A west Suffolk community will gather to enjoy Christmas carols next week in what is hoped will be the start of a series of village events.

Residents in Flempton and Hengrave are being invited to attend the Carols on Flempton Green event on December 11.

The event is being organised by resident Dan Boughton alongside Flempton-cum-Hengrave Parish Council and is backed by £440 of locality budget funding from St Edmundsbury Borough Council ward member Susan Glossop.

Mr Boughton said: “I’ve only recently moved to Flempton from Bury St Edmunds but I wanted to help organise events that will really bring the community together.

“I hope that Carols on the Green not only becomes an annual event, but also part of a series of events throughout the year that will bring residents of Flempton and Hengrave out together to socialise and make new friends.”

Mayor of St Edmundsbury Terry Clements will be attending the event, which will also include a Christmas lights switch-on.

Mrs Glossop said: “This will be a great opportunity for the residents to get together and meet all the new people who have moved into the villages.
