Offton & Willisham PC
First Impressions was Jane Austen's original title for her novel, Pride and Prejudice. I think most people agree that first impressions are important though they can be misleading or inaccurate, often resulting in prejudice. However, when first impressions are good, they colour the way we perceive people and places in a positive way.

Some years ago, before we moved to Suffolk, we had a caravan on the cliffs at Dunwich. One day, driving along the road from the A12 to Dunwich via Westleton, we spotted a table with benches attached - perfect for outside the caravan. It was for sale at £40.00 and there was an honesty box. We liked it, thought it good value, and managed to scrape together £40.00, but we needed to check that it would fit in the Volvo Estate that we were using. Well, after much twisting and turning, we discovered that the table was one centimetre too big, whichever way we tried to squeeze it in.

As we were putting it back in position, the owner of the wood yard arrived in his pick-up truck. We asked if it might be possible for him to deliver the table to the caravan site for us - we'd be happy to pay. He looked at us, then at the table, and was quiet for a few moments, then he said: "£25.00 and I'll throw in delivery." I was confused.

"No, no, we're happy with the price. It's just that we couldn't fit it in the car so we didn't put the money in the box straightaway."

"No," he said, "that's been there a little while so £25.00 is fine."

Eventually, we knocked him up to £30.00. But you can see how that encounter, that first impression, coloured our view of Suffolk.

Another story: some friends in Nacton were having a visitor from London. They had told her which bus to catch and which stop to get off at. She duly asked the driver, who promised to tell her when they arrived at the stop. Her friends had told her, roughly, how long it would take, so, when it was five or six minutes over that time, she was getting anxious and asked the driver if they were almost there. The driver had forgotten. He was mortified and duly asked the other passengers how they felt about taking the young lady back to her stop. They all agreed, the bus was turned around, and she was taken the mile or so to where she should have been dropped off originally. Another first impression!

All right, I know it doesn't always work like that and we've probably all had some experience of less than honest, unhelpful people etc, but in a cynical, self-motivated world, it's good to remember true stories like this, and other kindnesses and good manners. Don't you think?

(We are grateful to Jean Hardman of Willisham for this letter)

Once again Angela and Heather would like to say Thank you to everyone that helped in any way.


It seems strange to be writing this piece today in early July, knowing that when you read it in August the school will be closed for the summer break. I think all of the staff and pupils feel very ready for the holidays, it's been a busy year and after receiving our long-anticipated visit from Ofsted last week we're all about ready to slow down a little! The
inspectors, quite rightly praised us for the many great things that go on in the school, they thought our field was great and especially liked our raised beds full of vegetables!

They picked up straight away on the happy and relaxed atmosphere and commented on the good relationships between staff, pupils and families. These things are very important to us, children can't learn unless they're happy and healthy and providing for this is a big part of our School.

The hardworking FOSS committee contribute so much to our school, and we'd like to thanks them for putting on such a fabulous fete this year! We must also thank you for attending as we raising an amazing £1800 which will make a big difference to our school in this time of tightening budgets!

I must also thank everyone for saving various Sainsbury, Tesco, Morrisons, and cereal 'Box Tops' vouchers for us, we have managed to order all kinds of resources for the school from these, from wooden spoons, to gardening gloves, tennis balls to bamboo water-play pipes!
Having another year of good SATs results has put the icing on the cake of a successful year here.

We are all looking forward to welcoming our new pupils into the school in September and seeing the pupils already here continue to go from strength to strength in their new year groups. In September if you would like to visit us to share some skills, look around if you're thinking of applying for a place at the school (either for reception, or a move from elsewhere), or you'd just like to nose around, do call Mrs Maguire in the office on 1473 831252 or email

Visit to Challain-la-Potherie 2010

(Apologies that this was omitted from the June Link -Ed)

A large bright and airy coach was waiting for us when 36 local people of all ages met at Somersham village hall for the start of our 10th anniversary visit to our link French village in the Loire Valley.

