Dan recently visited the Suffolk Marmalade Festival at the All Saints Church in Thorndon. The Marmalade Festival was well-attended by families and people of all ages, and a host of activities, stalls and competitions ensured that there was plenty to see for everyone. Residents were invited to send in their homemade marmalades, which were judged by members of the Suffolk Women’s Institute. Students from Thornden School performed the Maypole dance, whilst the Lowestoft Dog Agility Display Team and the Eye Karate & Fitness Club Display Team also kept guests entertained during the course of the afternoon.
Dan was delighted to stop and chat to so many local people, and is always impressed by the strong sense of community that is a feature of events such as the Marmalade Festival. Dan is an active supporter of the East of England Air Ambulance and much of the proceeds raised on the day will go towards to the East Anglian Air Ambulance, which plays an invaluable role, particularly in our rural areas, in supporting the NHS in life threatening emergencies by air lifting people to hospital. Dan would like to extend his thanks to Rosemary Jones, who showed him around the festival, and very much looks forward to attending again next year
