Co-op green tokens for Village Hall

Felixstowe Co-op (Solar) have accepted Kirton & Falkenham Village Hall into their token scheme. If you are a Co-op member or shop at the Co-op you will know that they offer green tokens at the till which you can put in the appropriate box. At the end of the 3 months the charity with the most tokens receives £500 with the other two receiving smaller amounts. It would be great if you could put your green tokens into the K&F Village Hall box, thanks! Read More...

Trimley railway station

The Network Rail scheme to increase capacity on the Felixstowe branch line has recently been completed. Work commenced in April, 2018 and, during this time, the line was closed on Saturday evenings and all day Sunday most weekends. Part of the project included a 1.25 km stretch of double track from Trimley station to Grimston Lane and a new pedestrian bridge at Gun Lane - officially opened early last month. The trains are now back to normal and the weekend services have been fully restored.

The next big event is the arrival of brand new class 755 bi-mode trains. Although their introduction appears to be taking longer than was planned by Greater Anglia, five are currently operating in Norfolk. Hopefully, in the not too distance future, we shall see them in Suffolk.
