Due to the current restrictions, the fourth Suffolk Day, will not have the same feel as last year when the Town Council proudly launched the event in front of the Town Hall.
Held annually on 21 June – the longest day of the year – Suffolk Day is a real celebration of all things Suffolk.
BBC Radio Suffolk will be marking the weekend from Friday 19 to Sunday 21 June on air but with the present restrictions many events have had to go virtually online or be cancelled.
Felixstowe Town Council will by flying the Suffolk flag in the Town Hall Gardens, but the customary ‘tea and cakes’ will have to be saved for another time.
If any residents would like to decorate their homes with flags or bunting, some promotional items can be downloaded from the Suffolk day website at https://www.suffolkday.co.uk/promotional-materials.
Use the hashtag #suffolkday to tell us how you are celebrating Suffolk Day this year safely on social media.
St Elizabeth Hospice are carrying out their special ‘Suffolk Remembers’ event virtually this year. They have made plans to produce a video showcasing all the candle dedications across the large letters that would normally be used at the event. The video will be released on their Facebook and YouTube channels on Sunday 21 June at 2pm. Despite the event challenges, the Suffolk Remembers appeal is very much going ahead and a candle can be dedicated in memory of your loved one with a suggested donation of £5. It is hoped to light up 5000 candles in total. For further information go to https://suffolkremembers.stelizabethhospice.org.uk/
