THE Leiston Good Neighbour Scheme (LGNS) provides free voluntary help to people who are socially isolated in Leiston, Sizewell or Knodishall. For example volunteers can visit someone for a chat, help to fill in a form, support and/ or accompany them to go to an activity, do a minor repair, collect a prescription, walk their dog, or carry out a small amount of shopping for them. They can visit regularly, just once, or as needed, depending on what someone would like. Volunteers can also do a one- off garden tidy for someone who is no longer able to manage this themselves. We do not, however, provide transport (for example to take someone to hospital) because this service is carried out by CATS. We currently have 16 volunteers who have different skills to offer, and have carried out nearly 40 activities with people so far. We would love to hear from you if you

are interested in volunteering with us. You can choose what you would like to do, and how often, for example, some people like befriending, and others prefer to give practical help. We would like to thank the Sizewell

Sports and Social

Club for the donation raised at their coffee morning for £233. We now have some cards

and A4 posters to advertise and promote LGNS, and are in the process of placing these in local shops, business and public places. Our phone is held on a rota

basis from Monday to Friday 9am-5pm, but you can leave a message at any time, and someone will call you back as soon as possible. The phone number is 07724 777465. You can also use email:

Alde Valley Suffolk Family History Group AGM

OVER thirty members and visitors attended the Annual General Meeting of the Alde Valley Suffolk Family History Group held on April 15th at the United Church in Leiston. In her report, the Chairwoman, Diana Mann, commented on a productive year, especially


our recent project to scan, preserve and print about 80 photographs of Leiston Grammar School sports teams dating from the 1930s, and she asked for ex pupils and staff to contact the Group to help date photos and identify


She also informed the meeting of our recent acquisition of about 250 historic large scale Ordnance Survey maps which are currently being indexed, and

will be available for

viewing in our Help Centre in due course. The Treasurer, Steve Stocks, reported that we have around £2000 in the bank; and the Membership Secretary, Pat Carter, stated we currently have 85 paid up members. The Secretary, Angela Skelcher, apologised for any inconvenience caused by monthly talks being on different days of the week and in different locations. This was due mainly to the fact that with the Co-op (Solar) changing their parking policy, it is now no longer practical to hold meetings in Leiston United Church.

The Chairwoman, Diana Mann, was re-elected unanimously, as were the Secretary (Angela Skelcher), the Treasurer (Steve Stocks)

and the Membership Secretary (Pat Carter). The Committee was re-elected unchanged.

New Saxmundham Fromus Centre takes step closer

FOLLOWING the well- attended public meeting held at the current Fromus Centre, last May and chaired by local County Councillor Richard Smith, the creation of a new community hub incorporating a new Fromus Centre has taken a major step forward in becoming a reality.

The Saxmundham & District Community Interest Company (SADCIC) has now agreed an updated layout plan for the new Fromus Centre, as part of planned refurbishment of the Suffolk County Council’s Street Farm Road Buildings. This latest layout plan now takes account of all our suggested improvements to the original layout for the new community centre.

Planning Applications have

been submitted and work on site is expected to start later this summer. All being well, by the end of June, the library will temporarily move into a refurbished Portakabin onsite, to make way for the start of works and refurbishment of the whole site. When the library moves back into their part of the

refurbished Street Farm

Buildings, the Portakabin will become part of SADCIC’s new Fromus Centre


Advance work on the whole site should start in July and all of the new community hub should be completed and opened to the public by September 2020. The final site will contain various community tenants and so will become a multi- agency, multi-function building and provide Saxmundham, and the surrounding villages, with a new and comprehensive community hub. The aim for SADCIC is to then give priority to all existing Fromus Centre hirers to take the opportunity to move over to the new Fromus Centre, ready for the Grand Launch of the new Fromus Centre in October 2020.

“Plans for a new Fromus Centre are now well advanced and I am delighted to report that Suffolk County Council is making significant progress with the scheme. In 18 months time, SADCIC will be able to hit the ground running and present Saxmundham with a new community facility. This brand new community amenity will come with a fully-equipped hall, commercial kitchen and rooms to hire - enabling local clubs, groups and businesses to put on a whole range of activities and services. In the meantime,

we will continue to develop the current Fromus Centre, which has been in operation for eight successful years at the Seaman Avenue site,” said Steve Palmer, SADCIC Chairman.

U3A is open to all, with no entry qualifications!

There’s no entry qualification and no barriers. All that U3A asks is that you come along with an open mind, be prepared to join in and contribute to one or more of the many activities on offer. The range of activities is huge, with everything from walking to knitting, astronomy to Spanish, scrabble to Shakespeare. The speaker programme includes talks on different topics at various venues. Upcoming ones are listed below. The U3A Open Day on Friday 6th September from 10.30am to 12.30pm at Kesgrave Community Centre gives members and potential members notice to see what is on offer for the coming year.
