Stuston is a small parish spread across a wide area with most houses being situated around the common. The population includes about 30 children.
All Saints Church is a small medieval church set within a well-maintained churchyard. In 2006/7 the church undertook extensive renovation work to repair water damage to roof and walls. The rare Castleton monument was also restored and renovated.
The church is the only meeting place in the village and apart from services can be used for other meetings. There is a strong historical link with Thrandeston and worshippers frequently visit Palgrave, Brome and Oakley. Fundraising for the church renovations was well supported by the village.
There are a number of small private businesses within the village including a garage, farm shop, print works, Montessori nursery and a working arable and livestock farm. For relaxation Stuston has an 18 hole golf course plus driving range, with a 150 acre common for walking.
The Montessori nursery attracts children, not only from Stuston but also from elsewhere. They have their annual Nativity play and a popular sports day in the Benefice. Most fundraising activities have started there.
