Deben Flower Club

Deben Flower Club (flower arranging) meet on the second Tuesday of the month in the Church Hall. We hope to restart meetings in September but have a drop in session in the Church Hall on Saturday 14th August 2.30pm, to 4.30pm for tea and cake. If you are an existing member please try to come along to meet old friends and tell us how you would like to see the club operate "post" Covid, or if you are interested in joining please come to meet the committee and find out what we are all about. If out around the village why not combine it with a visit to the WI at the same time. More cake is never a bad thing! Read More...

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:

Do you want to feel more relaxed? Perhaps you’re not as flexible or as strong as you’d like to be? Come along and try yoga at the Pavilion on the Recreation Ground. Yoga builds flexibility and strength in our bodies and encourages a resilient and peaceful mind. First class free of charge. Classes are for anyone, whatever your level of fitness, age or ability.  
 Anne, our teacher, has a wealth of experience. She’s been teaching locally for nearly 10 years and has been practising yoga for more than 30 years. She’s used to supporting beginners and those with restricted movement. Have a look at her website for testimonials   -

Kirton & Trimley Community Action Group

I have to start this article by acknowledging the huge contribution to our Community’s welfare being made by Graham Walker, Jack Cade and members of the Kirton Parish Council. These guys were massive when it came to warning us of significant local issues. Indeed, were it not for their public meeting on 24th August, the Kirton and Trimley Community Campaign Group (KATCAG) would not have been formed. We should be thanking you all every time you show your faces in the village!!

In the event, KATCAG is now motoring. We decided to join forces with our Trimley colleagues at an early stage because we found so many cyclical arguments were being employed by proponents of the Draft Local Plan. T

Kirton and Falkenham Toddler Group Kirton and Falkenham Toddler Group Kirton and Falkenham Toddler Group

Kirton and Falkenham Toddler Group
I have been helping Emma, who is the mum who currently runs Kirton and Falkenham Toddler Group, during this last year. We finished the year by giving all the children, who attended the last session a lovely book each that had been donated by the Felixstowe Salvation Army. I have found it to be a lovely friendly group of regular parents / grandparents with babies and toddlers each week. Emma does a great job of running the group and has set up a Facebook page to show what is available and keep people up to date with what is happening. In the good weather we are able to use the grass area that is fenced off by the hall and are grateful to Kirton Parish Council who gave a donation which was used to buy outside play equipment.

On the
2nd Thursday each month the health visitors attends to do baby weights and chat if you have any concerns with your toddlers/babies. During a session you will find we have a craft table, a baby play area and various other toys and activities about the hall. We give the children juice and a biscuit half way through the session when they are all encouraged to sit together and at this time there is coffee and tea available for the adults. At the end of the session it is lovely to see the children help tidy away to cries from their parents of why cant they be this enthusiastic at home. We meet every Thursday from 1pm - 3pm The session costs £2 per family (1 adult and up to 3 children) each additional child is 50p.

We are looking for New Members all the time to replace existing members as they move off to nursery and school, to ensure that this group can continue to run for the benefit of the local community. Without your support we could lose this valuable group as we need to be able to cover the running costs and have the help to run the group.
Come and join this lovely friendly local group.
