The annual parish meeting (APM) was on Tuesday 20 April 2021. It was different from previous years!
This was a ‘Zoomed’ meeting. The full written reports from different groups and organisations in the parish are on the parish council website.
The meeting enabled different groups and organisations in the parish to explain what they have been doing in the last 12 months(!) and what plans they have for the future.
All the reports for the meeting can be found by following this link.
Grants to support parish groups and organisations.
The council has money set aside to support organisations and groups which have a local membership. It doesn’t matter if you are a well-established or just getting going. If you have a particular event or an idea to get off the ground, then you can apply for a grant from the parish council. This is using money raised through the precept.
Detailed guidance and an application form can be downloaded from this site. For more information and advice, contact the parish clerk. He will be able to talk through the scheme and explain how you can apply. Please see the Policies page for more information.
The council also uses some of its funds to support organisations based outside the parish whose services parishioners may call on. This year these are East Anglian Air Ambulance, the Citizen’s Advice Bureau and Borderhoppa.

Changes to Recycling
Important changes to Suffolk’s recycling
Make sure you’re up to speed with some important changes to the way we recycle in Suffolk.
Over the coming months the Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) in Gt Blakenham, where recycling collected from Suffolk households is sorted, will be undergoing a major refurbishment. This work follows a new contract for the operation of Suffolk’s countywide network of 11 Recycling Centres and will result in a state-of-the-art facility for Suffolk, with the latest mechanical and optical sorting equipment.
How does this affect me?
- During the renovation period, your recycling will be collected on your usual collection day
- Drink cartons (e.g. Tetra Pak) and metal pots, pans and trays will no longer be accepted in recycling bins, but can still be recycled at all 11 of Suffolk’s Recycling Centres

We are currently looking to co-opt three new members onto the Parish Council. If you are interested, please get in contact with the Parish Clerk, details can be found on the page “Councillors”.
