Street Lighting

You will know from the leaflets that have dropped through doors recently that the County Council is making changes to street lighting in the village.  The Parish Council has received a number of plans which you can view by clicking on the links below.  They are not easy to understand but are explained in the Information Pack which can also be viewed by clicking the link below.

A public meeting will be held with the County Council’s contractor (Balfour Beatty) on Monday 3 November in the Village Hall meeting room at 6.30pm.  All residents are welcome to attend and to raise any queries or concerns.

Other streets – no changes to street lights as they are owned by the Parish Council and are not included in the County Council’s programme.

Sort out Christmas presents early this year and buy Panto tickets! Join the Ickleton Society at a Traditional Family Pantomime at the Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds. This year’s pantomime is Cinderella, by Peter Duncan.

Cinderella and her father live in the dilapidated Hardup Hall helped by the ever-reliable Buttons, and watched over by a Fairy Godmother. Then one day, two greedy stepsisters charge into their world and make things rather unpleasant! But with a glamorous ball on the horizon, and a chance meeting with a handsome stranger in the forest, are Cinderella’s fortunes about to change? And can she get home before midnight…?

Renowned for its traditional, fun-filled, family pantos, the Theatre Royal promises to serve up a sparkling festive treat filled with catchy songs, silly jokes, and a sprinkling of magic. Packed with dastardly villains, miraculous mice, swirling dresses and some stupendous slapstick, you’re sure to have a ball!

Built in 1819 this Grade 1 listed playhouse is the only surviving example of a Regency theatre in this country – well worth a visit for that reason alone!

Discounted Ticket Price: £18.50 per person for non-members (normal price £19.50). A further discount of £1 per ticket for each member of the Society and for families with family membership, a discount of £1 per ticket for each family member. We will also be giving surprise (sweet) treats to the children.

Travel: please make your own arrangements or we will help arrange car shares nearer the time.

To book, please call Lynn Parsons on 0781 639 4442. Payment required by Friday 28th November to confirm your booking. Tickets are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment! All children to be accompanied by a responsible adult please.
