On what looks to have been a bright summer’s day in 1989 villagers gathered together to watch the floats pass through Grundisburgh as it hosted the annual carnival.

Carnival regalia was varied with everything from tin foil to washing being used to decorate the floats.

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.
