Children got the opportunity to experience activities with the Suffolk Wildlife Trust as well as enjoy face painting and glitter tattoos at the St Edmundsbaby event.

There was also bread making over a fire and the chance for children to handle animals.

Steph Holland, St Edmundsbaby founder, said: “The event went really well. We had about 200 people, which is more than last year and quite a few people who had been to last year’s event came back. I’ve had lots of positive feedback so far.”

Debi Sheridan, of Suffolk Sling Dance, provided a demonstration ahead of new classes for parents and babies starting in Culford and Stowmarket next month.
