Needham Market Society

The committee of Needham Market Society continues to respond to planning matters on behalf of the community, with a recent letter objecting to the proposed Barking Road housing project.

We regretfully had to cancel most of our 2020 talks programme and now also the talks scheduled for January 20 and March 24. However, we hope that normal life may resume soon so we have put May and September speakers on hold, depending on the community centre being open. So please members, read the emails and scan the noticeboards for details of any possible NMS events over the spring and summer.

We are losing our chairperson, Andrea Davies, and our secretary, Stella, in September, so we offer an open invitation to join our committee and play a part in working in the interests and well-being of Needham Market town and community.

On a completely different theme, the disappearance of the middle school group photos. The photos disappeared after being on display at the ‘Archive Day’ held in 2019. The society was responsible for their custody and would very much like to know where they are and have them safely returned.

Please phone Andrea on 01449 721056 if you can help.
