Autumn brings a rich golden hue to the East Anglian countryside, it signals the start of lazy nights by the fire and offers a whole season of fun. As October draws to a close, school children and teachers will be embarking on a well-earned week off, giving them time to explore the seasonal delights of Suffolk and north Essex from crisp coastal walks to indoor play away from the autumn chill.
With Halloween falling in the middle of this year’s half-term break, children will be able to delve feet first into the age-old tradition of fancy dress and gruesome fun. As the week draws to close, bonfire night celebrations will get underway with a bang. Across the region there will be firework displays of varying scales, allowing families to be captivated by explosions of colour against the dark, autumn skies in a safe, controlled environment.
