At approximately 6.30pm on 4th January, a hit and run incident occurred on Ufford's High Street.
The offending vehicle was a silver coloured family saloon, travelling from the Wickham Market direction at well over 30mph. It hit a stationary vehicle 2 houses down from the Crown Public House. Unfortunately the driver was still inside the stationary vehicle and has sustained injuries.
The offending vehicle did not brake before the impact or stop after the incident but must have sustained substantial damage. Please can you keep an eye out for the car having been abandoned in the village.
If you find the vehicle or have any information that you feel may assist the police please call 101 and quote incident 322 040118 (PC Daniel Ormes) or call Jo on 07775 542453.
We wish the person involved in the incident a speedy recovery
Ufford Parish Council would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
At their November meeting, UPC set the Grant amounts for 2018. We are delighted to award the following grants:
We have received reports of a man entering a property in Lower Street, uninvited. He might be described as a 'Hawker' but it was unclear as to what he was selling.
He is described as a white male, 5' 10'', UK accent but not a traditional Suffolk one. The house owner is incapacitated at present so didn't see the vehicle he was driving and he left quickly.
If you experience an incident such as this please contact the police by calling 101. It may be an innocent sales person selling his wears, however, it may also be someone with other intensions.
Woods Lane in Melton is to be closed for a significant number of weeks; please see message below from Suffolk County Council:
