Haverhill Echo ten years ago

Echo, July 22, 2004


Forty teenagers were to lose out after it was announced a learning centre set up just a year earlier was to close.

Managers at national education and training company Education and Youth Services, which ran the Haverhill centre based at the rugby club in School Lane, had only recently signed a three year lease and spent £60,000 on refurbishment.

The closure was blamed on lack of funding from the Suffolk Learning and Skills Council.


Burials in Hundon could in future take place on the village cricket pitch if proposals raised at a meeting get the go ahead.

Villagers voted in favour of the Glebe Meadow, which was used by the cricket club, being used as an extension to the churchyard, with 51 supporting the suggestion and 26 opposing.

It was revealed at the meeting that only 17 plots remained in the churchyard. It was also estimated that they would all be filled within three years.

Hundon Parish Council was due to discuss the proposal put forward by the Parochial Church Council at a later date.
