HAUGHLEY CHOIR GOES VIRTUAL

20200818 Haughley Choir

 

 

During lockdown we have all had to forgo things that in pre-Covid19 times we really enjoyed. For those of us in St Mary’s Haughley Choir we were no longer able to meet up. We weren’t allowed into the church to sing, our Festival Concert was cancelled as were our regular weekly practices. So for the choir, all seemed to be lost…… until we discovered the joys of virtual choir singing. We have not looked back since our first attempt and now have a whole series of virtual choir recordings under our belt.

 

The way it works is that Janet Sheldrake, our choir leader, records a backing track for our chosen choral piece, and that backing track is emailed to each singer together with the words and music. Singers then record their individual voices singing along with the backing track in the comfort of their own homes. They then email their individual recordings to David Fleetwood who “stitches” them all together using a clever piece of computer software. In the resulting “stitched together” recording it sounds like all the choir are in the same room, singing as one.

MID SUFFOLK DISTRICT COUNCIL - CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE 

In light of the coronavirus outbreak, we are working hard behind the scenes to protect our residents, staff and services and to respond to the situation.

 

You can find Babergh and Mid Suffolk’s response on our website here, which is updated regularly with any changes to our services.

 

As you may already be aware, as part of these changes, we have suspended our garden waste collections until further notice to allow us to prioritise essential collections (general rubbish, medical and recycling).

 

Of course, this isn’t a decision we take lightly, and we will continue to monitor the situation over coming weeks.

 

To help our residents and businesses, we have created a dedicated page on our website with the most up to date status of our collections during this time, and will continue to update this as required over the coming weeks.

 

You can find the page here, which includes advice on disposing waste for those self-isolating, as well as further information for garden waste subscribers.

 

Please do signpost residents to this page and encourage them to contact us online with any queries and we’ll respond as soon as we can. Where possible, our phone line should only be used by those without internet access while we deal with a high volume of calls at this unprecedented time.

 

There is also lots of further information on social media, to support our residents across Suffolk using #Covid19Suffolk.

 

We thank you for your help in continuing to support our residents, and for your patience and understanding during this period.

 URGENT PLEA

Littering of Bridleway/Footpath up to the old A14

 

After years of negotiations and hard work a bridleway/footpath was opened to provide a way for villagers, on foot, bicycles or horseback, to avoid a dangerous piece of road on the exit of Haughley up to the old A14, which has proved to be very popular.

Some of the many attendees at the Haughley Neighbourhood Plan Drop In Event also expressed a wish for a safe footpath to link with the new path and for the local footpaths network to be kept open.

Unfortunately it would appear that a minority are ruining things for everyone else by littering the new bridleway/footpath with metal cans, glass bottles, coffee containers and plastic bottles etc., thrown on the path and neighbouring road verge (which is a nature reserve).

This litter is a danger to people, their children, and pets, to horses and ponies and their riders, and to the local wildlife. The Parish Council would ask that users take their rubbish home, for the benefit and safety of others, on this and other paths in the area.

PLEASE HELP TO KEEP THIS VALUABLE ASSET SAFE AND USEABLE FOR EVERYBODY - THANK YOU
