A Suffolk father has been “overwhelmed” by the popularity of the playbarn he created as a memorial for two of his young children.

Farmer Guy Hayward, 43, marked the opening of the Oliver Hayward Playbarn in Lower Hacheston last month after more than three years of planning and hard work.

Mr Hayward said the event was a “very special moment” and the reaction to the playbarn had been “really positive”.

The playbarn opens from 9.30am to 12.30pm on Fridays and from 10am to 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
