FACTS is a Community Transport service devoted to helping the infirm, vulnerable, elderly, disabled and mobility challenged. Plus those in Felixstowe and the surrounding villages who may not have regular access to public transport. They help and assist them to get away from the four walls of home, go to the doctors, dentist, opticians, care centres, church, clubs, shops and meetings. Their Mini-buses are a well known sight around Town as they cater for more than 1500 regular users each month. Many of whom regard FACTS as their window to the outside world.

Felixstowe & Walton United F.C.
Registered company number is 10076800.
The ‘Seasiders’ provide footballing opportunities for around 300 players and are represented by 21 boys and girls teams ranging from Under 6’s to U18’s and through to the senior side playing in the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties Premier Division and competing in the FA Cup and FA Vase each season.
The volunteer run Club is based at the Goldstar Ground in Dellwood Avenue, Felixstowe and has recently completed a major project to replace their dilapidated pavilion with a new purpose built complex – thanks to various grants and their own fundraising, enabling continued growth and securing the future of the Club that plays such a vital role to so many in the community.
