Poppy Appeal.
Due to Covid 19 restrictions and advice there won’t be a door-to-door collection this year but poppies will be on sale in some shops. Arrangements for the service at the War Memorial in the village on Sunday 8th November are still to be confirmed but it is likely that there will be only the presentations of wreaths and not a the usual large gathering of residents. If you want to make a donation directly to the Royal British Legion or get involved in some other way do visit the RBL website here.

Suffolk Police are warning drivers about the consequences of filming collision scenes, as several motorists were caught offending during an incident in August.  Following a serious road traffic collision on the A14 - which resulted in the closure of one of the carriageways for several hours - seven motorists driving on the opposite carriageway were caught filming the collision scene as they drove past, four of whom were HGV drivers.  The full story here

Stradbroke Cinema
The next film is Parasite. A clever look at timely social themes in this pitch-black modern fairy tale.  The Park family are the epitome of aspirational wealth whereas the Kim family are rich in being street smart but nothing else. The two families are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity to provide ‘indispensable’ luxury services.  A real treat as a riotous social satire working on many levels – black comedy, thriller, horror and family drama all wrapped in the class issue. The film will be shown on Thursday 19th November, tickets will go on sale on Sunday 1st November here. The last two films were both a sell-out, so buy early to avoid disappointment.

Community Centre Extension
The open days on 17th and 18th October were well attended with lots of positive comment and overwhelming support for a 2 storey extension. We will provide an online version of the public consultation exercise in the next few weeks and will publish further details in the next newsletter and on the website.
