More than 1,000 people made the most of the dry weather on Saturday to enjoy the third annual Stowmarket beach party.

The popular event kicked off with a packed Golden Mile run of 250 entrants sprinting their way through the Stowmarket streets from Pikes Meadow to the Finborough Road Recreation Ground, before families enjoyed the live music, bouncy castle, circus skills workshop and Punch and Judy shows.

The day concluded with a screening of the hit Disney movie Frozen.

Event manager David Marsh, said: “We are really pleased with how it’s been going. It’s great to see the number of people cheering on the runners and coming out for the community.”

The event, organised by Stowmarket Town Council and the Maria Trust, helped raise funds for the trust and a host of local charities present on the day, with organisers hailing the success of the third event.
