It has been such a difficult year for everybody in many different ways! We heard the plight of a local young lady’s family, like many, facing challenging times trying to raise vast sums of money for her medical treatment.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a small revised ”Rainbow Fun Run’’ took place for the Year 6’s..

The 38th annual 10k road race around Woodbridge took place on Sunday the 19th May.

Congratulations to Aaron for beating David ….again! Great rivalry exists between the two of them when most are just happy to finish.
Well done to everyone, but we have to say Bill (769) came an impressive 100th in a time of 53:05mins which was the fastest time in our whole team!
Sunday the 19/05/19 we have entered another team of 10 at £750.
Some of them have been putting in some training, others haven’t!!!
Come & cheer us on, it’s a great day organised by the Woodbridge Shufflers and all for some worthy Charities.

Mark is a local born & bred craftsman who completed a City & Guilds qualification in Carpentry &Joinery at Ingram Smiths.
His father has a history of boatbuilding too taking a boat building course in the 1960’s at Whisstocks, so Mark & his 88 year old dad take great delight in being part of the Woodbridge Riverside Trust who have developed this community space for boat building.
Mark, Ruth & their family are great Ipswich Town supporters & were delighted to be sponsoring the under 12 Woodbridge Football Team raising £750.00.
The under 12’s had an amazing season winning the Division 1 league & are now entering into the Eastern Junior AllianceLeague whereby they will be travelling the length & breadth of the South East to play a higher level of football……..lets hope they do better than Ipswich & we will be attending as many games as possible.
We are always happy to help local causes when possible & so when The Friends of St. Mary’s School Woodbridge organised a ‘Rainbow FunRun’, we donated £250 to raise money for a new library.
The children had an amazing time & got covered in paint in the process!
Congratulations to them.
On 20th May 2018 Chapel Properties sponsored & entered a team of 8 to run the Woodbridge 10k for the 3rd year running raising £750.
The sun shone & the crowds turned out to cheer the runners on, a great day was had by all.
To add fuel to the competitiveness amongst our team of runners we are stating that Aaron Sharp won, followed closely by David Kershaw, well done lads. There is already much talk about next year’s race!
