The Hadleigh Thrift Shop is 20 years old! ‘Helping Us help Hadleigh’ has been The Hadleigh Thrift Shop’s philosophy since it started; 20 years and this motto is as vibrant as ever. Barbara Boyd and her team would very much like all its supporters, groups and partners to come to the celebratory Birthday Party on Saturday 10th August (10am to 2 pm). This provides an opportunity to share memories of successes over the two decades (and perhaps some of the challenges!). In August 1999, Barbara Boyd (then a newcomer to Hadleigh) opened the Thrift Shop in the High Street and was overwhelmed with how the Town opened its heart to her. Over the years, well over 30 people have been highly committed, valuable volunteers at the shop, which quickly became a hub for meeting and sharing conversations as well as fund-raising for causes important to Hadleigh. With so many organisations supported it is hard to pick out highlights but worth mentioning is the Thrift Shop helping save the Day Centre at Magdalen House and its on-going support. The move of the Shop to the current premises four years ago helped grow the support that both donors and volunteers could make. Barbara says, “Our volunteers are a vital to our work - without them we wouldn’t exist. By the same token we’d be nothing without the donors and customers. Many, many thanks go to this wonderful community of Hadleigh. We have a series of activities over the day to say thank you: Boudicca Border Morris, The Summer Smarties Challenge, Balloon Launch, Face Paints, Cakes, Barbara’s Banter, HFT’s History Photoslide and The infamous Mario Gellatti’s Special Ice-Cream demonstrations”. So, come and join Hadleigh Thrift Shop’s party on 10th August to raise a glass to at least another 20 years of The Thrift Shop.

What’s been happening at Nevelli? Here at Nevelli Designer Home Heating & Interiors we welcome the challenge of turning a vision into reality, helping our clients to design a unique concept that works just for them. We can help with all your Home Heating requirements, create an entirely bespoke bathroom, kitchen or living space or simply assist to install a stunning focal point to feature in one of your rooms. Sprotts Farm - Polstead, Suffolk Recently we have been involved in the exciting design and refurbishment of four stunning and unique holiday letts situated in the beautiful Suffolk countryside. Each property has been developed into a stylish and functional living space. The design flows flawlessly between each property yet is tailored to accommodate the space available. The scope of works ranged from the installation of bathrooms and kitchens, to the complete decoration of the living spaces and bedrooms. The exteriors of the properties have not been overlooked either and the team have undertaken all the repair works and decoration. These holiday letts now match their idyllic surroundings with a fresh new look. Alice Thorogood of Sprotts Farm, recently remarked; ‘Working with Nevelli has been a fun and productive experience. Right from the outset Luke and his team grasped the concept of my project and brought great ideas, professionalism, fresh design and ultimately a delivery that was on time and within my budget. The trades that Luke bought together were excellent on site, always on time, always tidy and with a great attention to detail. Each trade took ownership of their part of the project and came with a wealth of experience and ideas of the their own. Throughout the project Nevelli kept me updated and were always open to change. Charlotte was exceptional, on the end of the phone whenever I needed to talk an idea though. She was also central to developing the overall design of the project. I highly recommend Nevelli and look forward to working with them in the future’. 12 High Street, Hadleigh, Suffolk, IP7 5AP Tel 01473 828914

Work to build a new swimming pool at Hadleigh Pool and Leisure Centre is set to begin at the end of this month. Babergh District Council is investing £2.4m, with £200,000 of funds provided by Hadleigh Town Council and a Sports England grant (£150k), to build a new swimming pool at Hadleigh Pool and Leisure Centre which will replace the existing pool once complete. Local firm, Rose Builders has been appointed to carry out the works which are expected to begin late July. The existing pool will remain open during construction. Hadleigh Pool & Leisure’s other facilities including the gym, group exercise classes and the community and social rooms will also be open and unaffected. The new pool is expected to be opened to the public in late May 2020. The existing pool will then be demolished, and the area will then be relandscaped into park land, resulting in no net loss of open space. The works will include; New pool with five 25 metre lanes, Disabled access to the pool via easy access steps and handrail or via lift, Changing Places toilet and shower facility, Sauna, Spectator seating & Access through to the existing changing facilities, refurbished in 2010. A local artist has been invited to create a design for the brise soleil which will be located at the front of the new pool. Tracey Loynds, Development Director for Abbeycroft Leisure, said: “This is a huge investment for Abbeycroft Leisure and Hadleigh, and builds on the work which has already begun to develop the Kingfisher Leisure Centre in Sudbury. The new pool, sauna and facilities will go a long way to supporting our community to get more active and relax too. Inspiring a healthier you. This modern facility will improve the customer experience for those swimming and spectating. Our non-user research suggests that those put off by the ageing facilities will return to the pool, which is great news for everyone.” Cllr Derek Davis, Babergh District Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities, said: “We’re excited to start work on a new pool for the people of Hadleigh. This will allow us to offer up to date and modern facilities while also providing new community facilities such as the Changing Places toilet and shower. We recognise that to support our residents to remain healthy and active, we need to be investing in and improving our leisure facilities and infrastructure. This work takes an important step towards achieving the aims set out in our Leisure, Sport & Physical Activity Strategy.” Cllr Steve Allman, Hadleigh Town Council’s Mayor, said: “We’re very fortunate to have our own public swimming pool in Hadleigh and I’m delighted with the plans to invest in its future by creating a brand new pool. The designs look fantastic and Hadleigh Town Council is pleased to have contributed funds towards this important community facility, which will have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of the whole community for years to come.” Steve Rose, Managing Director of Rose Builders, said: “We are delighted to play a part in providing this wonderful facility for Hadleigh and the wider Babergh district. Being local to the Suffolk area, our team has in depth knowledge of the town which is important to us when working on community projects. We look forward to the challenge that a new pool brings and are confident that the facility will be enjoyed by many for years to come.” Temporary closures of the footpath between Tayler Road and Stonehouse Road/George Street during the works will be kept to a minimum.

