  • and the other within Mickfield (4-7 July by Meadow Cottage has Stonham 7, similar cabinet to the above).

Football Club Fun Day

Don’t forget our Fun Day at the Club tomorrow 10th June. The weather forecasters are usually better than their political counterparts – so bring the sun cream !!

Start 1.00pm. Ends with Scotland  v  England on the big screen in the Clubhouse at 5.00pm.

Village Hall refurbishment.

It has started!
The village hall has been handed over to the contractor, and D C Construction have moved on site today and  started on the Village hall refurbishment.
The hall and car park are out of bounds to anyone other than those involved in the building works (even if you are a key holder)!
Please respect this as construction sites are dangerous places.
Thank you! Bob Pratt

Bank Holiday weekend ‘thank you’

A MASSIVE THANK YOU, to the Fuller family, Josephine and all the team which were involved in the Bank Holiday weekend plant sale and refreshments, at the Village Hall. A superb total of £1,100 was raised for Church funds, fantastic! Sincere thanks go to everyone who supported this event.

Stonham Aspal Village Hall Refurbishment – update May 2017

The project cost is now confirmed at £185,000 and we have currently raised £152,000 from fundraising, grants and donations. The £152,000 will enable us to complete the new heating system, ventilation and insulation throughout the hall, and a new kitchen and ladies and gents toilets.

This work will commence at the beginning of June and the hall and car park will be closed from Tuesday 30th May to allow for the hall to be emptied. Due to the shortfall in funding we will continue to try and raise more funds in order to fund the decoration, some new windows and a new bar area in the hall. We ask for your support with this:

  • Please vote for ‘Stonham Aspal Village Hall’ at Stowmarket Tesco tokens vote – this will be open until 30/6/17 and may enable us to gain a further £3000.
  • Please vote for us at The Calor Gas Community Fund – you will have 10 votes and you will have to register with them so it will take a couple of minutes, but well worth it to be in for a chance of £5000 to pay for the cost of decorating the hall once the refurb is complete.
  • Please spread the word with family’s and friends, who will each get 10 votes. We have also set up a donations page at Just Giving and search ‘Stonham Aspal’ – any donations would be much appreciated.

We will keep you updated on timings, funding etc through notices on Facebook, village website and the village, church and school notice areas.
