Woodbridge Town Council recently consulted the Town on a suggested new home for the Drums to the Fore and Aft statue affectionately known as the Drummer Boy.
The survey listed 5 locations in Woodbridge and people were asked to vote online or by email/letter on their preferred site. The overwhelming majority was to site the Drummer Boy on the cobbled area outside Shire Hall on Market Hill. Councillors at their meeting on 9th February 2016, agreed to this location subject to the Town Council obtaining planning consent, and Suffolk Coastal District Council providing a new base and funding the relocation of the statue. The Town Mayor, Councillor Josh Sayles thanked the community for expressing their preferred option and said it was Localism in action.
