Jubilee Bridge Update

1 October 2021

The Jubilee Bridge over The Ravine has been closed to the public owing to needed and significant repairs. East Suffolk Council is managing the inspection and repairs and is liaising with Lowestoft Town Council. From time to time it is unavoidable that The Ravine itself must be closed for health and safety, inspection and interim repairs. The full repair programme is being carefully planned with the specialist support required for this important part of Lowestoft’s heritage.

Suffolk Local History Council Local Recorders

10 September 2021

Would you like to be the Local Recorder for the Suffolk Local History Council?

The Suffolk Local History Council runs a Local Recorders Scheme throughout Suffolk.  We administer a network of volunteers to ensure that the ‘present’ is adequately recorded at local level for the ‘future’.

A Local Recorder will note significant happenings in their parish and collect their local parish magazines, leaflets, election pamphlets and newspaper cuttings.  At the end of each year, they are asked to submit a short report summarising the activities of their parish.  The reports are deposited at the Suffolk Record Office and available to future researchers together with the collected items.

If you are interested, please look at the Recorders Pack by visiting www.slhc.org.uk, click on Recorders, then click on Recorders Pack in the text on the left hand side to acquaint yourself with the guidelines of the scheme.  You do not need to be a historian; you do not need any qualifications other than an interest in your parish.  In return you will receive a copy of the SLHC Newsletter and be invited to the annual conference specifically for Local Recorders.  To volunteer to help in this important work, please contact recorders@slhc.org.uk