A warm welcome awaited us as our hosts and friends gathered for our arrival. Big smiles, hugs and 'bonjour' all round, and refreshing drinks in the village hall before back to our hosts homes for an evening meal and a chance to practice our smatterings of French and English on each other. Sign language, dictionaries and laughter also helped the communications along.

Our hosts had planned an action filled weekend for us. Saturday morning and afternoon were spent with host families exploring the region. Then followed a visit to the village sports centre where Vincent and others had organised hilarious team games instead of our regular tug-of-war. The evening was a celebration of our 10th anniversary year in the village hall when more than 100 people sat down to a traditional French meal of coq-au-vin. Short speeches followed and two of our young teenagers gave a speech in fluent French, very well done Melissa and William! Somersham presented Challain with a bench to mark this auspicious occasion, Kate and Steve sang English folksongs and got our entire contingent to sing a celebratory song which they had composed. A slide show of photos taken by Rene-Luc over the last ten years brought back many happy memories. Dancing to music played by a local Challain group went on well into the small hours of the next day.

On Sunday two coaches full of hosts and visitors took us to a beauty spot beside the River Loire, then on to lunch at a Crêperie. Later at the beautiful Château de Serrant we were given a guided tour by the English speaking guide, who we later learned was the owner of the château. Then back to the village to spend the evening with our hosts.

All too soon the visit was over and Monday morning had us back in our coach for the return journey. A brilliant weekend, thanks to all who organised it and to those who came along and made it all so enjoyable and worthwhile. We look forward to receiving visitors from our link village here next year. If you would like to join us on these exchanges please get in touch with:

Somersham Parish Council


Forthcoming Parish Council Meetings

Wednesday 1st September 2010
Wednesday 6th October 2010
Wednesday 3rd November 2010

All meetings commence at 7.30pm in the Village Hall and the press and public are welcome to attend.

Vehicle Activated Speed Sign outside Village Hall

Initial impressions received by the parish council are that this new speed sign is effective in reducing the speed of vehicles entering Somersham in a westbound direction. The parish council would welcome any feedback from parishioners on your views of the effectiveness of this sign, particularly from those who frequently exit Church Lane and turn right and for which complaints have been received on the hazards caused by speeding vehicles from this direction. The parish council has continued to seek speed management and traffic calming measures at the other end of the village.

Community Speedwatch Scheme

It is now looking more hopeful that Somersham will be able to set up a Community Speedwatch scheme in partnership with some neighbouring parishes. Discussions are taking place relating to financial implications and funding possibilities, but in the meantime we are still looking for a few volunteers who can help with the scheme. Three volunteers are located at agreed sites and a record is made of speeding vehicles. There is no contact with any drivers. The objective of the scheme is not to catch as many speeding drivers as possible but to reduce speed in areas of concern and address the concerns of local residents about cars speeding through their neighbourhoods. The 30mph speed limit is there for a purpose and these schemes are proving to be successful in other parishes by deterring motorists from speeding through villages. If you are interested in further details please contact the Clerk who can forward more information.

Vacancy for a Parish Councillor

Somersham Parish Council currently has a vacancy for a parish councillor and has permission to co-opt. Parish council elections take place in May 2011 when all parish councillors are up for re-election. If you would like to be involved in protecting and enhancing your local community using the powers of local democracy please apply in writing to the parish clerk. If you would like to know more about the role of a parish councillor please contact any of the current parish councillors.

MSDC Skin Piercing etc Byelaws 2010

MSDC has issued Byelaws which take effect from Monday 2nd August 2010. The Bylaws cover acupuncture, tattooing, semi-permanent skin colouring, cosmetic piercing and electrolysis. A copy of the Byelaw will be posted on the parish council notice board by the end of July.

And Finally
A reminder that the parish council does not meet in August.
Everyone at Somersham Parish Council wishes you a very happy summer holiday and hopes the weather stays good.

Janet Clarke Tel. No. 01473 830398
Clerk to the Council

Flowton News

Thank you to everybody involved with the Flower Festival and Gardens Open Weekend. You are a wonderful team!
At the time of writing I still do not know the final total but it looks to be near £3000.

