The Martlesham Community Portal web site was conceived in 2002 and launched in early 2003 by Malcolm Bell. It was one of the first community-based web sites and achieved a significant following. It sits along side the community created Martlesham Monthly magazine keeping residents of Martlesham in contact with the many organisations and events in the village. With the global reach of the Internet it has allowed ex-residents to keep in contact from further afield.

We are grateful to the Martlesham Monthly for their sponsorship of this website.
