Dalham Hedgerow... Grows
Jenny Perry, a local artist from Dalham continues to record the diary of a local hedgerow. Captured in both words and original paintings, the period of April through to July is now online. Many visitors have praised this highly original aspect of the 22villages project. Simply go to and click on Dalham on the signpost.

iPIX supports 22 villages
Visitors to the 22 villages site are now able to "step inside" key scenes from different communities within the project's area, thanks to support from Internet Pictures Corportation and Emap Digital.
iPIX images allow visitors to view a scene - up and down and all around, zooming in and out - simply by moving their mouse. Two digital images are taken, facing in opposite directions. These are stitched together by the iPIX software to recreate the whole scene. iPIX has given us 20 of the "keys" needed to save a scene for publication on the web, and pictures will be taken using equipment belonging to Emap's Construction Plus web sites.
The first two scenes are already on the 22 villages site, showing Santon Downham church. Others have been taken at Mildenhall Air Fete. Communities that would like to find out more or suggest scenes for possible inclusion should contact Joe ( or Lisa (

Arts2000 online
Local arts events are now available online, thanks to Lizzi Cocker, Forest Heath's Arts and Heritage Assistant. Over 30 events, during July, August and September, are detailed - from Moliere through Bugsy Malone to a talk on Suffolk Murderers. There is also the opportunity to add to the Council's growing Arts resource database, so if you know a good violin teacher or where to learn landscape painting let Lizzi know.
