Tesco thinks North Walsham is in Stalham

The noticeboard outside Tesco

The noticeboard outside Tesco's in Stalham which gives details for North Walsham Town Council, rather than Stalham Town Council. Picture: SUBMITTED


A Tesco community noticeboard in Stalham tells residents “Your Council” is North Walsham - nine miles away.

Stalham has its own town council which meets once a month in the town hall, just a short walk from the noticeboard.

Fed-up members of Stalham Town Council first asked the supermarket to correct the mistake a year ago but nothing had been done, councillors heard at their meeting this week.

Clerk Susan Wellerd is to write again and ask for Stalham Town Council’s details to replace those of North Walsham.

The noticeboard, on a wall near the entrance to Tesco, gives North Walsham Town Council’s address, telephone number, and website information.


  • They probably use HUDL Maps

  • Far be it for me to ever suggest that the Evening News, that bastion of accuracy, would ever make a mistake but inline with your new theme of mocking people for simple administrative errors surely this story should be called "Tesco think Stalham is in North Walsham" not the other way around.

  • Maybe Tesco think their Stalham shop is in North Walsham - or wish that it were. That Stressco have yet to respond to the entreaties of the mighty Stalham Town Council tells you more about the Burghers of Stalham than it does about Stressco. First, fail to get a sign changed at Tesco. Next, fail to move into big-time property development on the old Rail Station site. Finally, fail to instigate the first Stalham International Scone, Chutney & Jam Festival. Special guest, Mr. Pastry (deceased).

  • Yawn...another stimulating, informative piece of Journalism from Archant reporters. My life is so much more complete knowing this.

  • Mr. Rationality, it looks like we are of a single mind! Which, at least, beats Stalham Town Council. By one. Our postings were as ships that passed in the night. Or something like that....
