The village hall is an excellent venue for both adults and children alike, with very clean facilities and an extremely friendly and welcoming atmosphere. I must say the new website is very informative and user friendly. I look forward to visiting the village hall again in the future. Mrs C Green

I have visited this hall on many occasions for a variety of events and have always found the facilities excellent. The bar is well stocked and the kitchen facilities are extremely good. The added bonus is a small childrens play area which I understand has plans for expansion. I would be very happy to recommend this hall.

Having moved to the village in recent years we have always experienced a warm and friendly welcome from the locals at all the events we have attended. The hall is very well kept by a loyal band of volunteers and offers a great venue for a wide range of functions. The surrounding 'commons' make this a very special rural environment and a lovely spot whether it be for a wedding reception, plant fair, table top sale, birthday celebration or party.

I lived between the old school and village hall , many moons ago. Just been around the great common to the churchyard. am so disappointed in how its kept now. And we will have to come back to sort my parents grave out as the grave diggers are once again trying to cover the grave :( They should respect it not abuse it, it moved me to tears!

Am sorry to read your comments, and have passed these to our Church Wardens. Could you please contact Rosemary Andrews (contact details listed under St Andrews Church) as she is a Church Warden and has the plan of the graves and could respond to you.

I am looking forward to visiting soon from Florida, USA. The patriarch of my family, Sheene Berry, lived in Ilketshall from 1704-1776 and is buried there. I hope we can find his grave. Could anyone help me find him? Thank you.

Excellent website - BUT I can't see any map or directions to tell me where the hall is! Have I missed it? Also I couldn't leave comments where it said to do so above.

Delighted to see the pictures of St. Andrew Church. The last time I was able to stop for a brief visit it was in a very sad condition.

Hi I spent some of my early youth living at Rosecott which my Grandfather had bought. he put in the first lighting there it was calor gas didnt have elec at that time. Loved to roam the common and used to love to knap flints in the pit at the bottom of the common. Still have the sea anoeme fossil which i found in the priest hole i discovered hidden between the chimney and the 2nd floor. I also found a silk topper in there as well but has since disinagreated. The path passed thrue our orchard on its way to the pub at the back diff ones would stop and help them selves on there way there couldnt stop them as it was aq public path. Sure miss the place loved the church at that time i was into climbing up church towers left in 1957 when we imigrated to the US.

It was exciting to come across this web site as my great-great grandfather Baily Bird was born in August of 1840 here along with his parents before him. Unfortunately his father passed in July of the same year 1840. I would love to find more information out about this area or of them. To whom should I seek for such information?

Many moons ago, Ilketshall Community & Parish Council granted me the opportunity to run a Youth Project from the Village Hall. Back in 1987 I was was fledgling Youth Leader in Charge but we made the front cover of Suffolk Association of Youth's Annual report for two years running. This was quite an achievement For an amateur project I gave the kids freedom and sense of belonging and achievement through empowerment, This could never have been achieved without the kindness and respect from the Parish & Community Council. Sadly I had to wind-up S.A.Y. ( St Andrews Youth) to train and study Youth & Community at a Professional level n the 1990's. It was not an easy decision after 3 years of dedication. My son grew up in the village and his friends parents were the kids I worked with. Happy memories and a great foundation to build my future upon. I hope I did okay for the kids.. Thank you Illektshall St Andrew, Rick (the Punk Rocker)
