Former students, governors and families affiliated with an independent school in east Suffolk had a “thoroughly enjoyable evening” raising funds for an anniversary appeal.

Framlingham College’s Charter Ball has been hailed as a “great success” after raising more than £16,000 to support investment in the school and its junior partner Brandeston Hall. It formed part of a calendar of events leading up to the 150th anniversary of the college in 2015, which aims to raise £2m for new facilities.

Paul Taylor, headmaster at Framlingham College, has thanked the Kerr family for donating the use of Easton Grange – the “quite superb” venue for the evening.

“We are hugely grateful to the ball committee, whose tireless work under the leadership of Mel Dellow made the evening the success it undoubtedly was,” Mr Taylor added.

Further thanks have been given to those who provided auction prizes and to all who attended the event.

The man arrested by police over a suspected murder in Bury St Edmunds on Thursday has been charged this evening.

Suffolk police have this evening confirmed that a man involved in a serious crash on the A11 at Barton Mills has died.

Claydon High School has been recognised for its sporting prowess by achieving the School Games Mark silver award.

Two junctions on the A12 near Kelvedon in Essex will be closed for three nights this week as bridge repair works continue.

Firefighters have been called to tackle a pile of wood and barn alight at a farm in Harleston this evening.

One of the biggest dates in Felixstowe’s summer calendar of events got off to a sun drenched start on the seaside this afternoon.

It’s the start of the school summer holidays, six weeks that are a time of both joy and pain for parents across the nation, Sheena Grant writes.
