A Suffolk market is to hold its first family fun Saturday at the weekend as part of a council initiative and visitors are being urged to support the event.

Brandon Market will host the event on September 1 and visitors can enjoy free giveaways, family-friendly activities, and extra stalls and music.

West Suffolk councils, made up of Forest Heath District Council and St Edmundsbury Borough Council, run a range of similar events at markets across the area.

As well as the event on September 1, fun Saturdays will also take place on October 6, November 3, and December 1.

There will be a mix of free family entertainment including puppet shows, live music and arts and crafts as well as a selection of craft and community stalls.

Anyone interested in taking part in any of these events or interested in becoming a market trader can contact Sharon Fairweather at sharon.fairweather@westsuffolk.gov.uk

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.

A Colchester woman accused of murdering a rough sleeper, whose badly beaten body was found in a car park, allegedly saw one of her co-defendants bite off the victim’s ear lobe and try to get him to swallow it.

Adriano Guedes, aged 65, of Kessingland, moved to England from Portugal more than 15 years ago and was admitted to hospital in 2014 after having a stroke.

A woman walking her dog along a footpath in Sudbury was confronted by a man who demanded her mobile phone.

Tributes have been paid to the former principal of Chadacre Agricultural College, John Paton Philip MBE, who has died at the age of 92.

The sea wall of an island off the coast of Suffolk is being lowered by almost half a metre to prevent it flooding in stormy weather.
