As a resident of Monks Eleigh for all of my 67 years, I remember a lot of things about our village.
When I was a child, my parents, along with many others, were actively involved in the raising of funds and physically building our present Coronation Hall.
Over the years, the Monks Eleigh recreation ground has been used regularly for all manner of sporting events and, of course, the church fete.
The recreation ground has been developed and now has a multi-use games area provided by the youth club as well as swings, a climbing frame and other children’s play equipment.
Until this year, no-one ever suggested there was any problem with traffic safety to this venue.
This only happened when a group within the village decided to petition Babergh District Council to stop the parish council’s application to build a village hall on the recreation ground.
If this is such a dangerous road, how have the children and youth club managed to negotiate it for so many years without any accidents?
I am very saddened by the atmosphere generated in the village of late.
