Launch of Suffolk Day 2018 - tell us why you love our county

PUBLISHED: 09:30 03 January 2018 | UPDATED: 18:52 04 March 2018

Suffolk Day is back this summer, shining a light on what makes our county so special - but what do you love about Suffolk?

On Thursday, June 21, the longest day of the year, scores of fun events will take place across the county in celebration of the wonderful county we call home.

Backed by the East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star as well as BBC Radio Suffolk, the day was a huge success last year with hundreds enjoying the sunshine at Suffolk Day events.

The Suffolk Trinity - the Suffolk Punch horse, Red Poll cattle and Black Faced Sheep - played a big role in the celebrations as did Suffolk’s delicious food and drink.

To mark the launch of Suffolk Day 2018, we would like to know what you love about Suffolk - let us know in the questionnaire.

Mark Murphy, BBC Radio Suffolk breakfast show presenter said: “Let’s make it bigger than last year and I‘d love to see it grow year on year for evermore.

“So pop that date June 21st in your diary and join in the fun.”

The identity of a man found dead in a Colchester car park yesterday has been confirmed by police.

A charity for victims of childhood sexual abuse in Suffolk and Norfolk has appointed former Ipswich Town and England footballer Kieron Dyer as its latest ambassador.

Suffolk County Council leader Colin Noble is facing the fight of his political life after being challenged for the top job by fellow cabinet member Matthew Hicks.

A brand new imaging centre at Colchester Hospital which aims to speed up diagnosis welcomed its first patients today.

A drug addict died after he was stabbed to “teach him a lesson” for trying to rob a dealer of drugs, it has been alleged.
