Bucklesham Highly Commended at Suffolk Community Awards

The Suffolk Community Awards, on 25th September, featured Bucklesham nominated for Small Village of the Year Award. We are pleased to announce that the village was awarded ‘Highly Commended’.

We are proud to have our second development forming in a location and community that is clearly very special. The residents that move into our Bucklesham development can be assured that they will be joining a thriving village community.

The judges said of Bucklesham: “What a great place to live and definitely a village punching above its weight. The Judges were impressed and inspired by the benefits the residents of this village experience, and it is clear it is as a result of all the efforts of representatives and volunteers working hard in a variety of ways, including successful funding bids for various projects. The resulting wealth of activities, provision and enhancement of much valued community assets demonstrated a focus on wellbeing, and it was clear they made sure no one was left out. The flourishing Village Hall is even open on Christmas Day!”

Chair of the Bucklesham Parish Council, David Brinkley, collected the award on behalf of the village. “I felt very proud and privileged to collect the award on behalf of all the residents of Bucklesham. Whilst I accepted the award, I honestly did so with a great deal of modesty. The Parish Councillors past and present have all contributed as a true team, each with their own skills which are expertly mashed together by Ruth, our Parish Clerk. I hope it gives each of them, as well as all of the other volunteers within our community from the Village Hall Committee, the Community Council, the Friends of the Playing Field (FOPs), the Church and all the organisers of the many groups and societies, the satisfaction that their contribution in all that they do has not gone unrecognised. Huge thanks to you all.”
