“Great walk, great soup, thanks”

Local Elections
Elections for the Parish Council and for the new East Suffolk Council are scheduled for Thursday 2nd May. 7am to 10pm in Somerleyton Village Hall.
There were less candidates than vacancies for the Parish Council so all candidates are elected. See the notice here.
There are 4 candidates for the single vacancy for the East Suffolk Council and the details are here.

Over the February half term a band of volunteers cleared the village hall kitchen, removed all the old units, remade the exterior wall, installed replacement units and then moved everything back in.  A tremendous effort in such a short time.  Well done everyone!

Brick Kiln Tidy October 2018
Every year we cut down this year’s growth and remove the cuttings from the site as this maintains an environment which encourages the wild flowers.  This year 11 volunteers had an enjoyable hour or so in the sunshine.
