Fencing upgrade
The parish council upgraded and repaired most of the fence along the A14 side of St Mary’s Green in January. This was achieved with funding from the parish council and £3,750 from Suffolk County Councillor Stuart Bird’s Locality Budget. Thank you for the fantastic feedback.

We have now booked the contractor to deal with the very poor section of fence at the Water Tower end of the green. The chain-link fence is on land owned by Bloor Homes and we are pursuing them to have this repaired/replaced.

Following meetings with Highways England regarding the A14 improvement works, a crash barrier has now been installed along the length of the slip road and the trees have been cut back to widen the carriageway and improve visibility. The open embankment north of Thurman’s Lane will also be planted with trees and shrubs to reduce noise pollution and help the A14 to blend into the landscape. While these developments have improved safety, they are still not entirely adequate and we continue to lobby Suffolk County Council (the landowners) to install a proper fence along the embankment to keep pedestrians and pets safe.

A thank you from Reg Dixon’s family
Reg Dixon’s family have asked us to send sincere thanks to all who paid tribute on our Facebook page and those who lined the High Road on Friday 12 March.
