Minutes of Parish Council Meeting
The minutes of the meeting held on Thursday 6th September are available on the Minutes & Reports page.

The Somerleyton Community Association received a welcome boost on Tuesday (24th October 2017) when Tony Jones, on behalf of the Somerleyton Ukulele Strummers, presented Sandy Leonard with a cheque for £1,000. The money was raised by holding a musical event, organised by Sue and Will Bailey, at which various bands and a choir entertained. The proceeds will be used for much needed improvements to the village hall. 

Brick Kiln Tidy Sunday 1st October
10 volunteers assembled at the brick kiln to rake up the cut grass and generally tidy up to promote next year’s wild flowers and also to allow the outline of the ruins to be viewed.
