Updated Tennis Court News: After a brief open period, the court has been closed again because it was painted on 1 June, as you can see above. It will reopen later this week on a first come first served basis - bring your own racquet and tennis balls. A temporary booking system has been set up in Google Calendar but feel free to use the court if there is no one playing. Instructions on how to use the temporary calendar can be found here.

Photos showing its construction can be found here.

Brandeston Meals on Wheels

Our monthly lunch seems to be going from strength to strength and we are very grateful to everyone who supports it through their attendance and the people who help us with the many tasks involved. Jane and I are wondering if there might be a demand for a 'meals on wheels' type extension to the lunch for anyone who might be housebound or poorly. I think we would have to restrict the delivery area to Brandeston and Kettleburgh, but in the first instance we would just like to gauge demand. So, if you would like to use this new service (sadly only once a month, usually the second Tuesday) or know someone who would, please let Jane (685190) or me know and we will get it organised.

Mary Mitson-Woods (684026).

Hearing Loop Installed

With grateful thanks to The National Lottery through its Big Lottery Fund, the village hall has installed a hearing loop around the main hall. Its installation will allow people to hear much better whenever amplified sound is used by switching their hearing aids to the T position.
