A talk on a Suffolk town’s ‘Great War Centenary Project’ will be held as the latest in a series of events in aid of a new community kitchen.

Mark Brennan, chairman of the Hadleigh British Legion, will be talking on Saturday morning about the work undertaken with a Lottery grant to commemorate those from the town who died during the First World War.

The project includes a children’s visit to war graves in France a “shower or poppies” from Hadleigh church tower and a display on the railings in High Street.

The event is part of a series of talks organised by Hadleigh town councillors to raise money for a new kitchen in the Guildhall complex. Previous topics of discussion have included ‘Hadleigh, an Ancient Market Town’, ‘International Women’s Day’ and ‘Hadleigh in the 60s’.

Saturday’s talk will take place from 10.30am in the Guildhall. Further talks are scheduled to take place until the end of the year.

A jackknifed lorry has caused major traffic delays on the A14 in west Suffolk this morning.

The 90-year-old man who was found with serious injuries at the Suffolk home where his wife’s lifeless body was discovered, has also died.

Suffolk County Council has vowed to tackle period poverty – but fell short of committing cash to the cause.

A former Bury St Edmunds man accused of sexually assaulting three schoolgirls more than two decades ago has been cleared by a jury.

Crimes including theft and weapons possession have risen more sharply in Suffolk and Essex than on average across the rest of the country.

An inquest has been opened and adjourned into the death of a 22-year-old high risk missing person from Hartest.

The tragic death of a woman in a crash on the A12 has sparked further calls for the road’s safety issues to be tackled.
