Suffolk Village of the Year 2023

Clean Up Cockfield 2024

Love where we live logoThis year our annual litter pick of public areas, verges and public footpaths will concentrate on the weekend of 23rd and 24th March.

 Pickers, jackets and bags will be  available from Cockfield Hall Barn from 23rd March, please drop your ‘pickings’ off at the barn when you return your equipment, so a photo can be taken of it all. The rubbish will be collected from the barn by Babergh sometime early the following week.

As last year the Village has been divided into pickable sections as shown in the table below. When someone volunteers to pick a section, it will be marked as Allocated on the table.

To register your interest in your preferred section or sections please email Steve Ball at .

Guidelines for volunteer litter pickers can be found in
