Community Wardens

Sudbury Town Council's Community Wardens are the eyes and ears of the community providing a highly visible presence.  The wardens pride themselves on a friendly and approachable service and are able to deal with issues such as abandoned vehicles, littering, fly tipping, grafitti and vandalism.

Employed by Sudbury Town Council, in partnership with Babergh District Council, Great Cornard, Great Waldingfield, Little Waldingfield, Lavenham and Chilton Parish Councils, the wardens encourage members of the public to contact them if they encounter any problems, so prompt and appropriate action can be taken.

If you would like to report a problem or to discuss an issue of concern, please contact the Community Warden team on 01787 372331 or by email

MEET THE Sudbury Community Wardens

and the COVID-19 crisis response team

In response to the COVID-19 emergency, Sudbury Town Council has helped to establish the Sudbury Community Network to provide support for the most vulnerable members of our community and the Virtual High Street in support of Sudbury's small and independent businesses.


As a locally well known and trusted team, our Community Wardens have been able to act immediately to get these initiatives actively supporting our community through this emergency. Alongside their usual duties around town (observing social distancing guidelines at all times) the community Warden team are:

  • Working with our Community Network Volunteer Coordinators (our temporarily re-assigned Tourist Information Team) to deliver vital food and prescriptions to vulnerable isolating individuals and families.

  • Flyering printed information to known vulnerable households with information to get in touch if in need of help.

  • Working with our Advice Team to ensure foodbank vouchers and e-vouchers are getting to families in need.

  • Working to ensure orders are delivered from local independent shops to their customers identified as vulnerable.

  • Providing extra support for Sudbury Market's current essential retail provision by ensuring customers and traders are safe and the set up is consistent with social distancing measures.​

If you are vulnerable and in need of assistance, or know of someone that needs our support at this time, please give us a call on 01787 275776 or email


Sudbury Community Litter Picks 2020

Please note - in response to the COVID-19 crisis Sudbury's forthcoming community litter picks have been cancelled until further notice. Sudbury community wardens continue to undertake their usual duties in town as well as being a vital link for the Sudbury Community Network in our efforts to support the most vulnerable at this time.

We hope to re-instate our community litter picks very soon, watch this space!
