Do you recognise any of the people or were you at any of the events or in this week’s archive pictures?

Re: Sponsored bed push sets off from Aldeburgh in July 1983. Picture in EADT, July 24

Regarding your picture in the EADT (July 24). We were pushing the bed from Aldeburgh to the Griffin Inn at Yoxford in aid of Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.

This was a particular favourite of the Griffin landlords, Mike and Vera Stannard. I, by the way, am the one in the Arab headdress.

The other bed pushers are – standing at rear – Nigel Minter, Ricky Newson, myself, Paul Holmes, Theresa Foreman. Sitting in the bed is Rob Chandler (DJ on Radio Orwell) and Tania Stannard. Kneeling from the rear is Dale Stannard, Geoff Vincent and Sandy Cleveland.

The date was July 2 and we raised £77.40.

Mr R Booty,


Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.

A Colchester woman accused of murdering a rough sleeper, whose badly beaten body was found in a car park, allegedly saw one of her co-defendants bite off the victim’s ear lobe and try to get him to swallow it.

Adriano Guedes, aged 65, of Kessingland, moved to England from Portugal more than 15 years ago and was admitted to hospital in 2014 after having a stroke.

A woman walking her dog along a footpath in Sudbury was confronted by a man who demanded her mobile phone.

Tributes have been paid to the former principal of Chadacre Agricultural College, John Paton Philip MBE, who has died at the age of 92.

The sea wall of an island off the coast of Suffolk is being lowered by almost half a metre to prevent it flooding in stormy weather.
