Search on to find Suffolk’s most active communities

On 12 September, Suffolk County Council and Suffolk Association of Local Councils launched their annual search to find the most active town and villages in Suffolk.

The idea behind the competition, now in its fifth year, is to recognise and celebrate the hard work that communities across Suffolk, both large and small, do to encourage their residents to be active.

It seeks to find the most active town, most active large village (population of more than 1,000) and most active small village (population of less than 1,000).

Besides the honour of being named as the most active town or village in Suffolk the winner from each category will receive an engraved brass plaque as a permanent recognition of their achievement.

In 2017 the award winners were Mendham and Withersdale Street, (who triumphed for the second year running) Shotley, Stradbroke and Kesgrave.

Entry forms for this year’s competition can be downloaded from The closing date for entries is Wednesday 17th October 2018.

Shortlisted communities from each category will be invited to the SALC AGM on the 6th November 2018 where the winners and runners up will be announced.
