Dairy Farms in Sudbury

When we buy milk today, we are most likely to get it from a supermarket, in a plastic bottle. But how much do we know about where our milk comes from, and the stories behind the dairy farming business, especially when this was an activity carried out by people in our local area?
People have kept cows (and other animals) to provide milk for thousands of years, but it was only in the 19th century that some farms began to specialise in milk production. This article looks at the history of three such farms in the Sudbury district of Brent, and at some of the changes in delivering milk from the farms so that we can enjoy it as a drink, or on our breakfast cereal, in our homes.

Brent Community Champions Award

Well done to our deputy chair Renu Kaul who is one of 19 recipients of the Brent Community Champions Awards for 2015. STRA members Francis Henry, Christine Harvey and Jean Peacock, won this award in 2014 for their efforts to make Sudbury a better place to live.

The awards are an annual event from Brent Council to honour and recognise individuals who have given outstanding community and voluntary service in Brent

The awards are given to recognise people who make a positive difference to their local community.  Recipients may work for a voluntary organisation or group: or are school governors: run or work for youth clubs and organisations, or are just good neighbours, or helpful business people.

 

Residents can apply on line to suggest someone they think deserves this award.

At last we have official permission from Network Rail.
