Great news! We have started the organisation for the 2022 Wildflower Festival on the 30th and 31st July, this year, more than ever, it will be a wonderful occasion in high summer, to come together, celebrate as a community, enjoy nature, and showcase our wonderful local talent and creativity at its very best.
We are writing to seek volunteers to ‘adopt a window’ in the church to decorate! Our theme for the festival this year is ‘Long May She Reign…. Celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee’. We have twelve wonderful titles for the windows for you to choose from. We appreciate that many of you have a favoured window that you may wish to choose, and we are also hoping that there will some new volunteers to ‘adopt a window’. You may choose however you wish to decorate and display, the focus and importance is ‘village contribution’ and involvement, you are not required to be an expert!
We are also seeking volunteers to help on the two days, please let us know if you would be willing to help.
So please do have a look at the window plan in the Church diagram below and let us know if you would like to volunteer to ‘adopt a window’, have any specific one in mind or are happy for us to try and accommodate everyone and work it out!

Recreational surveys – Sizewell C project
---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: Sizewell C email@example.com>
Date: Fri, 1 Apr 2022 at 11:00
Subject: Recreational surveys – Sizewell C project
To: Westleton Parish Council firstname.lastname@example.org>
We are writing to make your council aware of survey work that will shortly be carried out on existing Public Rights of Way in the area, in relation to the proposed Sizewell C nuclear power project.
We would be grateful if you could make your chair and councillors aware of this work, in case they receive any queries.
These surveys aim to gather information on the levels of recreational use of sites around the proposed Sizewell C site. This will be achieved through face-to-face questionnaires, where staff will approach people within the area to ask them a series of questions about their recreational use of the area.
They are proposed to commence at several locations on existing Public Rights of Way and in areas of open access over the next few weeks.
We will continue to monitor key locations surrounding Sizewell C throughout the construction phase and into the operational phase, helping to ascertain the effects of the project on recreational use, if planning permission is given. The current activity is intended to provide a baseline of data ahead of construction. This will inform decision-making on whether further mitigations are necessary.
The questionnaire surveys will be carried out in areas of open public access, during daylight hours.
This survey work does not assume that planning permission will be granted for Sizewell C, as this is currently being considered by the Secretary of State, nor does it indicate work is beginning on the construction of the project.
We intend to keep the inconvenience or disruption to people in the area to a minimum.
If you have any questions about this work, please contact the Sizewell C Project Team through the Community Freephone line on 0800 197 6102 or by emailing: email@example.com.
