future.

County Broadband

County Broadband would like to help by providing a full fibre connection to each home. Swanton Abbott, along with several other villages, has been identified as a candidate for Ultrafast Broadband. The installation would take place in around 12-18 months and at this stage County Broadband simply needs to know the level of interest, and there is no commitment to proceed.
