Schools have broken up, perfume and aftershave adverts are clogging up the TV schedules and many people have eaten half their weight in chocolate over the past week – Christmas is nearly upon us.
We’ve created a page on our website about Christmas and New Year opening times for our buildings and services. While most of our services will be closed on the weekends and bank holidays, some of our staff such as social workers, firefighters and potentially gritting teams, if needed, will be working throughout the festive period.
Our libraries will be closed from 5pm on Christmas Eve and will reopen on Tuesday, 29 December. Some of our museums will also be open between Christmas and New Year if you want a break from turkey sandwiches and board games.
We don’t organise roadside bin collections, these are done by Norfolk’s seven district councils, but remember your normal bin days may well change over Christmas and New Year. To find out when you need to drag your bin out over the next couple of weeks, click here.
Finally, don’t forget that the NHS is often under a lot of strain at this time of year so remember to get all your medications and repeat prescriptions to help keep you well and if you do need advice or medication, consider going to your local pharmacy in the first instance. There’s a list of Norfolk pharmacies that will be open on the bank holidays here.
Have a very happy, healthy Christmas everyone!
