Later this week there are public meetings planned by the Seckford Foundation who are behind the Ixworth Free School proposal. Several posters advertising the public meetings have appeared in the Thurston area. You can see a picture of one here with a SCOFS flyer underneath it. This appeared on Facebook with the caption this is what competition between schools looks like.

The public meetings take place:
