The Suffolk Local History Council runs a Recorders Scheme throughout Suffolk. We administer a network of volunteers to ensure that the ‘present’ is adequately recorded at local level for the future.
A Recorder will note significant happenings in their parish and collect their local parish magazines, leaflets, election pamphlets and newspaper cuttings. At the end of each year, they are asked to submit a short report summarising the activities of their parish. The reports are deposited at the Suffolk Record Office and available to future researchers together with the collected items.
If you are interested, please look at the Recorders Pack by visiting www.slhc.org.uk to acquaint yourself with the guidelines of the scheme. You do not need to be a historian; you do not need any qualifications other than an interest in your parish. In return you will receive a copy of the SLHC Newsletter and be invited to the annual conference specifically for Local Recorders. To volunteer to help in this important work, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
To mark the centenary of the 1918 Armistice, the Royal British Legion in Suffolk, are inviting local school children to lay poppies on the 1,332 Great War graves that lie in 248 cemeteries and churchyards across the county.
The event will take place on Thursday 8th November 2018, concluding with a nationwide Act of Remembrance at 11:00 AM.
The Lord Lieutenant has written to Suffolk schools informing them of this event and so the Suffolk Royal British Legion are currently looking for volunteers and supporters to help with this project.
The Parish Council have been asked to consider re-starting the Speed Watch Scheme in the village. The Police team that run the scheme have advised that we require a minimum of 6 volunteers before the Police will consider approving the scheme in the village. We therefore need some volunteers.
If you are interested in volunteering, or would like some further information, could you please contact the Parish Clerk - Lucinda Rogers:
