Martlesham Common – Wildlife survey of flora and fauna

The survey of Martlesham Common Local Nature Reserve is ongoing and we would like to encourage everyone to help with this survey by letting us know of sitings of any flora or fauna throughout the year. On Saturday 18th May, Phil Smith, from the Martlesham Conservation Group, led a walk round the Common and a number of birds were identified (including migrant visitors such as Nightingales, Garden Warblers, Blackcap and Whitethroat) and several species of butterflies were seen.

If you would like to help in any way please contact the secretary below.

Martlesham Brass

‘Making Music Fun in East Anglia’
Our main band is busy in July. You can hear them at Ipswich Music Day on Sunday 7th July, between 2.00pm & 2.45pm. On Saturday 20th July they will be playing at Martlesham Village Fete between 1.00pm & 2.00pm. On Sunday 28th July they are playing in Christchurch Park, Ipswich between 2.30pm & 4.30pm, as part of ‘Brass on the Grass’, which is a series of free concerts held throughout the summer. Hopefully the sun will be shining for all these events!
We would love to hear from new players, young and old, with or without experience. Our aim is to encourage anyone who feels they would like to play in a brass band to come and have a go! If you would like to join us, or if you already play or have previously played a brass instrument and would like to come along and meet us, please email join@martleshambrass.co.uk or use the contact details below.
