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.

The Country Trust and the Brandeston

The village newsletter, the Brandeston, is sponsored by The Country Trust whose objectives include:

  • offering children wider horizons

  • educating children and teachers with firsthand experiences of sustainable farming, forestry, food production, sound husbandry and care of the environment
  • identifying future job prospects
  • working towards reducing crime and antisocial behaviour by giving young people a fuller meaning to their lives, enhancing their appreciation of and respect for others.

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.
