Great Waldingfield

Market Hill and St Peter’s Church, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 2EA

10am – 4pm, free entry

The Taste of Sudbury is a fantastic annual food & drink festival, held in the centre of town and aimed at celebrating, promoting and showcasing the very best producers, restaurants, chefs and food industries that we are so lucky to have in this part of Suffolk. 

Held on Sunday June 11th, this year’s event is looking better than ever. We have a fantastic line up of chefs ready to take to the new kitchen theatre stage throughout the day including bread making by the fabulous Will Wooster, mouth-watering demos from the hugely talented James Carn, head chef at The Angel Hotel, Bury St Edmunds, Regis Crepy of The Great House and Oliver Macmillan of The Long Melford Swan.

Over forty of the region’s best producers will be filling Market Hill and St Peters with delicious, mouth-watering products and there will be plenty of free tasters and samples.

Entry to the event is free of charge, parking in the town is also free and there is a free park and ride system in place all day.

Come out and support Sudbury’s finest event in its fifth fabulous year and put us firmly on the map of the Foodie County!

With both the Government and Local Authorities using the internet to gauge views, run consultations, being notified of issues and running the Local Planning Authority’s systems there is a need to provide local residents with both the technology to access these services and the opportunity to be shown how to use the services.

Village resident Keith Watson has volunteered to run an IT HUB twice a week in the conference room at the Village Hall. He will be looking to provide a service that residents require so please pop along and let him know if there is anything else that you would like added to the service.


We bid a fond adieu to Ian and Shirley Black and thank them for their remarkable efforts in charge of the Village Shop over the last 14 years. We hope they have a long and happy retirement, and that  they'll soon adjust to not having to get up every day soon after most of us have just gone to bed!

We would also like to welcome Mr. & Mrs. Ameerathan who are taking over from Ian and Shirley. We wish them success and hope they enjoy working and living in Great Waldingfield.