Bildeston Primary School Sport at Bildeston Primary We have been very busy with sporting events this month. We entered a year 3/4 and a year 5/6 team in the Elmsett Small Schools Football tournament and also went to the U11 Multi Skills event at Hadleigh High School. Other sporting events included the U11 cricket tournament at Hadleigh Cricket Club and we attended the U9 & U11 Quad kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festivals. Brazil was our chosen country for the parade as this is featured in our curriculum at the moment. Our U9 children attended a Dodgeball final this week held at the athletics arena in Bury St Edmunds. Our A team came second and for both teams there were many comments about their sportsmanship and attitude. Chance to Shine The Chance2Shine cricket team are visiting us weekly coaching our Year 3 & 4 children to improve their cricketing skills! Able Maths Two of our pupils were fortunate enough to be able to attend an able maths day at Chilton Community Primary School on Wednesday 19 June. During the workshop pupils were encouraged to work as investigators working together to solve interesting and meaningful problems. Father Day Lunches Our Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day lunches were held on Wednesday 20th & 21st June and were once again very successful! Over 180 meals were served across the two days and we would like to say a special thank you to our hardworking kitchen staff, and to our parents, who always help to support them. James Bond Day Our Year 5 children attended a James Bond day at Hadleigh High School where they conducted a series of investigations around the school in various departments, including Science Music and English, to determine what happened to James Bond!! The Goose Who Flew As part of the Doorstep Arts theatre programme, our KS1 children were lucky to be able to watch a performance of 'The Goose Who Flew' by leading children's theatre company, Half Moon Theatre.

Vertigo, also known as Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) causes brief episodes of mild to intense dizziness. BPPV is usually triggered by specific changes in the position of your head. This might occur when you tip your head up or down, when you lie down, or when you turn over or sit up in bed. Symptoms may include; dizziness, vomiting, loss of balance, room spinning sensations, nausea, and stiffness of the neck. BPPV is often associated with a minor to severe blow to your head. Less common causes of BPPV include disorders that damage your inner ear or, rarely, damage that occurs during ear surgery or during prolonged positioning on your back. BPPV also has been associated with migraines. Vertigo occurs most often in people age 50 and older but can occur at any age. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is also more common in women than in men. At Hadleigh Physio we assess and treat vertigo with specific evidence-based techniques shown to reduce and stop the symptoms. Please call the practice to book an appointment with James at Sudbury or Hadleigh. “Vertigo ear imbalance known as (BPPV) is AWFUL…… I have suffered it for years, living in fear of when it would appear again! Not anymore... since I visited James at Hadleigh Physio he has cured it as quickly as it came on. He listens to you and ascertains quite quickly how best to treat you and puts you at ease. James then explains very clearly what movement he is going to do to start realigning your ear balance. He warns you it is not very pleasant but in comparison to how you are currently feeling it’s worth every single minute to stop it... and with James you know you are in confident, safe hands. I saw James 3 times to repeat the Physio alongside some treatment to help my neck because I had kept my neck still for so long in order to stop myself from being dizzy and falling over. Thank you, James. I recommend anyone who has the first signs of vertigo to go see you ASAP.” – JM (happy client). Hadleigh Physiotherapy Ltd.

