Due to the adverse weather conditions, all primary and high schools in Lowestoft are closed today.


The only primary and high school open in the Lowestoft and Southwold is Reydon Primary School.

The following children’s centre are open according to Suffolk County Council: Ark, Kirkley, Riverside, Uplands and Reydon and Southwold.

Three pupil referral units are open: Harbour, First Base and Old Warren House.

Refuse collections and some street cleansing has been cancelled in Waveney today.

Residents are advised to still put bins out for collection and the council’s collection teams will try to collect them as soon as possible.

However this will now be Tuesday at the earliest and, given the backlog from Friday’s cancellation, may even be later in the week.

To enable teams to collect refuse/recycling as soon as possible, green waste collections will not take place this week.

A council spokesman said: “Once again, we would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by events beyond our control.”
