Local List Publicity

We have recently succeeded in convincing Babergh District Council to accept an update to the Sudbury Local List – a description of architecturally and/or historically significant properties and places in Our Town – originally prepared by the Society in 2014. We are very proud of our Local List and urge everyone to take a look… a  press release was circulated at the end of March and appeared in local press including the Sudbury & Long Melford Community News.

The Society’s 2019 AGM took place on Thursday 21st March at All Saints Church Hall at 7pm. Following activity reports by the current Executive Committee and election of new officers, a fascinating and informative talk was given by Professor Pamela Cox, Dept of Sociology, University of Essex as seen on the BBC TV series ‘Servants, Shopgirls and Sex Work : Hidden Histories’.
