Village Hall Press Release  wren press release

18th November 2017

Last night at 7.30 pm there was a potentially horrendous accident on the
dangerous stretch of road we discussed at a parish council meeting 2-3
months ago in Geldeston.

Police and ambulances were called; when they suspected that little
Alesha (8 years old) might have suffered internal injuries and a broken
pelvis, even the Air Ambulance was summoned and landed nearby. Mrs Lisa
Tuttle was driving home to Geldeston from shopping at Morrison’s in
Beccles with four of her small children when some irresponsible
character drove straight into her, at a speed estimated to be around 70
mph. The airbags saved the Tuttle family: the car is a write-off.


Sponsored Skydive to support Geldeston Lock project


Geoff Doggett, founding trustee of the River Waveney Trust, is risking life, limb and reputation in doing a skydive from 13,000 feet from Ellough airfield near Beccles. The event will take place on SATURDAY. Geoff is passionate about maintaining the navigation and lock for future generations to see and enjoy. He hopes you will share the work of the Beccles volunteers of the RWT and support with a generous donation.

So, please support Geoff by donating as much as you can. The total raised so far is £3,600 and the target is £4,000 (or more!). Giftaid will add a further 25% to your donation if you are a UK taxpayer. Click on MyDonate for easy commission free donation.
