Eye Town Council used its prize money for coming runner-up in the Most Active Suffolk competition to organise a day of activities at the community centre on Sunday.

Visitors were offered taster sessions in sports, dance, gentle exercise and much more.

Councillor Simon Hooton, who led the event, said he was “very pleased” with it and hoped it would become a regular occurrence. “We had glorious weather all day, there were lots of smiles and I really do think that people enjoyed it,” he said.
