HEARTWARMING news this week as Maisie the Cairn terrier who had vanished for eight days on Dunwich Heath in sub-zero temperatures was found.

Miraculously, Maisie was discovered after more than a week in the wilderness – freezing cold but apparently unscathed, with her lead caught on a tree, tethering her to the spot.

Details of the annual Hounds for Heroes dog walk were announced this week. On March 24 it will leave from the Barley Mow Inn, Witnesham, at 11am and take a route around the countryside and organiser Roger Lindley said he is hoping the event will beat the £1,200 raised last year.

Schoolchildren have been celebrating after receiving a generous donation this week. Youngsters at Saxmundham Primary had a special visit from members of the local Rotary Club recently, who handed over a cheque for £1,000 which will go towards the school’s Log House project.

Lucky youngsters were treated to a visit from some real life savers this week as three members of the Southwold Lifeboat crew dropped in to St Felix School in Reydon to explain more about their work and give pupils the chance to try on some of their kit.

The crew members joined parents and children from nursery, prep and pre-prep departments and were entertained by year three pupils, who performed a special chapel assembly about the RNLI and the history of the lifeboat station at Southwold.

The Orwell Walk has become a popular fixture on Suffolk’s fundraising calendar, raising more than £1.3million for charity during its long history.

But this year’s promenade is set to have a twist, as organisers introduce a new Orwell Cycle event too. With the help of Paralympic powerlifter Zoe Newson, the Ipswich East Rotary Club has launched their 37th Orwell Walk which will be held on Sunday, June 30.

A one man brewery is celebrating as one of its favourite tipples has had success at a national beer tasting competition. Bartrams Brewery’s extravagantly-named ‘Comrade Bill Bartrams Egalitarian Anti Imperialist Soviet Stout’ was named as best stout in the country at the National Winter Ales Festival.

An award-winning Suffolk bakery and cake shop has entered a landmark year in its history this week with plans for a fresh image. Staff at The Cake Shop, in Woodbridge, are busy serving customers from a converted shipping container, nicknamed “The Cake Pop”, while refurbishment takes place ahead of a grand reopening in two weeks.

Pupils and staff are celebrating at Sandlings Primary School in Sutton Heath, near Woodbridge, after impressing inspectors. The school has been rated “good” in its latest Ofsted report with inspectors being particularly impressed by the behaviour of children.

Many people were greeted by the sight of a group of fundraisers trekking around Ipswich in an array of onesies. The group of 24 took to the streets in their all-in- one adult baby grows to raise cash for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH). The Onesie Walk was organised by Julie West, bar supervisor at the Bramford Cock, and saw staff and punters unite to take to the streets in the name of charity.

Two Suffolk charities have been handed grants this week totalling £10,000 to help continue their good work. The May Gurney Foundation, the charitable arm of support services specialist May Gurney, has given funds of £5,000 each to Suffolk Young People’s Health Project and Leiston-based Young People Taking Action.
