Peter Mortlock gives his pob as Clare in the 1911 census. In an earlier census it is 'Long Garden'. Does/did this relate to anywhere local?

Hello Graham... In passing, I noticed in your posting (7/07/11) you suggest..."...Mary Pinchback etc married at Bradfield street church clare etc etc" However you may not be aware that there is a village called "Bradfield SAINT Clare" which is about 12 miles from CLARE itself,so your search may be more centred at that location inc its church!! Hope this might prove useful!

My father told me that one of his brothers was posted to an army camp situated at Clare during the second world war, just prior to being posted on to Norway. Does anyone have any information regarding this camp ie. location, size, purpose or any anecdotes regarding interaction with the camp and it's inhabitants?

MANY CONGRATULATIONS TO NURSE LESLEY LAGDEN FOR HER OUTSTANDING FLOWER BASKETS AS DISPLAYED ON THE SHOP FRONT OF MARTIN AND SONS. WHY THIS BUSINESS WAS NOT AWARDED FIRST PRIZE IS BEING MUCH DISCUSSED BY LOCAL RESIDENTS AND REGULAR VISITORS TO CLARE.

NURSE LESLIE MAKES NO CHARGE FOR HER WORK BUT ACCEPTS DONATIONS FOR A BREAST CANCER CHARITY. MAGNIFICENT DISPLAY LESLEY, YOU CAME FIRST WITH ME!!

Hello there people of Clare !! I saw your lovely village on the news last night and found an uncanny link to my wife - her name is Clare Bailey ! I noticed the village sign on the news item, it said 'CLARE' and then underneath something like 'Anglo, Saxon, Bailey' etc. I also saw a standard road sign on the news item, it said 'CLARE - please drive carefully'. I would REALLY appreciate it if someone could take a picture of the name sign with the 'Clare, Anglo Saxon, Bailey' on it and the 'Clare - Please drive carefully' sign and email them to me. My wife would be very impressed :-) Cheers all

I think it should be made clear that Clare & District Day Care Centre was an independent organisation and not run by CLASP. It is unfortunate that both Monday and Friday meetings have now been closed, but lack of volunteers with the commitment to work regularly and meet with current legislation requiremnts has had its toll.
This also has a knock-on effect to CHOC and the CLASP minibus as both orgainsations benefitted by the revenue raised by patronage of the Day Care Centre in hire fees.
I know that many other organisations are struggling to survive as the generation with the "volunteering ethic" and those wishing to put something back into society, grows older and there are no younger replacements coming forward to raise funds and commit to hands-on work.
Congratulations on the new website - a very valuable source of local information

Clare has gone global at last!! Can anyone shed some light on when the xmas sing a long in the baptist church will be this year? I know it's a bit early to be thinking about xmas, but I need to know so I can make sure I have an early shift at work on that day! Have yet to miss a year since I moved out of the village, can't wait to see Nigel again!! Thanks
I would just like to say how nice it is to have a draft copy of the minutes on the web site, it is now a lot easier to keep up with what is going on, Thanks

The main buses are between Sudbury and Haverhill but there is a four-hour gap in the middle of the day when people might have more interest in public transport. There are two buses daily to Bury St Edmunds in the morning, returning in the afternoon. It is NOT possible to use a bus to Bury in the afternoon, nor to return from Bury in the morning. Currently there are no buses on Sunday. With a population increasing with age, bus passes require some careful consideration unless one wishes to be stuck for four hours waiting for the next bus to appear!

Hello to everyone in Clare,
We used to live in Clare 5 years ago and we have just moved back and we are in the middle of buying a house on the hights.We now have two lovely little boys aged 20 months and 4 months.Can anyone help me out about where we should take the boys for days out or kids clubs ? Some of you out there might remember me we used to have a lovely spotty dog called Herbie,but sadly we lost him a few years ago now. Looking forward to hearing from you.......

Glad you're coming to Clare - I'm sure you'll love it. You should take a train from London Liverpool Street to Sudbury and then there is a bus to Clare. Fingers crossed for good weather for you.

We are moving to Hundon in a couple of months from London. What banks are available in Clare if any. If there are no banks in Clare could you tell us where the nearest Barclays and Abbey banks are situated.
Thanks very much.
