The Mayor writes... Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, I always think of the first line of the poem ‘Autumn’ by John Keats as the nights begin to draw in. By the time you read this we will be starting to switch electric blankets on, grapple with central heating and stock up with logs for the log burner, if we have one. I used to love this season when teaching, lots of lovely messy autumnal pictures, collages with the variety of colourful leaves and ‘The Nature Table’. One year I arranged a lovely arrangement of wheat and barley, only to receive a severe ticking off from our caretaker for encouraging mice! I recently discovered that the word autumnal originated from an Etruscan term meaning ‘drying up season’, I also found that people born during autumn months are more likely to become centenarians and that the vibrant ambers, reds and yellows of autumn leaves are from the same chemicals that give carrots and egg yolks their colours. The wonderful staff from Hillside Care Home invited me to their ‘Fun Day’ on Bank Holiday Monday, and we did indeed have fun; everyone pulled out all the stops to ensure that whatever the age or lack of movement, they did have an enjoyable afternoon. Ben, a super young singer guitarist entertained with a wide range of songs, Hazel the cook provided some of the tastiest muffins that I could not resist. I have enormous respect for managers and carers in our Care Homes. They definitely do not undertake this vital work for their salaries; however, an enormous amount of dedication, patience and expertise was evident. A huge well done for making it an incredibly special day. I seem to have spent a lot of time in St Peter’s Church in the past few weeks, the closing down party was a great success with many of those who have supported and raised funds for the exciting improvements for the major face-lift this beautiful historical building. The Sudbury Choral Society performed a concert for the first time in two years. We had a maximum audience with Covid restrictions being carefully observed. The concert was free, however, those who attended donated just over an amazing £500 to Sudbury Rotary Club for local charities We have started to rehearse for our Christmas Concert which will be in St Gregory’s Church in December and 948-007-AddASplashOfColour-SCN-95x135point5mm-PWS.indd 1 will be performing ‘St Nicolas’ by Sir Benjamin Britten. Another Christmas tradition that will be held in St Gregory’s Church will be the 19th Christmas Tree Festival organised by Sudbury Rotary Club which will be from 7th to 11th of December. Hopefully, there will be one hundred trees on display, a delightful showcase of trees decorated by local businesses, schools, SPECIALIST IN COMPLETE BATHROOM organisations, and individuals.

Another joyous evening was spent at the Quay Theatre watching ‘Joking Apart’ written be Alan Ayckbourn and performed by Sudbury Amateur Dramatic Society. We are so fortunate to have such a super Theatre in our Town. I am looking forward to the variety of shows due to be held in the autumn leading up to the Pantomime. I love going to a Pantomime, they are always great fun whatever your age. Finally, a huge thanks to so many businesses, restaurants, cafes, and volunteers who made the Heritage Weekends so successful. Our Sudbury Town Manager Rachel Price and Sue Gale who came out of retirement had worked tirelessly to ensure that everything went smoothly. I was involved in the “Taste the World in Sudbury” that involved an amazing array of foods from our diverse cafes, restaurants and eateries. Baklavas and succulent feta cheese parcels and Pide Ekmek from Lydia’s Restaurant, Spam Fritters from the “Strawberry Teapot”, afternoon teas from The Mill Hotel, South African Koeksisters and Boerewors’ from “Painters Café”, Fresh Macarons provided by “The Secret Garden”, a variety of Woodfired Pizzas and Dough Triangles from Dough & Co and sweets from Mr F’s Traditional Sweet Shop. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet many visitors to our Town, they were so complimentary and thought our Town was “Just the best”. A gentleman from Halstead brought some family pictures in of his greatgrandmother who was the young girl in a painting that hangs in the Mayor’s Parlour. It was a memorable day indeed. A huge thanks to everyone concerned. All the best , Susan Ayres Town Mayor for Sudbury

