Installation of adult gym equipment at the Playing Field was completed at the end of November 2022, sadly closely followed by some very cold weather. The gym was 100% funded by a Babergh District Council community grant totalling nearly £16,000, and is a resource for use by anyone over the age of 12, giving access to safe equipment without having to joining a gym or leave the village - each piece of apparatus has instructions for use clearly displayed.
Babergh has asked us for information on usage; as this is difficult to capture we would really appreciate your comments on the equipment and/or on your use thereof - please email firstname.lastname@example.org so this information can be passed onto the council.
HEATING OIL SECURITY
Now that nights are fully drawn in, the weather's turned cold, damp and miserable, and oil is currently very expensive, sadly oil thieves are very much out and about - there have been numerous reports of thefts / attempted thefts locally.
Please be on your guard, and here are some tips from Suffolk Constabulary.
- Keep your tank visible;
- Provide lighting around your tank;
- If your tank is fenced in make sure the fence and any gates are secure;
- Check your oil gauges regularly;
- Invest in an approved tank alarm.

St. Lawrence Church, Lt. Waldingfield have recently started to provide a Food Bank of non-perishable items on shelving on the left as you walk into the church.
The Parochial Church Council sincerely hope that this facility will be used as and when people need food. EVERYTHING IS FREE and WITHIN DATE.
To anyone who has surplus non-perishable food to spare, please place it on the shelving in church - thank you.
LITTLE WALDINGFIELD PARISH ROOM TRUST
Could you be a volunteer charity trustee for the Little Waldingfield Parish Room?
Are you community minded and do you like organising or helping with events?
Do you have ideas on how the Parish Room could be used?
Do you have a couple of hours to attend meetings five or six times a year plus time preparing for Trustee events?
You would be part of a Trustee Board to oversee the management and administration of the organisation. As a trustee of the Little Waldingfield Parish Room, you will play a very important role so that the charity is run appropriately to preserve this valuable village asset in the interests of the community.
Being a trustee is very rewarding. As a trustee you have the chance to support and shape the work and strategic direction of a community charity and make a significant difference to your community. We do this by organising and running events for our community and renting our facilities.
If you are interested in joining the Parish Room Trustee team and making Little Waldingfield an even better place to live, helping to provide educational, social, recreational and health promoting opportunities for local residents, please contact Alan Campbell, Chairman 01787 249941
