    VILLAGE HALL REFURBISHMENT

    Village Hall Refurbishment-update

    Over the year the refurbishment work has continued at the village hall. The old windows in the back room and kitchen have been replaced with similar to match the rest of the building. The kitchen and toilets are now fitted with roller binds and the back room and entrance have attractive curtains. Tables have been purchased and there is now a new storage area for these. The bar which was kindly donated from the former ‘Ten Bells’, has been renovated and looks brilliant in the back room. The volunteers who have continued to work on the Village Hall have enabled us to progress to the stage that it is at now, their time and effort is very much appreciated.

    Funding is now in place for new fascias, soffits and gutters and for the exterior to be painted, we hope that this will be happening very soon.  The next project to take place when funds are available is resurfacing the car park.

    or 01449 711393 specifying any dietary needs.

     Profits from social events at ‘Greenacre’ this year are all going to the Church repair fund. It is wonderful that the immediate repairs have now been completed but this still leaves many identified items from the Quinquennial report still to attend to in the future. As with any ancient building something else is always cropping up and the repair fund is now depleted.

    Your support in keeping this listed village building in good maintenance is appreciated enormously.

     The final Bruch of the year will take place on the 3rd November.

    Looking forward to welcoming friends old and new.

    Waste Collections running late because of bad weather

    Dustbin collections running late - Limited collections are taking place today, but only on clear, main roads. The majority of bins will be collected next week, starting with the areas missed on Tuesday and moving onto the rest of the week as we clear the backlog of bins.

    Recycling collections for Mid Suffolk will run 1 day later as the regular crews will complete these. Additional crews will pick up any outstanding refuse throughout the week.
