Posties, post boxes and giant envelopes, have been appearing at houses around Ipswich as families embrace a creative Easter trail. 

Homes in Medway Road, Elmhurst Drive, Murray Road and Derwent Drive have created impressive postal-themed garden and window displays as part of the trail, inspired by The Jolly Postman book.

The trail has encouraged children to get active in the school holidays.

Each house is plotted on a map, and families taking part need to note down the name of the postman or postwoman at each stop.

Organisers, the Cliff Lane Friends Association, have arranged for children who complete the trail to receive a certificate, chocolate coin and sunflower seeds. 

There is still time for families in Ipswich to join in with the ' Jolly Postman's Journey' - inspired by the book by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, before the end of the Easter holidays.