Come And Sing With Hadleigh Choral Society – Open Rehearsal! Hadleigh Choral Society is a Choir of about 90 enthusiastic voices who love performing great choral works in traditional form, accompanied by a full orchestra and with young professional soloists. This autumn we will be presenting Mendelssohn’s Elijah in St Mary’s Church on Saturday 23 November. To do justice to this great Oratorio we would like extra singers to join us, so we are planning an OPEN REHEARSAL AFTERNOON on Saturday 7 September in the Ansell Centre in Hadleigh, beginning at 2.15pm. If you’ve been a singer in the past and would like to experience the joy of singing again, or if you sing in another choir and would like to join us for a ‘one-off’ season, or if you’ve heard us perform and would like to ‘give it a go’ come along on the 7th and try us out! Some ability to read music is preferable, but we are an un-auditioned choir and commitment and practise are as important to our performance as technical ability! We will explore the Work through listening to CDs, some historical background, and plenty of lusty singing of the amazing choruses for which Elijah is famous. The rehearsal will be led by our musical director, Chris Phelps. The session is completely free and we will break for tea and cake half-way through the afternoon. The new term for Hadleigh Choral Society starts on Tuesday 3 September at 7.30 pm in the Ansell Centre. Everyone is welcome and if you need more information please ring Liz on 01473823791 or email

James Cartlidge writes CE






Like many readers of this column I was very concerned when I heard that a number of bus routes in South Suffolk would lose their subsidy, potentially threatening their viability. As such, as soon as possible after hearing the news I met with officials from Suffolk County Council to highlight the extent to which my constituents will be affected by these changes. A number of the parish councils, and local residents, have already written to me to set out their concerns. I do sympathise, given that we are often talking about a very rare local service and one serving remote and potentially more vulnerable constituents. This is also happening at a time when school bus services are being reconfigured in ways that have plainly presented significant challenges to many parents. Having said all that, we cannot ignore the fact that some local bus services are very far from being economic. I have spent time with Cllr Mary Evans, Suffolk’s cabinet member for transport, going through the detail of specific routes and their long-term viability. Some services that are threatened receive subsidies as high as £25 per ticket and I am not a supporter of largely empty diesel double-deckers driving around the countryside at taxpayers’ expense. So, what can we do? On some of these routes, where the subsidy is not enormous, the bus service providers will be encouraged to run the route without Council funding. On the less popular routes, it may be that community transport providers, or taxi-buses, could take over the service on a commercial basis. Fundamentally, I am keen to see these routes maintained where possible and so want to use this opportunity to look at potential innovation. I have already organised a meeting of local taxi firms with SCC transport officials to explore how they could set up as taxi-bus operators, and will also be engaging with community transport providers. Finally, I will be encouraging all operators to secure the Government funding available to upgrade their buses and taxis to electric vehicles. With some forward-thinking it may be possible to provide more versatile, financially sustainable and environmentally-friendly services.

Howzat.....? This summer brings the Ashes Test series with England playing Australia, T20 games and a successful World Cup for England. As long as the sunshines and the rain stays away, there are plenty of matches to keep all cricket fans busy. Whether you are a test match special fan, or prefer to follow the games live or on the television, spare a thought for the players and the physical toll it takes on their bodies. Here at Hadleigh and Sudbury osteopaths we treat all sorts of cricketers, both male and female. We see junior and senior club and county players and even an international player, as well as enthusiastic amateurs (some of whom have racked up their best score several seasons ago!). Perhaps the most common cricketing injuries we see are shoulder problems, such as rotator cuff tears and sprains, where any of the four muscles that stabilise the shoulder can be involved. These injuries can affect both batsmen and bowlers. We also see a lot of ankle sprains, as like knees, the ankles an be injured as a result of jumping or sprinting, particularly if there is a sudden change in direction. Fielders who repetitively throw in can be at risk of injury to their elbows, either on the inside aspect of the joint where the flexor tendons attach to the bone, or on the outside where the extensor muscles attach. Low back injuries are also common, especially in the promising players who may play for several teams, and spend a lot of time in the nets. The forces going through the lumbar spine and sacroiliac joints can be quite substantial, when you consider that the ball is released with enough power to enable it to travel at up to160 km/hour. The forces going through the lumbar spine are significant enough to cause vertebral fractures in up to 15% of elite fast bowlers. Then there are the poor wicket keepers’ hips and knees to consider.... We can help to address problems in any of these areas, (whether you are a cricketer or not,) as well as giving exercises and advice about injury prevention and rehabilitation. Hadleigh Osteopaths have been established for over 25 years and specialise in the treatment of all joint and muscle conditions, including back pain, sciatica and sports injuries, as well as providing acupuncture (Sudbury branch only) with fully trained practitioners.

