New Heating System

Heating is not glamorous but without it is hard to be comfortable in any building for much of the year. Our heating system is obsolete and failing. We hope to replace it with a new environmentally friendly system as early in the New Year as we can, but first we need to pay for it. The vision and story of St. John’s and how you can help is described in the leaflet below.

Living History Scenes

Some pictures of one of the Living History scenes, featuring Alice and Richard Frere, whose family owned 'Caltofts' in the seventeenth century. This was perfoemed on the front steps of St John's while there was other sences going on in the town.

We had heritage animals -  with cute, little bantams in the churchyard, sheep on the market place and a Suffolk Punch in the yard of the Cap. And we had glorious weather!  We couldn't ask for more.
