Welcome to the Shadingfield, Sotterley, Willingham and Ellough
Joint Parish Council Website




The next Parish Council meeting will be held on Wednesday 20th March 2024
at Shadingfield Village Hall, starting at 7.00pm


Domestic Loft Insulation Offer

Help with loft insulation is now available to help Suffolk residents make their homes warmer and save money on their energy bills. The Suffolk Climate Change Partnership has teamed up with Travis Perkins to offer support for Suffolk residents through a significant reduction on buying loft insulation.

Residents will receive a 50% discount off their purchase (up to £200), with free delivery. The offer is open to anyone living in Suffolk and will close once the allocated funding has been spent. We have the equivalent of 18.5 football pitches of loft insulation available as part of this deal; once it’s gone it’s gone!

Simply fill out the order form online Suffolk Loft Insulation Offer Order Form ( and Travis Perkins will be in touch to arrange payment and delivery. To find out more visit Funding and Support for Homeowners and Renters – Green Suffolk
