Our weekly feature looking back at the photographic highlights of the week.

The highlight of the week was undoubtedly The Suffolk Show - the premier event in the county’s agricultural calendar attracted thousands of people to Trinity Park, near Ipswich.

Elsewhere, hundreds of people flocked to Mildenhall, Halesworth, Leiston and Martlesham RAF bases to witness the first-ever display by the specially-formed Eagle Squadron of four vintage warplanes.

Over the sunny bank holiday weekend, visitors enjoyed a traditional Suffolk summer celebration at the Framlingham Gala, which has been running in the town since 1887. This year’s theme was It’s a Wild Life.

A 15-strong team from Thomas Wolsey School in Defoe Road, were preparing to take on the Great East Swim at Alton Water in June, with the aim of raising £5,000 for the outdoor space.
