Permissive Footpath Open Again
The footpath beside the brook at Brook Farm (between Cock Lane and Town Hill) has been reopened; a condition of use is that dogs must be kept under control at all times, and walkers must clear up after them, too. Karen Marshall ( Brent Eleigh PC Footpaths & Environment) also asks everyone to pick up any litter they see until an official 'litter pick' can be held when vegetation has died back.

The Licensing Team at Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils, are currently working with the Mid Suffolk Disability Forum, to understand how wheelchair users, and those with reduced mobility, use taxis in the districts.
We want to ensure they are accessible for everyone, so whether you’re a wheelchair user yourself or support, or know someone else who is, please do take part or encourage others to fill out our quick 5 mins survey to share their views.
The feedback will play an important role in developing our future taxi policy and tariff changes.
