Ed’s September Bugle comment

September is the start of the new school year. Children could be starting a new primary school in Reception, a new Secondary school in Year 7 and a new class at any stage. Dusting out the cobwebs of a long, hot summer break and down to some new learning experiences. We, at the Bugle team, […]

Bildeston Community Support

Bildeston Community Support is really concerned about the effect of rising fuel prices and how it is already affecting some of our local residents. At least four Bildeston families went without heating oil last winter. Numbers of families we support through the foodbank are steadily growing and the battle to heat AND (not or) eat […]

Citizen’s Advice Mid Suffolk

The cost of energy and food is so high now. I’m worried about how I’ll put food on the table. I’m on a prepayment meter and I’m really scared we’re going to be left without any gas or electric if I can’t top up. What can I do? First of all, I’m really sorry to […]

The news that Dr Beale was leaving has forced the practice to consider all aspects of the way in which it cares for all its patients. Until now patients at Bildeston Health Centre have been relatively fortunate as Drs Hainsworth, Clarke […]

Ukraine appeal update

Firstly I would like to thank the various organisers of functions in the village where a collection has been made for the Ukraine Appeal and given to EPIC, the charity I work for. I am very grateful for all the gifts and interest shown in this local effort. I have just returned from a trip […]

Jubilee fun day thanks

Myself and the team who organised the Jubilee Funday were thrilled to see so many of you supporting the event and having a good time, although the weather turned on us about 4.30pm. The hot dogs and burgers were a big hit and so were the teas and cakes, everyone had a go on the […]

Ed’s Comment – April Bugle

We thought, hoped, we would never see the like again Refugee Blues W. H. Auden written in 1939 Say this city has ten million souls, Some are living in mansions, some are living in holes: Yet there’s no place for us, my dear, yet there’s no place for us. Once we had a country and […]
