Wickham Market Parish Council Website


Wickham Market is a friendly, thriving community of around 1700 people.  We have our own local school, library, GP surgery, dentist, library, shops (including a World renown quilting shop) and village hall.  We are uniquely placed in a semi rural setting yet only half an hour from Ipswich, 90 minutes by train from London and well served by public transport.

Please use this site to gain information on what is being discussed by the Parish Council, local news, events, local businesses, clubs and societies in Wickham Market. And if you would like to promote your own local charity, business or event, please contact Jo Jones (Parish Clerk on wickhammarketparishclerk@gmail.com or 01394 459400 so that we can help you to make it a success.  If you are an organisation and would welcome volunteers or you yourself want to be a volunteer, please go to our Volunteer page.

Wickham Market Primary School is looking for people who could spend a couple of hours a week to listen to some of the school children read.  Training will be given and you will need to go through a CRB check (the school arranges and pays for this). The children are great and enjoy the valuable experience. If you are interested, please e-mail wickham.admin@avocetacadamy.org.  

Could you offer support to a family raising young children? Home-Start  - a brilliant organisation- is looking for volunteers. For more information click on Home-Start.
