Sheila was the Parish Council Clerk from 1954 to 1995. She did an excellent job serving the parish and the Council, always diplomatic & conscientious in her work. More

Managing the Common
In October Councillors and the Deputy Clerk reviewed the condition of the Common with Greenways to agree a maintenace plan. The workplan will be implemented during the next 12 months to maintain develop the open space for the benefit of Parishioners. Particular thought has been given to the integration of the Mill Heath Development and the needs of new residents moving in.
We welcome Sylvia Howard as the newest member of the Council; she has been co-opted to the Martlesham North ward where she also lives and works. This means we now have a ‘full house’ of 15 councillors
