Road Safety Week which  started on Monday 16 November, and runs until Sunday 22 November, is organised by the charity Brake, It aims to raise awareness of the dangers on our roads and the steps drivers can take themselves to help improve their own safety, and the safety of other road users.
During this period Suffolk Police will also be supporting the NPCC roads policing campaign. This is targeted towards vulnerable road users, including pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists and horse riders. Read More


County Broadband, a company based in Essex, are currently trying to ascertain the level of interest in providing fibre broadband direct to the home or office in Stradbroke. Subject to demand, the company may well extend the reach of networks they are currently building in South Norfolk.  They may well have written to you already and they may also knock on your door. To find out more visit their website here. Reliable fast broadband is becoming more and more essential in our lives, so this could be very welcome news for Stradbroke.
If you have a very poor broadband connection (less than 10Mbps download or 1Mbps upload) you may well be able to get BT to remedy matters under what is known as a USO (Universal Service Obligation). This came into force in March this year and could be worth investigating. See Ofcom’s website  here

Garden Plants on offer
The garden at Frythe Barn on Wilby Rd is going through something of an overhaul and we are digging up a large border and converting it to grass to make our life easier in the future. There are a large number of plants, some of which are going into pots for sale in the Spring; the rest are available for anyone who would like to collect them for bare root planting now. 
If there is sufficient interest, we will choose a couple of days to put them in boxes and on plastic sheets and leave them just inside the gate with a box for donations. At the moment, of course, we can’t allow anyone into the garden. 
All money raised will go to the Drop In Charity in Bury St. Edmunds which is run by the father of our future son in law. This centre provides meals and fresh food parcels for needy families, furniture and household items for previously homeless people who have been housed by the council and also helps to fund educational courses for young people who are keen to get qualifications to enable them to apply for work.
