The Parish Council wants the views of all residents about the village and how it could develop. A survey was posted through everyone's door with Six Sense, this month. The survey covers many aspects of village life and how it could develop over the next 10 years. It is your opportunity to have a say and have an influence.
Please complete it and return it to the village shop, or Garry Deeks, The Old Manse, Laxfield Road or Dave Wheeler 2 Post Mill Lane or any other Parish Councillor by April 14th, 2017.
If you want any additional copies of the survey, it can be downloaded here and then printed off.
Suffolk Highways will be carrying out road repairs along Top Road, Wingfield and New Street, Fressingfield between the junction with Top Road and Carpenters Yard, Fressingfield. This is necessary to improve the existing road surface and prepare for surface dressing taking place at a later date.
Suffolk Highways Department has provided guidance with details of the work, the diversion and a set of frequently asked question.
Parish councils have a responsibility to consider providing allotments if there is a local demand for them. There is an open meeting of the Fressingfield Community Gardeners on Monday 20 March to discuss whether there is a demand in Fressingfield. The guest speaker will be Karen Kenny, the President of the National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners.
Due to family commitments, Ben Symonds is standing down from his position as welfare officer of the branch. From now on any welfare issues should be addressed to Chrissie Kitchen on 01986 798764. Any person who has completed one week paid service in any of the armed forces or reserves, and their dependants qualify for Legion assistance in times of need. This includes those who were called up for compulsory National Service.
We cover a very large area, seven+ villages, and quite often we don't know who has and has not served in the military. If you know of any person who fits the conditions and is in need of assistance or even a friendly chat with one of our visitors, then let Chrissie or any Legion member know the
details and we will take it from there.
We are delighted to report that since our report in the February issue of Six Sense, the sum donated following the New Year’s Day Dog Walk has reached £2054!
