Phil Jones has kindly offered to share his photos from the Celebrating Saxtead Festival.
A new social prescribing initiative that has been helping to improve the health and wellbeing of Ipswich residents is to be rolled out across East Suffolk during September and October.
Our September Festival, will feature the diverse skills and talents of our creative residents to a wider audience. A little over a year ago, two of us were chatting as we cleaned the church, bemoaning the lack of activities to occupy children during services, but mainly expressing our surprise and delight at the range of talented people in the village. From this snatched conversation the idea of a celebratory festival was born; an honest attempt to discover and celebrate not the talents of the gifted few, but all those skills which make everyday life so pleasant.
