The design for one of the county's busiest family attractions has been revealed.

Southwold Maize Maze is due to open on Saturday, July 20 with a design inspired by two significant local organisations. 

The main maze features a lifeboat in the centre surrounded by swirling stormy seas to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). 

The mini maze commemorates Southwold Sailing Club and has been designed to look like a sailing boat. 

The local sailing club recently celebrated its 75th anniversary with a festival at Southwold Harbour.

Bella Hall, who has managed Southwold Maize Maize since 2005, said: "This is now our 20th design and we wanted to give a nod to two very special local groups who have shaped the landscape of our cherished Southwold Harbour for so many years.

"We are delighted to to welcome families back to the maize maze every year, the design and theme are of course different each year to ensure our visitors still enjoy the challenge."

In addition to the designs, 25p will be donated to the RNLI for every adult ticket purchased this year.

Lisa Copper-Dann, chair of Southwold and Dunwich RNLI fundraisers, said: "It is a significant year for the RNLI, and we are raising awareness across the country of the hard work that the RNLI does to keep our seas safe so this initiative is a great help for the charity."

Southwold Maize Maize will be open everyday from Saturday, July 20 until Sunday, September 8, and Fridays plus weekends from Friday, September 13 until Sunday, October 20. 

Entry to the maize maze includes access to all facilities within the play park plus the go-kart track within the maze.

The family attraction also announced the launch of birthday parties for groups of 10 to 16 children during summer.
