Suffolk Village of the Year 2023

Community Council September News

I’ve always thought that, weather wise, the first half of September is often the best part of the year. After all, everyone’s back from their holidays and the kids are back at school…..I’ve been around for a few years and my theory is based upon a certain amount of experience! So I was neither surprised nor disappointed when Sunday 11th dawned fair and the 2016 Cockfield Show was blessed with a brilliant cloudless late summer day. Between two and three hundred people made the journey to Clipt Bushes garden which looked glorious in the sunshine. Along with our produce and handicrafts show and a wide array of stalls, we were entertained by the children of Cockfield School who showed us how to dance around a maypole. Unfortunately not all the spectators were paying attention as, when their turn came, the result can only be described as chaos – still everyone enjoyed themselves and thanks to the School for putting on this display. This was followed by our Zumba Group who made us all feel exhausted through their energetic routines – there was audience participation here too which I won’t even try to describe. The tug of war was great fun and both young and old (and in between) were captivated by the Punch & Judy show. All in all a great afternoon for the village and thanks are due to everyone who organised, loaned facilities and equipment,  helped, performed and attended.
