This is an informal group looking into the heritage of Campsea Ashe but is open to all. It started in 2010 by a small group of enthusiastic people who have an interest in the heritage and history of the village. The Project has been generously funded by the Your Heritage Lottery Fund, as well as Wickham Market Outreach project and Suffolk Open Weekend.
The group is interested in oral history and also in collecting resources that help them learn more about the village and the people who have made it what it is. They are also working on a number of new research projects that will help to make the resources available to as many people as possible, either through displays in the Church, or via the website. If you would like to find out more about the village, please visit the website at www.campseaashechurch.org.uk
If you would like to know more about the Heritage Group, attend their meetings or would like to do some research for yourself, please contact them through the above website and let them know.
Station House Community Connections
Station House Community Connections is now the registered name of the charitable organisation which worked to transform the Station House into a new community and station facility. The information gathered from the village, passenger and business surveys in April 2012 informed the design process, so we hope there is something for everyone to make use of and enjoy.
At the Station House you will find a cafe, good quality Wifi and broadband, meeting rooms, information on the local area and a history of the East Suffolk Railway. It also provides a service to railway users travelling on the East Suffolk Line between Ipswich and Lowestoft. Station House Community Connections, which runs the Station House, is a Charitable Community Benefit Society. It was established in 2013 to raise the funds to renovate and refurbish the building which had been empty and derelict for 10 years. The cafe is open Monday - Friday 6.00am to 6.00pm, Saturday 6.30am to 6.00pm and Sun 8.30am to 6.00pm. Meeting rooms are available from Monday to Friday 7.00am to 9.00pm, Saturday 9.00am to 9.00pm and Sunday 9.00am to 6.00pm.
