From a movie-loving couple’s ‘fairytale’ wedding to Sunday’s fun-filled Bubblerush in Ipswich - here are five stories you may have missed this bank holiday weekend.

1. Just over 500 foam-covered fundraisers dashed across Christchurch Park in Ipswich in the rain on Sunday to pledge their support for St Elizabeth Hospice.



2.
The massive contribution made by the Windrush generation to British society was celebrated in Ipswich on Sunday.

3. Officials at an historic church in Ipswich are considering closing it during the day following the latest theft.

4. A couple who are mad about movies are ‘living the fairytale’ as they become the first people to tie the knot at their Suffolk cinema.

5. It may have been a bit cold and damp but people came in their wet weather gear along with their umbrellas and flocked to the annual Food and Drink Festival, in Bury St Edmunds.

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.
