The news will be sent out weekly on a Saturday morning to anyone who subscribes on the Stonham web site. See on the right hand column.

People can now post news to the web site, as long as I have registered your email.

Village Fete Saturday 12th September 1pm-4pm

On Saturday 12th September between 12pm and 4pm, we will be holding a village fete at the recreation ground in order to raise money for the play area. We would love for you to join us and take part in this fun day for all ages with activities including zorbing, bouncy castles, face painting, toddler activities, traditional games, lucky dip, raffle and much more. There will also be various food/drinks stalls including a BBQ, bar and tuck shop. Save the date in your diaries and we really hope to see you there!

Village Hall refurbishment update

Thanks to everyone who voted for us in the Jewsons grants application. Unfortunately we heard last week that we were unsuccessful; which was a huge shame but as you saw, there were so many worthwhile projects applying for the support. We haven’t given up though and we are beavering away applying for more grants. More news to follow….

Thank you to everyone who completed our survey. Once the information has been pulled together, it will be posted on this site. A special thanks to the people who have offered to help either with the project, or with groups once the refurbishment is finished. We have saved your names and will be in touch!!