Even if you never open them, once you leave a pharmacy your medicines cannot be recycled or used by anyone else. This means that any you return are destroyed. Before heading to the pharmacy, take a look in your medicine cabinet to see what you actually need. You may have ordered extra on a repeat prescription last time and have forgotten. If your GP prescribes medication for you, make sure you are taking it correctly. Unused or misused medications such as antibiotics can lead to worsening health conditions and more treatments. By doing your part and only ordering what you need you are helping to reduce the cost of wasted medicines, which means these savings could be put towards other health services. Only order the medicines that you need • When re-ordering your medication, please allow 2 working days for your prescription to be processed before you come to collect or expect delivery. Don’t run out by leaving it too late! • Please let your GP know if you’ve stopped taking any of your medicines • Check what medicines you still have at home before re-ordering • Discuss your medication with your GP or Pharmacist on a regular basis • Think carefully before ticking all the boxes on your repeat prescription forms and only tick those that you really need. If you don’t need the medicine, please don’t order it • If you need to go into hospital, please remember to take all your medicines with you in a clearly marked bag • Please also remember that your medicines are prescribed only for you. It’s not safe to share them with anyone else Remember that unused medicines cannot be recycled • Even if you never open them, once medicines have left the Pharmacy, they cannot be recycled or used by anyone else. • Before you leave the Pharmacy, check that you have been given the medication you require. • Please return all unused or out of date medicines to your Pharmacy for safe disposal • NEVER dispose of your unused or unwanted medicines down the toilet Unused medicines are a safety risk • If your medicines change – return your old medicines to the Pharmacy to avoid mixing them up with your new medicines • Don’t stockpile medication – it is a safety risk for children and others who might take them • Store medicines in an appropriate place out of reach of children Wasted medicines waste money Unused prescription medicines cost the NHS across the UK over £300 million every year.

Sudbury MD Named Young Business Person of the Year

Caribbean Blinds, established in 1987, are the UK’s leading family owned designer, manufacturer and installer of luxury external shading systems. From stylish patio awnings that provide instant shade and shelter, to innovative external blinds that keep buildings cool and award winning louvered roofs (Outdoor Living PodTM) that enable year round use of outdoor spaces, Caribbean Blinds have the perfect external shading system for every application, requirement and budget. Stuart Dantzic took the reins of the Suffolk based company started by his parents, along with his brother Brad, from 1st January 2017, having both been involved in the business for well over a decade. With an in depth understanding of the industry and opportunities it presented, Stuart had a clear vision for the future and how to grow the company which involved implementing strategic investment in both machinery and personnel development to enhance exacting quality and efficiency, along with a clever digital and in print marketing strategy to increase brand and product awareness. By the end of 2018, the company had seen extraordinary growth of more than 60%, with the company expected to more than double its turnover by the end of this year. Stuart is now looking to the future with plans to extend their production facility by almost 40%, to facilitate further growth and ambitious plans to quadruple the size of the company over the next five years. At the recent Suffolk Business awards which brings together the regions most innovative, imaginative and inspiring firms, Stuart won the prestigious title of “Young Business Person of the Year”, acknowledged for his forward thinking, dynamic approach along with passion and drive, that has seen his company achieve staggering growth. Stuart comments “it’s a great accolade to receive the crown of Young Business Person of the Year, however, none of this would have been possible without my brother, Brad, who manages all operations of the company on a day to day basis and the amazing team we have who every day design, manufacture and install top quality external shading systems, that stand the test of time, with quality and attention to detail at the forefront of everything they do. Despite our significant growth, the company’s foundations remain the same as when my parents founded the company; to provide innovative external shading systems that deliver genuine lifestyle enhancing benefits, coupled with premium quality, stylish design, exacting service, value for money and above all else expert knowledge and advice to enable clients to make an informed decision”.

It’s important that children are given the opportunity to get active over the summer holidays and what better way to cool off from the summer heat than taking a dip in the pool. I hope the younger members of our community take this opportunity to have some fun while remaining active and healthy too.” Cllr Julie Flatman, Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing for Mid Suffolk District Council, said: “Swimming is great way for youngsters to unwind after the school term finishes, so it’s great that we’re able to give them the opportunity to swim for free at one of our two Everyone Active swimming pools in Mid Suffolk. Not only does this help to keep children in the district active over the holidays, but also enables families to swim together with the benefit of saving money too.” Tracey Loynds, Development Director at Abbeycroft Leisure, said: “We’re delighted to support Babergh with the free swimming initiatives, which encourages young people to be more active.

