Thurston Parish

The village of Thurston which has a population of 4,000, is situated 4 miles east of Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk just north of the A14. Hourly train and bus services to and from the village make local towns and places further afield very accessible.

Children's education is well catered for: there is a nursery, pre-school, children's centre, primary school and community college in the village itself.

Thurston has a wealth of leisure opportunities with many organised clubs, groups and activities for all ages, a selection of which are listed below.

The New Green Community Centre, the Cavendish village hall, the library, as well as open spaces and sports facilities, are well used village assets.

There are over seventy businesses in the village, mostly small in scale.

Three church groups in the village, the Parish church of St. Peter, the Methodist chapel and the Forge Community church are active in the community.

Above all Thurston is a friendly, well served community in a safe and attractive environment for individuals and families to thrive in.  For further details please visit the village website  https://thurstonparishcouncil.uk/
