Fun, laughter and a sense of community were the order of the day at the annual Mendlesham Community Council Street Fayre.

Today’s event – sponsored by the East Anglian Daily Times - was estimated to have brought around 3,000-4,000 people out to enjoy all there was on offer.

Among the attractions were street entertainers, The Mad Hare Marching Band, Stowmarket Boys Brigade Band, East Suffolk Morris Men, and the Urban Allstars Majorettes.

There were also stalls galore at the craft show inside the village community centre.

Angela Pickup, one of the organisers of the fayre, said she was really pleased with how the day went.

Mrs Pickup added: “I think it is so nice for the village. Some of these little events that go on in Suffolk villages are disappearing.

“We only have a small committee but we work very hard, and will continue to work very hard, to keep putting the fayre on.

“I think everybody who came along had a smile on their face, and were laughing and joking. It was a very good atmosphere.”

Police are appealing for witnesses after an elderly woman reported being robbed in Haverhill on Friday.

A super slimmer from Colchester told she was a ticking time bomb at 32 stone is enjoying a new lease of life – after shedding half her body weight.

The body of a man found near Leavenheath this afternoon is believed to be that of missing Richard Hull, police have confirmed.

A brave Kesgrave teenager who lost a leg to cancer hit headlines for passing her driving test a year early but she may now face losing that independence – and her beloved car.

A short stroll from the Cornhill can be packed with history, change and stories.

The man who spearheaded efforts to build a northern by-pass across Ipswich 25 years ago has backed new plans to build the road that are now emerging.

A man arrested in connection with an incident that saw armed police descend on Ipswich town centre last night will face no further action.
