    We are looking for more Sidesmen, can you help us?

    St Mary & St Lambert, Stonham Aspal with Mickfield 

    The role of Sidemen is not difficult but their contribution to the life of the church is important. It enables Worship to proceed smoothly and ensures that all is ready for the clergy or lay person who is taking the service. Duties include unlocking and making sure the church is ready before the service, welcoming and handing out service books etc to the congregation on their arrival, to keep an eye out and welcome anyone who arrives late, to make sure that things are put away after the service and count the collection. You will also be asked if possible to be responsible for unlocking and locking church on the weekend that you are on duty.
    If you feel you would like to be part of the team of Sidesmen please let us know, it would be lovely to welcome some new faces.
    David Tydeman and Alex Pratt, Churchwardens.

    Sunday 3rd Feb 6.30pm, Stonham Aspal Church

    In some Churches it is during this service that Candles for the year are blessed, a symbol of Jesus Christ, the light of the world.

    Altar Flowers in Church

    St Mary & St Lambert, Stonham Aspal with Mickfield 

    There are two ways in which flowers and displays are put in Church.

    Altar Flowers
    The weekly rota is now available at the back of the Church. You will notice that this is done in two weeks sessions, please don’t let that put you off, it is not a central heated home so many flowers will keep for this length of time. Perhaps you have an Anniversary or birthday of a loved one when you would like to place flowers at the altar. Please put your name on the rota and I will make sure that you have all the details that you need. If you would like flowers to be put in church but are not able to do so and would prefer to give a donation, please contact me.
    Flowers at Festivals
    For festivals and special events each person has either a window or an area to put their arrangement. The Church festivals include, Easter, Harvest, Christmas and during the year the Church may be decorated for services such as a special Songs of Praise, Royal occasion etc.
    If there is anything that you would like to know about joining the team who decorates the Church for festivals or being on the weekly rota please do not hesitate to contact me on 01449711393 or alexjenkinson@btopenworld.com
    Many thanks Alex Pratt

    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.

     Seats can be reserved on receipts of £10 Ticket money, please contact me on alexjenkson@btopenworld.com,

    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.

    A140 and A1120 – Road Resurfacing and Reinstatment of the Road Markings– August 2018

    We will be carrying out road resurfacing and reinstatement of the road markings on the junction with A140 and A1120. This is necessary to stop further deterioration and improve the road surface.

    The extent of the closure will be;
    A140 – Between the roundabout with A14 up to Church Lane, Little Stonham
    A1120 – Junction with Church Road, Stowupland to junction with Scotts Hill and The Street, Stonham Aspal.

    The work is planned to be completed between 15th August 2018 – 21st August 2018. Work will be carried out overnight from around 8pm until 6am each night. Excluding the weekend. You may experience some noise disruption due to the nature of the equipment we use. We will do everything we can to minimise the disruption.

    The times and dates of works may change depending on the weather conditions. If they do change, we will let you know by updating the information signs on site.
    The road will be temporarily closed to through traffic for the duration of the works excluding the weekend. Pedestrian access to properties and businesses will be available. However vehicular access may be restricted even where off road parking is available. During the working times above, access will be controlled by staff on site. Please speak to one of our staff who will provide access as soon as it is safe to do so. Access for emergency services will be maintained at all times.

    During the period of the closure, please follow the signposted diversion route. If you want a detailed diversion please contact us. These temporary traffic management measures are required to allow the works to be carried out safely and in accordance with current health and safety guidelines. Please see the information over the page for more details of how access to your property will be affected by the works, as well as other frequently asked questions.
    If you have any other questions about the work, please call us on: 0345 606 6171.

    Yours faithfully