Our new season of monthly illustrated talks has begun and is being streamed live via Zoom. The talks are given by experts - you may even recognise some from The Antiques Roadshow, others as broadcasters on Radios 3 and 4 - chosen for their knowledge, presentational skills and entertainment value, on topics ranging from the art of the young Picasso; 20th century glass; to Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. We are a group of people who are interested in and enjoy the arts in general. Our Society is affiliated to the national charity The Arts Society and our aim, through talks and occasional visits, is to broaden our knowledge and enjoyment of the arts in its widest form. Guests are welcome to ‘try us out’ free of charge by emailing: info@ and we will send you a Zoom link for the lecture of your choice. This autumn’s programme is:11:00 Tuesday The Subtle Science and Exact Art of Colour in English Garden Design 19 October Why Gardens rank as Fine Art. Timothy Walker. Timothy looks at how to apply these principles and how the work by Monet, Rothko, Pollock and Hockney evolved in parallel with ideas about what a garden or border should look like. 11:00 Tuesday Leonardo da Vinci: Pathfinder of Science. Guy Rooker. 16 November Leonardo said that nature must be his guide and that art was based on scientific understanding of everything depicted. In ‘normal’ times, lectures are held at the Quay Theatre in Sudbury on the 3rd Tuesday in the month at 11:00, from September to the following July. New members are welcome.

Sibarita--Spain’s Spain’s Organic Sibarita OrganicLarder Larder The “perfect storm” of problems affecting the United Kingdom’s supply lines seems, belatedly, to have been recognised by Government. Unfortunately, there are no quick fixes and it will take months for remedial measures to begin to have any effect. Retailers are particularly concerned by the prospect of empty shelves before Christmas. “Sibarita” - Spain’s Organic Larder” is fortunate in having completed its shipments from Spain some months ago and has good supplies of all its products to last well into the New Year. Sibarita is also fortunate in having related family logistics businesses with first-class Spanish partners and the ability to clear customs at a sister company’s inland customs-approved warehouse thus avoiding post-Brexit border delays. As our knowledge of Spanish cuisine is often based on our holiday experiences, there is a tendency to overlook that Spaniards love their hearty stews and soups in which pulses - beans, chickpeas and lentils, are a common ingredient. Sibarita has Deep a widePetrange of cooked Carpet Moth Specialists in Cleaning Carpets, Upholstery, Urine Cleaning Protection Treatment Curtains, Hard Flooring & Mattressesbeans in jars, with subtle differences in taste, size, texture and colour.

Rotary Round-Up (Photo: Anne Crawford)

How many Rotarians fit behind a bar? When Sudbury Rotary members provided a bar service on the evening St Peter’s closed, they found that could fit 11 people behind the counter (see photo)!

September proved to be another busy month in the Sudbury Rotary calender, with more street collections for local charities and also for the Haiti Relief Fund A pride of Rotarians – (£190.11 raised at the collection how many could we fit behind the bar? point at Tesco), the sponsoring of planters near the Library, yet another garden picnic (at the home of Rev Lynda Sebbage and her husband Peter (both former members of the Club), and a collection at the end of the Sudbury Choral Society Concert, which raised £500 for local charities.


As well as seeking to support local charities, where possible, with financial donations, members of Sudbury Rotary are also offering their time helping with other events and projects within the community.


Members joined with others in helping at the Community Litter Picks, as well as supporting the most recent Sudbury and District Transition Group Give and Take event, helping to serve refreshments and deal with donated items.

Sudbury Rotary has put ‘service before self’ for over 70 years. Rotarians are just ordinary people working together to actively change lives locally and internationally. If you would like to join us, and give some of your time, energy and enthusiasm to help your community and make new and lasting friendships, you will be most welcome.

Just Talk Mind and Body

JustTalk2019, a counselling service based in Sudbury, is excited to launch its new initiative of Just Talk Mind and Body. Over the past year and a half, the country has been in the midst of a pandemic which has taken its toll on not only the physical health but also the mental health of both children and adults. Just Talk 2019 is a non profit making arm of ExploringU Counselling, and provides affordable counselling for those who cannot afford to pay the usual hourly rates of a qualified counsellor. It does this by offering sessions with trainee counsellors, therefore also supporting a new generation of counsellors starting out in this crucial area. Just Talk 2019, relies on donations to its bridge fund in order to be able to subsidise the counselling provided to those who desperately need it. Some of the trainee counsellors and their families have recently held sponsored walks to help raise money to keep this vital service going. JustTalk2019 are now expanding their service to also include holistic treatments for disabled and able bodied people, offering full body massage, facials, Indian head massage, deep tissue massage and hot stones massage. The experienced therapist will be using natural plant-based products that are also vegan friendly and will be providing treatments on Wednesdays at the ExploringU Centre for Well Being in Sudbury. When she began Just Talk 2019, CEO Glenda Roberts did so with the philosophy of Ubuntu which has the idea of community at the heart of it. Part of the money raised from the treatments will be donated to the bridge fund and so whilst using this service people will also be supporting the mental health of the local community. In launching this new venture, Glenda hopes to provide complete care for both mind and body whilst helping the community to care for each other by making sure mental health care is available for all. If you would like to learn more about JustTalk2019, access counselling, book treatments or donate to the bridge fund then please visit or call 0330 1200279 Written By Vicky Godfrey (Trainee Counsellor with JustTalk)