As we prepared for the weekend we heard of the death of former Flowton resident Jack Flowers on June 14th. His funeral took place in Truro on June 28th. Our thoughts are with Marjorie at this sad time.

Telephone kiosk:

The purchase of the Flowton Telephone Kiosk has been completed, and it is now owned by Flowton Parish Meeting. After re-decoration and refurbishment it is hoped to use the kiosk as a Parish Notice Board, where parishioners can peruse the notices in the dry!
We hope all parishioners will approve and make good use of it.

Just to let you know that the Village Coffee Drop-in will be open as usual from 10 am on the first Wednesday of August and September.

Looking ahead:

Saturday September 25th
there will be a harvest workshop for children at 10.00am

Our Harvest Festival is on September 26th at 4.00pm, followed by the Harvest Tea at 4.45pm

The annual Harvest Supper will be on Friday October 8th at 7.30pm at Flowton Hall by kind invitation of Graham and Diana Fawcus.

Carols by Candlelight on Christmas Eve at 6.30pm



Recent Events

Our annual Fete was held on Saturday 12 June. We were blessed with beautiful weather, which made this traditional village event such a pleasure. Many people, too many to list here, gave their time and energy to organising this event, and to all of them we say a very special 'thank you'. Of course, we are no less grateful to the many people in the parish that came and enjoyed what is accepted as such an important annual occasion in the village's life, and for spending their money so wisely. Over £1,100 was raised for the church Fabric Fund to help keep this very special medieval church in such lovely condition.

Future Events

As an aide-memoir for your diary, these events and special services are being planned.

Sunday 12 September at 5.00 pm - Harvest Festival Service

On a date to be confirmed - Family Quiz in the village hall

Saturday 9 October at 7.00 pm - Supper-in-Church. Limited space on a first come basis. Cost £12.50 each. Contact Mike Bolton on Tel: 01473 658304 for further information or to reserve a place.

Sunday 14 November at 6.30 pm - Remembrance Day Service

Sunday 19 December at 10.00 am Christmas Carol Servic

A very big THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to the success of the Offton Fete on June 12th, we raised £1100 which was a great total, and it will help to keep your church in good repair. The people who contibuted in some way are too numerous to mention individually, but the team effort is amazing. It never fails to astound me on Fete day, what people can accomplish when they all pull together in the same direction, all the different strands of involvement wove into a beautiful and memorable afternoon .

The supporters who came to enjoy what was on offer were of course the yeast in the dough! So thank you to all of them too; it was nice to see several canine companions enjoying themselves as well, I noticed that they were particulary partial to the icecreams !

The band who set the traditional scene for us were advertised as 'The Ipswich Hospital Intermediate Band'; they have changed their name to St. Peter's Band ( after the church where they practise ) not such a mouthful!

Please put forward any fund raising ideas that you may have, the Fete does not cover the total upkeep of the church; and now that the church no longer has an income from the MMM concerts we must find new ways to supplement income to keep Offton's oldest building open and in good repair for future generations to enjoy.'


We are pleased to report a total of £96.00 raised from our recent Picture Quiz. Our thanks to Jessica Tappenden for her hard work in compiling it; and congratulations to the winner Mike Southgate from Somersham.



Please note that there will be no Evening Prayer service on Sunday, 8th August.

Over the past two years, as a result of donations made in memory of loved ones and grants received from various agencies, we have been able to replace several items and to improve the fabric of the church. The Rev. Bernard Rose will dedicate these items at our evening service on Sunday, 12th September at 3-00 p.m. Those who have made
donations will be invited to the service and we extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us on this occasion.

Our Harvest Thanksgiving Service will be on Sunday, 10th October at 3-00 p.m.

Looking even further ahead, our Carol Service will take place on Sunday, 12th December at 3-00 p.m.


At the time of writing, the fete is yet to happen and a full account will be given in the October edition of The Link.

Willisham Church will be open on Saturday, 11th September between 9-00 a.m. and 5-00 p.m. for the Suffolk Historic Churches Cycle Ride.

