A “Village Recorder” records the day to day events in your village so that these are maintained as an accurate historical record for the future. At the end of every year, a brief report is sent to the Suffolk Local History Council who retain these together with records from many of Suffolk’s villages as an historical archive for the future. There has been a village recorder in Badwell Ash since the early 1960s. Most of the older records are written in “scrapbooks” and are held by the Badwell Ash History Society. These are slowly being digitised as volunteers and time permits and eventually, all the available records will be added to this site.
