East Suffolk Garden Waste service

Blue & Green bin collections

This is set to return to normal as from Monday 28th September, in accordance with the original bin collection dates.
This means that households who subscribe to the service will once again have their garden waste bins collected on the same day as their recycling bins. 

We also serve, who stand apart.

We also serve, who stand apart.

Let us stand apart,
Many can’t be with us
because they’re trying to save lives
or supporting others.

Let us keep the gap,
then they can each take heart,
when they see us standing apart,
as we give them a thankful clap.

We must give each other space,
it’s not too much they ask,
So, let us all with good grace,
perform this simple task.

It’s said that by example,
one should take the lead,
and clearly, in Kirton and Falkenham
We are all doing,
Very well indeed.

So, let’s keep it up dear friends,
and on Thursdays, let our applause,
be heard for miles and miles
We are serving,
a life-saving cause!

Children's Society

THE CHILDREN’S SOCIETY has suspended all Box Holder activity for the time being.
Maddy Rhodes, co-ordinator for Kirton & Falkenham, usually holds a Box Opening coffee morning in July/August when the boxes are opened and the money collected is sent to the Society.

This probably won’t happen this year. The Children’s Society is going to miss out on the approx £700 which we collect annually. Anyone wishing to send a donation individually can do so through The Children’s Society website:
