Great Thurlow and Little Thurlow Villages
Great Thurlow and Little Thurlow are adjacent villages situated in the south-west corner of Suffolk within a few miles of both Cambridgeshire and Essex. The villages have a rich documented history which can be found in the Publications section of this website. Each village has retained a separate identity with its own Parish Council and church. The villages each have populations of just over 200 and are served by a school, pub and garage and share a village hall and sports field. The dominant natural feature is the River Stour which sustains within it many kinds of fish and attracts a wide range of birds and animals.
The Thurlow Cock - Questionnaire
Recently The Thurlow Cock was registered with the Borough Council as an Asset of Community Value (ACV). This provides the pub with some degree of protection to continue its operation as a public house. In the event that the pub is listed for sale, the ACV listing allows the local community to decide whether it wishes to put in a bid to run it as a community pub. Since The Cock is now on the market, a village meeting was held to discuss the options available. To help gauge public interest, a questionnaire was circulated to all households; this brief survey is now available online here:
Please take a moment to complete it. A further rmeeting to discuss the responses and decide whether or not the village should make a bid will be held in the Village Hall on Monday 28th September at 7.30pm. All welcome!
