Harleston Country Market

Harleston Country Market

Wednesday 4th August 2021


You can shop locally for fruit and vegetables, plants and bulbs, sweet and savoury bakery and vegetarian specialities.  You can order any of the home baking products at the Market for collection the following Wednesday.  And if you're looking for a special present, our members who craft and sew have all been busy during lockdown so we'll have a really good selection every week.


For safety we operate a one-way system, have hand sanitiser available, all wear masks and keep both doors open to aid ventilation.  We will also have tables outside weather permitting.  


Come and see what we sell - you may be surprised


Brockdish Social Cafe

Thursday 5th August 2021

The Waveney Heritage Centre, Grove Road, Brockdish IP21 4JP

Have you missed the company of others?  Why not drop in for a cuppa or perhaps bring a friend or neighbour along.  Everyone is welcome.

Bring along anything you enjoy doing - knitting, crochet, sewing, puzzles, scrabble, cards

Or simply just pop along to enjoy a cuppa and a chat.


We are planning to hold the Social Cafe on the first Thursday of each month.  Please come along and tell us what you would like to see at the Social Cafe.