Couples save when making wills Regional solicitors Holmes & Hills now offers a Will writing service which provides couples with a saving of between 17% and 21% on legal fees, when making Mirror Wills at the same time. Married couples, long-term partners and cohabiting couples all benefit from the saving. Why make a Will at all? Quite simply, if you do not make a Will the law says who inherits your estate. Most people assume that everything would pass automatically to their partner, but this is not necessarily so and certainly if you are not married or in a civil partnership, they will have no automatic right to inherit any part of your estate. Your estate may pass to the person or persons you would not want to inherit. It may result in financial hardship for your loved ones or an expensive court action. Making a Will ensures that the people you want to benefit when you die receive your estate. Holmes & Hills Solicitors are experienced to be able to draft a Will that is tailor-made to meet your specific requirements. We appreciate that some couples have ‘simple’ arrangements whilst for others their affairs may be more ‘complex’. Whatever your specific circumstances, Holmes & Hills Solicitors will be able to assist you. Couples often wish to receive advice as follows: • How to update an existing Will • How to provide for young children • How to plan for future care needs • How to leave business interests • How to provide for a disabled child or adult • What steps they should take if choosing to leave out a beneficiary from their Will • Provide for children from a former relationship • How to set up a trust • How to protect your contribution to the purchase price of a property when you live with someone else* • How to give away an inheritance in a tax efficient manner** What if you have children from a previous relationship? Making a Will is very important for couples who may have children from previous relationships and want to ensure that their money will pass to their own family. This can be a sensitive issue between couples – but it doesn’t have to be so. It is possible to draft a Will making sure that your spouse/partner is provided for in the event of your death and ensuring that ultimately your family will inherit your estate. No better time to make a Will – save up to 21% Married couples, long-term couples and civil partners all save between 17-21% when making Mirror Wills, with the exact saving being subject to the complexity of the affairs. You will be advised of this at an initial meeting. There really is ‘no time like the present’ for you and your partner to make your Wills. Even if you have already made a Will, it might be a good idea to review it and see if it still meets all your requirements and accurately reflects your wishes. It doesn’t matter if Holmes & Hills did not draft your existing Will, we are still able to advise you and prepare a new one should you wish to do so. To talk to a local lawyer about making or updating your Will, call Holmes & Hills Solicitors on 01787 275275 and ask to speak with Deborah Abbott or Dean Stanhope. *Declaration of Trust. **Deed of Variation. Couples save 17%-21% when making Mirror Wills at the same time.

Add a splash of colour There are a whole host of plants that give colour in the garden throughout autumn. Bursting with bright reds, warm golds, mauves and soft pinks that look striking against seasonal greens to provide a spectacular display from autumn into the winter months! There are many perennials that flower in late summer and continue into the autumn. Bold coloured salvia, aster and dahlia offer beautiful blooms that really stand out. Heuchera and ornamental grasses provide striking rich foliage and texture to borders and containers. Seedheads left behind by summer flowering plants such as foxglove, teasel and Turkish sage can be left in place for extra decoration, they look particularly sensational when decorated by jack frost.

Ultra-low emission HVO fleet takes to the road

Babergh and Mid Suffolk are the first rural UK councils to switch their fleet to Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) – slashing carbon emissions by up to 90% and supporting the councils’ carbon neutral aims. This week, the councils’ waste fleet has begun its transfer over to HVO. Its 35 waste lorries are the first to transfer, and will be followed by its smaller public realm and housing services vehicles. By ditching diesel, they will see a significant reduction in pollutant emissions from their fleet, with up to a 90% reduction in CO2. It will also support a circular economy, as the certified sustainable HVO fuel is solely produced from waste cooking oil. The move was approved by the councils’ cabinets in January this year, and forms a major step in their Carbon Reduction Management Plan, which sets out how net zero carbon emissions aim to be achieved by 2030. Before HVO, the fleet represented just over a quarter (26%) of the councils’ total CO2 emissions, approximately 880 tonnes per year – which will now reduce immediately. HVO fuel provided the councils with a near-immediate and efficient way to reduce emissions. This is because, aside from slightly increased fuel costs and new tanks, the transition from traditional diesel fuel to HVO requires minimal changes to the councils’ existing fleet. The new fuel will cost between 10-15% more than using conventional diesel. However, by using HVO, lower maintenance costs and longer engine life for the vehicles are expected.

