A working rural community set amidst quiet rolling countryside yet within 45 minutes of Norwich, Ipswich and the beautiful Suffolk coast. Elegant old buildings, a magnificent church and plenty of footpaths.
Stradbroke is a thriving village.
The stradbroke.org.uk independent website is here for villagers and organisations to share information about their interests, fundraising events, etc... The site also works really hard to bring visitors and villagers the latest news and information of interest to locals near and far! Join today!
Well, very little to talk about from this meeting. Nothing about the Co-op, nothing much about Grove Farm, nothing about websites other than the councils continuing confusion on whether there is an official website or not. Does anyone care?

All thirteen seats on Stradbroke Parish Council are up for re-election on Thursday 7th May 2015 in a contest that looks set to be much more interesting than the General Election to be held on the same day!

If you live or work in Stradbroke, are 18 or over and are on the Electoral Register you should be eligible to stand, you can check the eligibility guide to be sure.
To stand for election is simple. You just need to fill in a form, get a proposer and seconder who are Stradbroke residents aged 18 or older on the electoral register to sign and ensure it is handed in to the District Council by the closing date…Continue
We would like to invite as many past and present staff, children and governors to the school for our open 150th birthday celebration on Wednesday 8th July 2015 from 3.30pm to 6.30pm.
This will be an opportunity to see the school as it is now and share memories of the past. As part of the event we will bury a time capsule in the school grounds.
