The cycle ‘Tour of Britain’ comes through Dennington on Friday 8th September
The cycle ‘Tour of Britain’ comes through Dennington on Friday 8th September at roughly 1pm. They come from the Stradbroke direction and turn into the Framlingham road and head for Fram. We have decided to line the road next to the Green with bunting and those who wish to can gather to see them whizz through. We propose that we gather by 12.45. Tea and coffee will be available from the Clothes Peg and we will also have some ice cream and cones available for the children. The school will apparently be assembling the children in the green also to watch them go by, so why not join us??
They move through at some speed, so we expect the whole event to be over by 1.30 and everyone can head home for lunch.

Dennington – the home of Geoffrey Chaucer
Dennington is a charming village nestled in the countryside in rural Suffolk, not far from the town of Framlingham. Mentioned in the doomsday book and also the home of Geoffrey Chaucer and his family, Dennington has a long and fascinating history. The church is beautiful and remains the home of several fascinating historical artefacts, drawing visitors from around the world.
Dennington Jubilee Hall was constructed in 1985 and still remains unique in its genre. It is the only village hall with a full sized sports hall in the district.
Alongside it is the Sports Field, Tennis court and Bowls Club, all managed by the Sports Committee. Situated on the Framlingham Road just outside Dennington, both facilities offer an abundance of opportunity.