Sds November Production Dial M For Murder


01787 313500 14 Telephone Sudbury Community News on 01473 652354

The next production from Sudbury Dramatic Society back onstage again at The Quay Theatre is a classic murder mystery, Dial M for Murder by Frederick Knott, which will be on at the theatre from Tuesday 9th to Saturday 13th November at 7.45pm Less of a whodunit, more of a will-he-get-away-with-it, Dial M for Murder is a play of lies and betrayal, blackmail and murder and some people may remember the plot from the Alfred Hitchcock film.  This exciting thriller tingles with suspense and intrigue as each character becomes drawn unwittingly into one man’s murderous scheme.   Tony Wendice has married Margot for her money and wants to murder her for the same reason. He blackmails Captain Lesgate into committing his perfect murder and arranges an alibi for himself. And that is almost what happens…. Luckily, Inspector Hubbard and Max, who is in love with Margot, discover the truth and in a race against time they trap Wendice into revealing his guilt. Director of Dial M for Murder, Gemma Cooper, who last appeared herself in the Sudbury Dramatic Society 2019 successful production of Terror, says she is delighted that the production, which was cast and ready to start rehearsals for July 2020, has been able to start again with the same cast in place. Dial M for Murder is on at The Quay Theatre from Tuesday 9th November to Saturday 13th November at 7.45pm from The Quay Theatre Box Office on 01787 374745 or online at www.quaysudbury. com or via

Yarn Worx, Hadleigh’s New Yarn Shop


We may have only been open a few weeks but what an amazing few weeks it’s been. Our knit nights and knit & natter mornings have been a roaring success.People with common interests have come together to knit or crochet in each other’s company and some beautiful friendships have formed… One of our regular customers from Newmarket who needed some advice on a knitting pattern met up in the shop with another customer from Ipswich. These two people initially met at one of our knit nights, hit it off and swapped phone numbers. Our learn to knit and learn to crochet courses continue to be ever popular with all current dates fully booked. We will be releasing more dates shortly so do keep in touch if you want to reserve a space on one of these. We do plan to offer different courses for more advanced knitters and crocheters. These are likely to take place in the new year and include knitting in the round, sock knitting, Amigurumi (the art of knitting or crocheting stuffed toys), brioche knitting and more. With the evenings drawing in and cooler weather just around the corner, we have started to think about autumnal colours and thicker, cosier yarns. Do keep us in mind and pay us a visit when you are ready to start your next project. The shop is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm. A warm welcome awaits. Follow Yarn Worx on Instagram (@yarn_worx) for the latest updates.

We’re back after 16 months without a rehearsal together and more than that since our last public performance. After a cautious outdoor start in July we moved rehearsals inside when the general restrictions were lifted, although masks are still used when moving around. We welcomed Rob who joined us on bass trombone and will shortly be joined by another bass player. There are still vacancies – tenor trombone, 2nd tenor horn and bass players. Currently we only have a couple of public performances lined up – we hope to be able to participate at the Holy Trinity Service of Remembrance on 14th November and we have booked the Village Hall for a Christmas Concert on 18th December.

Awarded by the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, the match funding is to help deliver jobs, skills and infrastructure in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. Among the first rural UK councils trialling the technology, the councils’ hope is that by championing innovation, their example will encourage others to follow suit. Works, which are being carried out by East Anglia-based Polysolar, are expected to start this Autumn, with completion due by Spring 2022. Cllr Elisabeth Malvisi, Babergh District Council’s cabinet member for environment, said: “With the installation of solar carport technology in Sudbury ready to get underway, it clearly demonstrates our forwardlooking approach for our towns. We want them to thrive, by leading the way when it comes to clean growth and technology – and this is just one of the ways we’re doing that. “Suffolk, and Babergh, are a natural fit for solar, receiving more sun hours on average than the rest of the UK. I hope this project will help to ensure Babergh continues to be a place in which people are proud to live and work.”
