Back in March 2020 Kersey Parish Council co-ordinated a group of local residents to support anyone who needed help during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the impact of COVID is reduced at the moment, the volunteers continue to be available should anyone need it. It is up to you to ask for help, so please do make contact with a volunteer. This may be help with:
• collecting prescriptions and medication
• posting mail
• delivering urgent supplies
• a friendly phone call
A paper flyer has been delivered to every house in Kersey with details of this scheme, along with names and telephone numbers for volunteers. If you have not received your flyer or you have lost it please contact the Clerk - Sarah Partridge to get another copy 01787 210859 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
With a population of around 350, the parish of Kersey consists of Kersey village and four hamlets: Kersey Tye, Kersey Upland, Wickerstreet Green and William’s Green. The village of Kersey, straddling a ford and up the slopes of a little valley with its church crowning the hill on the south side, is regarded as one of the most picturesque villages in East Anglia. While it possesses an important collection of medieval buildings, Kersey is also a vibrant community centred on its school, church, village hall and local pub.
Located between Ipswich, Sudbury and Lavenham, Kersey is situated amidst rolling Suffolk countryside. It is good walking country and the church, dating from the 12th century and pub are well worth a visit.
