Fressingfield Local History and Archive Group has published four photos from the 20th Century, of individuals who served the local community in one way or another. This is the first release of photos that will be linked to particular themes. They can be viewed on this sub-page of the group's main page.
Amongst the many changes to Suffolk Police has been the setting up of local policing teams. These are called safer neighbourhood teams or SNTs for short. For Fressingfield and the surrounding area, the SNT is based in Eye. The team has put out a newsletter which tells us about the things it has been doing in recent weeks.
The newsletter has some information about power tool thefts. For advice about preventing thefts of power tools, have a look at the team's latest leaflet.
PS In case you're wondering, ASB stands for anti-social behaviour. (I think!)
A whole new section has been added to the parish church pages about the restoration of the Father Willis Organ.
Not only will you find out what events are planned in December and beyond to raise funds for this exciting project, but there is also a report and photos about the restoration work and how the money has been raised to pay for it.
Accompanying this information is a new article about the history of the church, illustrated with some wonderful photos.
Users of the service include the elderly, young people, community groups, the rurally isolated and those with impaired mobility. Our door to door dial-a-ride service helps people to carry out important tasks such as attend medical appointments, go shopping, pay bills, participate in social events and visit friends and family.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer/trustee or both and supporting us we would love to hear from you.

Dates have been set for the annual series of 'flu immunisation clinics. Full details are in this flyer.

We say a big thank you to Lee and Sam Annison who have served us wonderfully for 19 years at the Mace Shop here in Fressingfield. New horizons lay before them and we wish them well and hope they keep in contact with them. Also a big thank you to all the staff who over many years have been so friendly, cheerful and helpful.
A warm welcome to Roger and Clare Keen who are the new owners of the Fressingfield shop, we offer them and their four children our very best wishes for their future with us.