‘The Miss Lesley’s School of Performing Arts Story’ With over 35 years of experience as both a professional performer and qualified teacher Miss Lesley has brought her own style of teaching performing arts to rural Suffolk. Her first school opened in Bildeston in May 2011, and her second in Boxford in May 2013, and the schools have gone from strength to strength with many talented students already working in the performing arts industry. Lesley started her theatrical training at the age of just 4 and at 11 years old won a scholarship to attend 'The Italia Conti Stage School' in London, where she trained in all aspects of musical theatre till she was 18 and graduated as a qualified teacher in modern dance and tap, as well as gaining a diploma in Performing Arts. She was trained by the best teachers in ballet, tap, singing, drama and musical theatre. During her successful ‘show business’ career as an actress, dancer and TV presenter, Lesley taught at the main 'Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts' in London and also ran several of her own associate Italia Conti part time schools too, and this is where her love of teaching began! She moved to Suffolk in 2009 and is now very proud to run two successful branches of her school, along with her fantastic professional team of teachers, who are also fully qualified with vast knowledge and experience of Performing Arts and have had successful professional careers in ‘show business’ working in West End Shows, TV and touring Theatre Shows. MLSPA classes are taught in a friendly and enjoyable environment whilst giving students a chance to get an all round training, gain confidence through dance and musical theatre but most of all to have FUN! Giving a child the gift of confidence is extremely rewarding and even if they never want to step foot on a stage, the foundation of confidence building will stay with them for whatever path they choose in life! Miss Lesley’s School of Performing Arts has classes for: 3-5yrs, 5-7yrs, 79yrs, 10-12yrs, 13+ and Adults too! The “triple threat” classes offer an ‘all round’ training of dance, singing, musical theatre and tap dancing classes, Drama clubs, LAMDA lessons and Private singing coaching too. Classes are held during school term time on Monday & Tuesday evenings at Chamberlin Hall Bildeston, and on Saturdays at Boxford Primary School, Boxford. Adult dance/fit performance classes are also taught at Chamberlin Hall, Bildeston. If you require any further information or a registration form for the new term commencing in September please email ASAP as places are limited!! Come in and join the fun at MLSPA!

Hadleigh & District Garden Club Monday July 8th 2019: Do you remember being at primary school doing music and movement? I was reminded of this at our July meeting when Karen Kenny got some of us flapping our arms like butterfly wings, while others were being tomatoes wafting their chemicals to protect a group of cabbages! Her very entertaining and knowledgeable talk was all about companion planting a traditional and organic way to control pests. There was a great deal of scientific information packed into the session, and I'll just highlight some which would be easy for everyone to adopt. Grow tomatoes in with brassicas to deter cabbage white butterflies, plant tagetes minuta - their roots have a chemical which seeks out ground elder, tansy discourages ants and nasturtiums have a high nectar content which attracts blackfly. We know that it is important to attract pollinators to the garden, hoverflies, lacewings, ladybirds and blue tits all eat aphids, plants like nettles and poached egg plant, sweet peas, lemon balm and buddleia are all good for attracting these creatures. Try also find a way of providing water in the garden, even in a small way for the same reason, and hopefully, you will encourage a little army of garden helpers! So this morning when I found whitefly on one of my pepper plants in the greenhouse, instead of a quick spray with a soapy solution I have moved it outside hoping that when I look again something will have dealt with them...........! It was nice also to welcome some new visitors to the club this month, and we hope we will see them again soon. The plant stall was heaving with bargains, most of which had disappeared by the end of the evening, and congratulations to our chairman Dave for winning the rose competition! Monday August 13th 2019: This month our speaker will be Dan Wheals who is coming to talk about growing and using medicinal herbs for health - a subject high on the agenda at the moment. The meeting starts at 7.30pm in Hadleigh Town Hall. The entrance is ÂŁ4 for visitors and ÂŁ2 for members to include refreshments, there will be a raffle and plants for sale. The competiton for August is 'a small plate of soft fruit', new members and visitors are always welcome, we look forward to seeing you there. Contact us at

The Charity chosen by the Club this year was The Motor Neurone Disease Association. Chris the Chairman is shown in the picture presenting a cheque for ÂŁ500.00 to Andrew Diss, who was accompanied by his daughter Amy and son Adam. Andrew gave a short talk about the sad and heartbreaking time they had when his wife Diane was diagnosed with MND and the support they received from MNDA. He thanked the club. Chris then introduced and welcomed our Demonstrator for the night, Lionel Clarke from Braintree. His title was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Swan Songâ&#x20AC;?. As the chairman of Eastern England, he is a demonstrator of great experience and it showed in his lovely flowers and great knowledge of garden plants and materials. He is now winding down to retire from demonstrating and will then just enjoy arranging and judging flowers. We wish you all the best Lionel.

Down to Earth ...with Dave Our visit to Chelsworth open gardens was, as usual, a very enjoyable day, this is surely one of the most attractive little villages in Suffolk. There were twenty six gardens open this year which is the most ever. Luckily the gardens are quite near to each other so we did manage to visit most of them but returned home rather weary. No two years are the same on the allotment, last year the onions were the best ever but this year they have been very poor. Yet, on neighbouring plots, there are rows of prize winning onions, so it can't be blamed on the weather. The garlic planted right next to them have done really well and we have enough to last us right through the winter. There has been plenty of soft fruit this year with gooseberry fool and raspberry jam just some of the delicious items coming out of the kitchen, alas the jam has too much sugar in it for me. Now is a good time to give any hedges a bit of a trim as they can begin to look a little untidy. On a recent visit to a friend's garden we much admired an hydrangea called 'Annabelle', this has a most delicate creamy white flower. No sooner had we shown an interest than out came the secateurs, some non flowering shoots were found and snipped off. These were promptly taken home, trimmed to a couple of inches, placed in small pots with some gritty compost, watered and covered over. With luck we shall have some new plants of our own to go with the more common pink ones that we have. The same can be done at this time of year with fuchsias, pelargoniums, salvias etc. The sweet pea flowers must be picked daily or else they will set seed, thinking that their work is done. If the weather is dry it pays to raise the height of the mower blades a little, any mowings should be left on the grass as a mulch, over time they will be absorbed into the lawn, this will improve the quality of the grass and, of course, you don't have the problem of disposing of the cuttings. If you get any worm casts on the lawn just brush them about with a broom, if you have the patience these worm casts are excellent potting compost, as are mole hills. Incidentally don't waste precious water on the lawn , it may go brown in the sun but it will soon green up. Keep dead heading every day if possible, this helps keep the borders tidy, prevents the plants wasting energy producing seed and encourages them to flower again. Try to spend ten minutes a day doing this, it is surprising what you see when going round the garden with the secateurs and a little pot. That's all for this time, Dave

