Hethersett has received praise from Prime Minister David Cameron for embracing the government’s Big Society initiative.

The village’s efforts to support sport, fitness, wellbeing and the environment have been praised in a letter from the Cabinet Office after villagers’ organised events throughout the year and for being named Norfolk Sports Village and Norfolk Champion of Champions in 2011 from the EDP and Active Norfolk. “I am pleased that residents have taken on the ideas behind the Big Society and are really making a difference to the community,” said Sarah Baker of the Cabinet Office’s social action team, who was contacted directly by David Cameron.
