Councillors in Norfolk may soon have to declare they are Freemasons
Mike Smith-Clare, Labour councillor for the Yarmouth Nelson and Southtown division, has motioned for it to be made a requirement for Mason councillors to declare their memberships.
The motion goes before Norfolk County Council on Monday, July 23.
A High Court Judge has dismissed a judicial bid to review a merger for two Great Yarmouth High Schools.
The case, launched by parent Amie Falconer, aimed to challenge in court a bid to merge Trafalgar College in Thamesfield Way with the Yarmouth Charter Academy on its Salisbury Road site.
Both schools are part of the Inspiration Trust which has a chain of schools in the region.
The merger will now continue as planned, with all new pupils starting at the current Charter Academy site at Salisbury Road in Great Yarmouth in September.
Existing Trafalgar pupils will remain at their current location at Thamesfield Way for the start of the new term while building work takes place to create an enlarged single school at Salisbury Road.
Take over deal is dropped between Beales and Palmers
Palmers was approached by department store operator Beales in May about a possible acquisition of its Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft stores.
The company, which has 21 department stores including in Beccles, Lowestoft and Diss, had promised that the Palmers name would live on should the deal to take over Palmers’ two remaining stores go through.
But on Monday Beales and parent company Portnard confirmed that the current uncertain state of the retail industry had led it to abandon its takeover plan.
