A free open-air ice skating rink remains in place in Felixstowe town centre this week - and you don't need to pre book.

The rink was part of a weekend of festive celebrations organised by Felixstowe BID (Business Improvement District).

As well as the synthetic ice rink at Great Eastern Square, there were live bands at The Triangle and performers in the town over the weekend.

The events were staged in order to help increase footfall in the town after what has been a very difficult year for traders, while bringing some Christmas cheer to families and shoppers.

"Our shops, restaurants and cafes remain open for business, and it was great to see the town so busy.”
