Monday Meet Ups are at the Village Hall

from 2.00 to 3.30 pm.

Monday Meet Ups are for ANYONE, any age, anything to get away from the TV screen and meet others in ones community.

People who would not normally go into a pub alone (shyness, not wanting to appear obviously alone) will hopefully make friends in an environment where they know others are in the same boat. Then who knows? They might pop in anytime. BECAUSE they can! With luck this will complement other community activities as folk become confident and connected enough to join in.


 Visits are on the first Tuesday

of the month

2.00 to 4.00pm East View Car Park


They will provide the tea or coffee and cake!

Everyone welcome

There appears to have been a recent increase in the amount of dog fouling within West Suffolk.

If you are a dog owner or walker then you must pick up your dog's mess if it fouls in areas open to the public. This is a legal requirement as described under the Public Spaces Protection Order (Dogs) 2017. If you do not then you may be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice.

The Parish Council is aware that residents are kindly and regularly picking up litter around the village and disposing of it, something for which we are all very grateful.

We will not be arranging an annual community litter pick this year, however if you are interested in litter picking the area you live we are able to supply the West Suffolk Council branded sacks that can be left once full next to one of the litter bins in the village and will be collected when the bin is emptied. Please contact the clerk at freckenhamparishcouncil@hotmail.com for details of where you can collect the sacks. 


The Parish Council had traffic surveys carried out in July 2022, funded by locality grants.
