The Group Parish Council - in the beginning...

In the early 1970s pending the development of the former Martlesham Heath Airfield, the Southern Byepass with the Orwell Bridge and the expansion of the east of Ipswich was the cause of much concern within the small rural parishes of Brightwell, Foxhall and Purdis Farm.  

Discussions between the three parishes took place, led by Messrs Causton, Pearse and Skerry, which resulted in the forming in 1973 of the present Brightwell, Foxhall & Purdis Farm Group Parish Council with the feeling that together they would be stronger.