Gotelee News It was great to see so many of our clients and friends at the Hadleigh Show in May. Hopefully the sunflowers are doing well in gardens around the town - #growwithgotelee. The team are pleased to continue their support in the community, particularly in relation to the Porch Project and Hadleigh on Show. Gotelee has been an ever present feature in Hadleigh for over 80 years. Nested in Church Street we provide an excellent service for families and businesses. What perhaps might not be so Natasha Price commonly known is that we help people in very difficult circumstances as leading regional lawyers in personal injury and medical negligence cases. Personal injury partner James Davies, who lives in East Bergholt, works between the Ipswich and Hadleigh offices and undertakes all types of cases but has a specialism in asbestos related disease claims and serious injury cases. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I passionately believe in helping people who have had the misfortune to experience accidents that have changed their lives. It is rewarding to be able to help local people with their injury claims and to make a difference for them in their lives following an accident. I enjoy the varied nature of the work and I learn so much from my clientsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; experiences.â&#x20AC;? James Davies Gotelee continues to find ways to innovate and provide the range of services needed by the communities we operate in. More importantly, we strive to deliver our services in an efficient and respectful manner, whether supporting a family, a private individual or a business owner. I am always keen to hear from readers of the Community News, particularly those who run businesses locally to discuss how the lawyers at Gotelee can support them in the future. In the meantime, I am pleased to confirm that the Hadleigh office continues to thrive and grow. I am sure you will welcome, Samuel Flower, our new trainee working with Kay Baker and Sally Pryke as well as Natasha Price who joins Pat Smith and Claire Bartram in the conveyancing team. In the meantime, enjoy the summer holidays with Samuel Flower your loved ones. Beth Clarke - Head of Business Development 01473 211121

Ebony’s Blog Life at The Shelley Centre Did I mention we’d been going 30 years here at Shelley? The Chairman and Trustees decided to have a party (am I surprised?) to celebrate this milestone, and tried to invite as many past supporters and workers as could be found. Two of our founder members, Mike and Jane Crowe, very kindly offered their garden for the venue at the end of term. The rain held off, the garden looked amazing, and the food and drink flowed. For once, I’m told, this was not a fundraiser! No raffle, no hassle, just a wonderful opportunity to come together and enjoy themselves for the price of a ticket. Kizzy and Sarah played beautiful music to enhance the atmosphere. As usual the relaxed ambience wasn’t achieved without a massive amount of work by a very few people, all of whom deserve a huge round of applause. The real ‘piece de la resistance’ was the system of ramps created especially for our wheel chair users to access the garden up two flights of steps. My photos show Margaret inspecting the work before guests arrived, and then supervising their ascent! I wasn’t installed when the Centre first opened, and the site was quite bare when it all began. Scrapbook photos show how the place has evolved and settled in to the lovely venue it is now. I do sometimes wish I could get outside and see more than just the yard, then I realise how lucky I am to do the job I do with the riders who come to me. The live herd joins me in wishing all our readers a happy and drama free holiday, and here’s to the next 30 years! Telephone: 01473 824172

