Do you recognise any of the people or were you at any of the events or in this week’s archive pictures?

Re: Sponsored bed push sets off from Aldeburgh in July 1983. Picture in EADT, July 24

Regarding your picture in the EADT (July 24). We were pushing the bed from Aldeburgh to the Griffin Inn at Yoxford in aid of Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.

This was a particular favourite of the Griffin landlords, Mike and Vera Stannard. I, by the way, am the one in the Arab headdress.

The other bed pushers are – standing at rear – Nigel Minter, Ricky Newson, myself, Paul Holmes, Theresa Foreman. Sitting in the bed is Rob Chandler (DJ on Radio Orwell) and Tania Stannard. Kneeling from the rear is Dale Stannard, Geoff Vincent and Sandy Cleveland.

The date was July 2 and we raised £77.40.

Mr R Booty,


Fresh concerns have been raised over the quality of Suffolk schools as the latest data has revealed soaring numbers are being judged ‘inadequate’ or ‘requires improvement’ by Ofsted.

A Suffolk council has been accused of “wasting” £10,000 on a “bodged job” to improve a memorial boating lake.

Watch our video of this £500,000 Victorian property which has a wine store and a walk in wardrobe.

This week Suffolk Saab owners have been discussing why they love the Swedish vehicles on Twitter while Ipswich Town fans have been paying tribute to the late, great Kevin Beattie.

More than 200 services have been delayed on Greater Anglia’s main line this weekend - with unforeseen maintenance issues compounding disruption caused by planned works on the track to London Liverpool Street.

A village is set to get a fourth defibrillator after a landlord saved the life of a man who suffered a heart attack in his pub.

Leave extra time for your journey if it’s likely to be affected by roadworks.
