We WON!!!


SCDC Enabling Communities Award Winners 2016

“We are so pleased and genuinely had no idea. What a great feeling when our name got called out. I can’t stress enough how having the backing and funding from some of the major players like SCDC, has such a positive impact on what we can achieve.
It really tips the balance. We are very happy winners. Bring on 2017!”
- Terry Barrow of the Brook Farm Residents’ Association and organiser of Sax Music Festival

The SaxMusicFest is a free event organized by the Brook Farm Residents' Association and is supported with funding from several sources including the Suffolk Coastal District Council.