Mark Saberton in Menottiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Telephoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; The season is coming to a close but summer lovinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is still in the air. Gian Carlo Menottiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comic opera, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Telephoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is in town, featuring Sudburyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very own baritone Mark Saberton, fresh from Covent Garden, and the international coloratura soprano, Lisa Cassidy. The first half traverses the minefield of courtship, complemented by a second half of passion and love in the form of song and duets. Mark grew up in Great Waldingfield, attending Thomas Gainsborough School and now returns to the Quay Theatre following his popular 2014 and 2017 appearances. He has performed at The Royal Opera House, English National Opera, Opera North and Scottish Opera. When not away on tour, he lives and teaches singing in Sudbury. Lisa Cassidy has gained a reputation for both the singular beauty of her voice and her striking theatrical presence. She has recently been developing and performing contemporary classical works in Spain with Vertixe Sonora Ensemble. Acclaimed pianist Matthew McCombie accompanies again after making a great impression in the concert here two years ago. As well as frequent performances in the United Kingdom with conductors such as Barry Wordsworth and Ronald Corp he travels round the world performing for the Cunard Line and P&O Cruises. Menottiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Telephoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;amour Ă troisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is an entertaining gem of operatic comedy, presenting an attempted marriage proposal alongside endless phone interruptions (how very modern!). Ben loves Lucy or, should we call her, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Rockabilly Lucyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, with her total adoration of 1950s style? Will his gift soften her heart, and encourage her to accept his hand in marriage, or remove her from his arms forever? The first performance was in 1947 but this production has a more contemporary look at the story. As well as the short one act opera there will be a selection of songs and duets from the American and English classical song repertoire, featuring composers including Gerald Finzi, Roger Quilter, Peter Warlock, Samuel Barber and Roderick Williams. These trace the journey of myriad conversations and musings on that delightful tyrant, Love. Menottiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Telephone is on at the Quay Theatre on 24th August at 7.30pm and tickets are available now from the Quay Theatre Box Office on 01787374745 or online at

The Brett Valley Collective The Brett Valley Collective were overjoyed recently to finally share their self penned show â&#x20AC;&#x153;Office Clippings,â&#x20AC;? with the local community. The show, set in the fictitious Hadleigh Paperclip Company, was the culmination of a number of social get togethers, collaborative writing and improvisation workshops. Both nights at Layham Village Hall were sold out and audience members were encouraging and even a bit raucous! (Yes, we mean you Julie Philips!). The performance raised 700.00 for Suffolk Artlink, who are a participatory arts charity set up to support marginalised groups to have access to creativity in various forms. The Collective are hugely grateful to everyone who supported the event in every way by donating raffle prizes, giving their time, making delicious cakes and by supporting the show itself. Special thanks to Barbara and the team at The Thrift Shop for box office duties and to Stuart Service for being our biggest champion. It was a real team effort and the collective are hugely encouraged by the all the lovely feedback they received. Using drama and creativity to fundraise has been a hugely positive experience Watch this space for further events. The Brett Valley Collective ...raising funds and connecting communities through collaboration and creativity.

Sudbury’s First Silk Festival in September 2019 Will Celebrate The Town’s Rich History As The UK’s Silk Capital Sudbury, a small market town in Suffolk, has a little known but rich history of textile weaving and has recently been coined the ’UK Capital of Silk’. Weaving there dates back to the 14th century where many people in the town and outlying villages including Lavenham were employed to spin, dye and weave woollen broadcloth. Silk weaving didn’t arrive until the 1770’s when master weavers moved out of Spitalfields to this area. Today there are still five working silk weaving companies in the town, the Gainsborough Weaving Company, Humphries Weaving Company, David Walters Fabrics, Stephen Walters & Sons and Vanners Silk Weavers, currently together they produce 95% of silk manufactured in the UK. This year for the first time, Sudbury is celebrating the amazing work of its silk weaving companies by staging its first Silk Festival on Saturday 7th September. There will be an exhibition-fair in St Peter’s Church with displays by the silk mills, the Warner Textile Archive, May Berkouwer, a textile conservator, Sudbury Ephemera Archive, Colchester Institute Department of Textiles will explore education pathways and student textile designers’ will show their work. Lavenham Guild of Weavers Spinners and Dyers will also be there and Sudbury Heritage Centre and Museum will open. As part of the festival an exhibition of 18th Century inspired costumes by Vivienne Westwood at Gainsborough’s House will also open on 7 September with free entry the house on the day. Silk Walks around the town and an Architectural Heritage Walk looking at Sudbury’s silk history will also be taking place. There is a series of specialist talks running alongside in the Assembly Room at the Town Hall. These include Gainsborough Silk Weaving Company revealing their processes of silk production, Liz Trenow speaking about her books The Silk Weaver and The Dressmaker of Drapers Lane and the history of her family Stephen Walters & Son that has been enveloped in silk since they first wove it in Spitalfields in 1720. Silk experts Mary Schoeser and Kate Wigley will give a silk handling talk, Silks from Spitalfields to East Anglia and finally there will be a talk about the work of Vivienne Westwood. Over this year there have been some film projects that will also be on show demonstrating other aspects of silk. Stories of Silk has involved local silk workers interviewed about their work in the industry by schoolchildren in Sudbury and Great Cornard. Another highlights the specialist work of the Humphries Weaving Company who have recently worked on a major textile restoration project for the Royal Brighton Pavilion and a further film by painter Ruth Philo and sound artist Stuart Bowditch that documents their project Fabric: Silk Road, building silk connections between Sudbury and China. The town is looking forward to sharing its rich history and welcoming visitors from both near and far. There will be something for everyone, from children to adults, local workers, textiles specialists, crafters and people who would simply like an interesting day out and to learn about the hidden gem that is the silk weaving industry of Sudbury.

