Community spirit at Ickworth
Ickworth has a long standing history of being involved in the local community. Theodora and the 4th Marquess were especially keen to delve into county life and support where they could. Lady Bristol was President of the local WI for many years, as well as holding tennis parties for the neighbourhood and balls for the servants at Christmas. The local school was always treated to an annual party and a local fete was once held at Ickworth to mark the silver jubilee. Ickworth continues this legacy with links to the local community, school and parish council.
