The Spirit of Lavenham

Most thriving communities have the benefit of effort made by volunteers – generous people who freely give their time and skills to improve the place they live in. Lavenham is such a place. Each year hundreds of our residents are involved in various forms of voluntary service – for some people this is for a few hours a year and for others volunteering is a regular commitment. Although we have plenty of volunteers we can always use more! The voluntary roles are varied and some of the local groups are actively seeking new volunteers.

You may have a skill, we do not yet know, we need! So, if you are looking to contribute to the community but cannot find a suitable place or organisation to make use of your energy and enthusiasm, please contact Councillor Mary Morrey at