Newton Ladies shake it all about

Players were literally shakinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; it all about prior to participating in the annual ladies captainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day event at Newton Green Golf Club. A devotee of the once dance craze The Macarena, captain Cate Fraser was surprised when vicecaptain Adrienne Hughes got Cate and the rest of her girls in shape by leading them in a practice session of hip thrusting moves. Once the music had died down on the first tee, former head teacher Cate toured the course in a buggy decorated to reflect her wide-ranging world travels.

Who would not love to live in such a property? Very spacious, set in rolling countryside, with a heated pool. The owners searched for years before finally buying their dream property. The renovations were carried out expertly. To offer a family a free holiday while they themselves were away was kind and generous. No doubt the owners relaxed in the knowledge their home was in safe hands. Imagine their thoughts as they returned home to find the oven left on; and the front door wide open. Clearly, the housesitting holiday makers were not as careful with the executive home as was hoped. The guests had actually left days before the owners returned. The guests were careless with all that had been entrusted to their care, and made light of the generosity shown them. I think that is often how we treat God. After all, He made this beautiful world that we so easily spoil and take for granted. Even worse, we can ignore the incredibly generous and selfless sacrifice Jesus completed for us by dying on the Cross. He chose to die not for Himself, but for us, in order to make it possible for us to be forgiven and free in this life and especially in the next. We just need to admit our need of Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing gift of forgiveness and eternal life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For God so loved the world, He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life.â&#x20AC;?

Lavenham Sinfonia Concert September 22nd at Lavenham Church The Lavenham Sinfonia just keeps getting better as anyone who heard the magnificent performance of Brahms 1St Symphony will tell you, the great horn call that opened the final movement is still echoing around the Church. The evening began with Weber’s sparkling overture to his final opera “Oberon” and was followed by Neilsen’s Flute Concerto composed in 1926. The concerto is unusual being in 2 quite short movements and prominently featuring a bass-trombone in the orchestra. This concerto has a challenging solo part for the flute and the soloist, Stefan Cunningham handled it expertly seemingly never taking a breath whilst playing the long solo parts. The concert concluded with the magisterial Brahms 1st Symphony. The Sinfonia’s final concert of the 2019 season is on 22 September at 19:00 in Lavenham Church when, by popular demand, it returns to once again to explore the Baroque era of music. This promises to be a spectacular occasion with the concert opening with Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No1. The Brandenburg’s remain amongst Bach’s most popular works and the Sinfonia has chosen to play the earlier version of the score which is one movement shorter than the normal edition. It will be followed Antonio Vivaldi’s Concerto for Strings in G minor RV156, a spirited work in 3 movements in the quasi venetian style. Bach returns to conclude the first part of the programme with E major Violin Concerto played by the soloist Rebecca Livermore. This concerto is one of 2 Violin concertos thought to have been composed in 1718 and Bach obviously liked the themes as they re-appear again in his later Harpsichord Concertos. Johann.Heinichen was a German baroque composer born in 1683 and was very influential in bringing the venetian style of music to Dresden. A prolific composer in his day, his music was rather forgotten until Reinhard Goebel and Musica Antiqua Koln in 1992 recorded several CD’s of his concertos and thereby increased his popularity His Orchestral Suite in G major S.205 that opens the second half is a really good example of his compositions as is in 6 short movements Ouverture, Air, Bourrée , Air, Rigaudon, Air-Viste. The concert concludes with Handel’s fantastic Music for the Royal Fireworks composed in 1749 for George 2nd’s firework display in Green Park to mark the end of the War of the Austrian Succession and the signing of the peace treaty at Aix-La-Chappelle. Originally scored for a large wind band with brass and kettledrums, Handel re-scored the work a month so or later to include a string section. It remains one of Handel’s popular and enduring pieces and, fittingly, brings the 2019 season to a close. Please do come along and enjoy some fine music playing and please also give some thought to becoming a patron (£75 per year) or a Friend (£35 per year) and support one of the few orchestra’s playing live music in Norfolk and Suffolk.

Lady Captain’s Day at Stoke International Travel was the theme that Diana Harris chose for her Captain’s Day last week at Stoke by Nayland GC and her Lady Members certainly rose to the occasion. They turned out to greet her arrival in her decorated buggy in a variety of outfits from Grass Skirts and Leis through Airport Ground Staff to Bears from Peru! A relaxed game of fourball stableford, best two scores to count, was played in glorious sunshine interrupted only by Pimms and snacks served at the half-way hut by Diana and her husband, David. The winning team of Sue Gregory, Debbie Howlett, Petra Byatt and Corinne Jackson took the Captain’s prize with a score of 87 points but win or lose everyone enjoyed a grand day including Diana herself!
