Worlingworth Survey – Thank you to all participants

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to complete the survey. The data is now being analysed and it will enable the Parish Council to start planning future strategies for the village. There are plans to have a presentation on the findings of the survey at the Community Centre on Wednesday 21st February 2018.

Register your white goods to reduce fire risk

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service are urging people to check their white goods and are recommending that people register their appliances in case of recalls. Damage and severity of a fire, should one occur, is dramatically reduced if they are not left running while everyone is asleep or out of the house as early indicators of potential risks can be quickly noticed, In 2016/17 in Suffolk, there were 29 incidents caused by white goods – to date in 2017/18, there have been 11. Please register your appliances at This online safety initiative, supported by fire services and government, covers nearly 90% of white goods brands. You can register appliances new and up to 12 years old so if there’s a safety recall you can be contacted - particularly poignant in light of the Grenfell Tower disaster, which it is believed may have started with a faulty appliance.

Parking in the village
The Parish Council has received a number of complaints about parking in the village, with cars and vans being parked too close or opposite junctions and driveways (making turns difficult and dangerous), parking on bends (restricting views) and parking on pavements (causing problems for pedestrians). Please think carefully and be considerate in the way that you park your vehicles, remembering that highway code rule 248 states that at night must not park facing against the direction of traffic flow.

Welcome to our New Councillors

The Parish Council is once again back up to a full complement of Councillors, with Andrew Nunn and Mike Howard having been co-opted to the Council at the November meeting.
