If we were to award a village prize for
Archdeacon Sally Gaze’s “40 DAYS of
KINDNESS” Suffolk Lightwave initiative, it
would go to Margaret Mouzer who spoke to her
friend and neighbour Eleanor Abbott four times
every day for more than a year until Eleanor
went into Mills Meadow last month. Eleanor
was the first person to welcome Margaret (and
her famed collection of mice) to Saxtead when
she moved from her tied farm in Framlingham,
and Margaret certainly repaid the kindness a

In a second Suffolk Lightwave initiative
Saxtead has supported the Thank you
hampers which were given last week to
several local schools and a doctors surgery
to thank them for their work during lockdown.
We initiated a hamper for Earl Soham School
and the support and generosity of the
community, and from John Hutton the butcher,
has been amazing. We received lovely letters
from the Headmaster and Administrator to say
how touched and encouraged the staff were to
see how much they were appreciated by us all.

The Rev Mary Lamb’s vision is to fill St
Michael’s Framlingham with butterflies to
celebrate the risen Lord and new life this
Easter. We in Saxtead have joined this project
with a children’s butterfly competition and
nearly 20 children have entered. Their entries will be
displayed on the windows of Saxtead church,
which is open, from Maundy Thursday to
Easter Monday. There will be an Easter egg
hunt in Saxtead churchyard with one basket
per child for Saxtead children -. The baskets
will be there from 10.30 to 4.00pm on Easter
Day, 4th April.
