Our Village

Village SignElmswell is a thriving, working village in Mid Suffolk with a population of some 3,000 + living in 1,776 households. There is local employment easily available and infrastructure factors such as the railway station, primary school, police and fire stations, shops and 2 pubs make it a 'sustainable' community, identified by the Suffolk County Council as a 'CS3' Village - one to which future development will be legitimately directed.
There is a lively network of community groups, societies and organisations. Given the inevitable pressures of development there is a strong political awareness, which means that the Parish Council must be both businesslike and competent but sensitive to changing moods across the whole spectrum of the community.

This website is hosted by Elmswell Parish Council to provide information on its structures and procedures but, as importantly, to provide a way into other Elmswell based sites which give some reflection of an active and dynamic community.

A new website has been launched to publicise local groups and events in all areas of Suffolk with an IP postcode.

Elmswell has its own page, so if you run a club/group in the village, or are interested in finding out more information on local activities, this website may be of interest to you.
