The Villages

Alpington and Yelverton are located some 6 miles south east of the historic and fine city of Norwich. The villages are surrounded by farmland, with many public footpaths, and you will regularly meet walkers, cyclists, horse riders and see some agricultural activity. We’ve got a successful primary school, a beautiful and historic church, a village hall, and a good sized village pond attracting some varied wildlife.

The Parish Council

This website was developed initially by the Parish Council, but since March 2020 it has been further developed and run, on a voluntary basis, by the community and for the community. This realised the first part of the Parish Council’s plan: to put it into the community’s hands to take it forward.

We’re now working on realising the second part of their plan: to expand the pool of authors who create content on our news feed, meaning that the parish will then have a fully-fledged community website, truly representing all of our villages’ residents, organisations, businesses, and institutions.

The Parish Council would like to thank everybody for embracing and supporting the website over the past year. We’re lucky to live within a community that wants to engage with a project like this, and we hope it brings us even closer together.

Our Wildlife

There’s plenty to see in your garden or out for a walk. Let us know if you’ve seen anything that’s not on this list!

Collective Oil Buying Scheme

The village is a part of a wider oil purchasing scheme, where many people ordering at the same time can receive a better price. You join up as an individual, there is no membership fee, you choose when you want to buy and how much, and you will no longer need to shop around for the best price.
