Striking scenes of Sudbury captured behind the lens for town calendar




Swans on a frosty morning, views of the town from St Peter’s, kingfishers on the water meadows and river scenes at sunrise are just some of the topics featured in this year’s Sudbury calendar.

Produced by the Tourist Information Centre at the town’s library on Market Hill, the third annual calendar is now on sale.

Centre manager Susan Gale said: “I’m absolutely delighted with this year’s calendar. There are wonderful contributions from 14 photographers – one image for each month of the year, plus photos for the back and front.

“People buy the calendar not only for themselves but also to send overseas to relatives and friends. We have all the postage rates so we can do that for them if they call us to order,” she added.

In addition to showcasing striking images around the town, the calendar also contains a list of all the events being held next year – subject to restrictions due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The events include dates for the Easter fun run, open gardens, the Women’s Tour, silk festival, carnival and the regatta.

Friday, April 30, is the date for the turning on ceremony.

“It’s always held on a Friday every five years and it’s a ceremony for turning the cows on to the water meadows. The mayor attends and it’s a town tradition,” she said.

“However, because of coronavirus, we will have to see what happens. We have included all the list of events next year, and there’s a lot that goes on.”

The calendar, priced £6.99, is available from the Tourist Information Centre or from the advice centre at the town hall.

Alternatively, call 01787 881320 to order by post for £3.50 extra.
