Firstly I would like to thank Becky Cuthbert, who many of you may know, for letting me share her very personal story on page 5. It is a story of resilience and tenacity and as Becky says “if it helps just one person it will be worth it”.
As summer draws to a close there are still events to look forward to. The Long Shop have a Motor Cycle day on 11th September and a Festival of Food & Drink on 15th & 16th October. Also the LTAA have come to the rescue, kindly providing a new venue for the popular Leiston community Arts & Craft Fair on the 18th September – we clearly have many talented people locally, why not go along and maybe find some early Christmas gifts or just treat yourself?
The first of three new squares (Church Square) planned for Leiston is now complete and is already being well used. A welcome transformation of a neglected area! (See page 5). East Suffolk Council have recently appointed a Regeneration Manager, Richard Best, to look at the development of a Master plan to bring together all local initiatives – a very positive move!
What a great turn-out for the Jubilee weekend! The Leiston Events team, volunteers and local businesses once again provided a fantastic community event enjoyed by all. I believe this is the current team’s last such effort but hopefully someone will take the reins and continue their sterling work. Well done all!