The Bonfire Evening will be held on Friday, 5th November, at Crow Hall Farm

Offton and Willisham New Village Hall - Status Report July 2010

I am pleased to report that progress is very good on the new site. The foundations and base slab are now in position and ready for the building manufacturer to start prefabrication off-site.

A difficulty has been identified getting power safely delivered because of the proximity of the existing high voltage lines. This is being worked through with EDF and I am hopeful that a solution agreeable to all parties has been found.

The funding position remains 'difficult'. The delay in completing the sale on the old hall means we could not start work as soon as we had originally hoped meaning the original building quotations needed to be revisited leading to some inevitable increases reflecting those in the raw materials. Against that, we have received notification in the last month of another successful grant bid and we still have several applications in for consideration.

The original intention was that the roof of the hall should be terracotta to match the nearby houses and the barn at Castle Farm. MSDC have refused permission for this and it will now be mid grey as in the opinion of their landscaping officer, this merges better into the scenery especially when viewed from a distance. While this decision can be challenged it would cause an three month delay in the build.

By the time this update lands on your doormat, we should be seeing real signs of construction starting. Please come up to take a look but ensure you observe the warning below. As always, any questions or problems (or donations!), please contact myself or any committee member.

[New Village Hall]
Residents are reminded that the land is now a 'building site'. No-one should attempt to cross through the barriers unless escorted by the contractor. Hard hats and protective clothing will become compulsory. Please stress to children that building sites may look safe and interesting, but are very dangerous and full of hidden hazards. We do not want a child to be hurt while this is being built.

Offton and Willisham Village Hall Management Committee
The 2010 Annual General Meeting will be held at 8pm on Thursday 9th September 2010 in the Village Hall.


Reinforcing its determination to combat antisocial behaviour, SCC has appointed a special phone number: 08456 034715, under the 'Play Your Part' initiative, for the public to report such behaviour. More information is available from Alan Keely: 01473 265159

Suffolk Constabulary will close the Public Enquiry Desk at Ipswich Town Hall, effectively from towards the end of 2010 and reduce the number of opening hours at others. The nearest one is at Stowmarket.

People suffering from breathlessness can attend six week rehabilitation courses to assist them. Contact your GP or Practice Nurse. More details on the notice boards.

MSDC have issued byelaws covering Skin Piercing. They are placed on deposit at MSDC Offices.

The Parish Council welcomes PC Matt Brown who has been appointed for our villages. He replaces Sian Uttley who has moved to Elmswell and leaves with our best wishes.

The road closure of the B1115 in Bildeston High Street, scheduled for July, will now take place on 22/23 August. See Notice Boards.

The summer league fixtures are well under way, with almost half of the matches played. We started the beginning of May with a home game against Martlesham, we made a good start with three teams playing well, and the visitors, apart from one team, found the mats difficult, at the end of an enjoyable evenings bowling, Offton and Willisham took the match by three games to two, and with a superior shots total, we won by 8 points to 2.

Our next match was away at Old Felixstowe, they are a tough team to play against, especially on their own mats, once again there was some good play by both sides, one of our teams played really well and managed a win, the final score being a reverse of the first match, and we lost 2 points to 8.

We finished the month by entertaining Claydon at home, another team we find hard to beat, but this time we just managed a win, it was a hard fought match with good bowling by both teams, and at the end we shared the games two each, but Offton and Willisham had the greater number of shots by a small margin, the end result was 6-4 to us.

We began June with a visit to Tuddenham, another club were we find adjusting to the mats very difficult , and we normally don't win a game, but one team had a good night and bowled well, and managed to win their game, we lost the other three, and went down 2-8.

Our last match in June was the return game at home to Old Felixstowe, again there was some good bowling by both teams, and the visitors managed to adapt to our mats, better than we adapted to theirs, it was a close match, with the visitors winning two games, the home team won one and one was drawn, O/W were fortunate to have a greater number of shots, by a small margin, and so the points were shared 5-5.

The club are looking forward to the new village hall being completed, and we hope it might encourage some new members to join. We welcome anyone who would like to have a go at playing at our club nights on Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm, for more information contact Valerie on 01473 657023, or any club member.
