COMMUNITIES throughout Suffolk are buzzing with excitement over the impending Royal Wedding which is just six weeks away.

Villages, schools and organisations across the county are celebrating the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in traditional, and not-so-traditional, ways.

Villagers in Flempton will be celebrating the wedding, on April 29, with a feast on the green. The village, which appoints a theme each year for events, will also be holding an archery contest in-keeping with this year’s Robin Hood theme of Friar Tuck and his fallen archers.

A community in Drinkstone will also be celebrating as children from the village youth club take up roles of the wedding party and parade through the village in costume before a barbecue and party.

Staff at St Peter’s House care home, in Bury St Edmunds, are putting on a special day of celebrations to mark the big day. A minister will be carrying out wedding blessings for couples and residents will also be invited to share old wedding photos and dresses.

Bury Picturehouse, in Hatter Street, Bury, will be screening the wedding and will also be putting on a special showing of The King’s Speech with wedding cake and a glass of bubbly to toast the couple. For tickets call 0871 902 5722.

Riverwalk school in Bury St Edmunds and Culford pre-

prepatory school are also holding special celebrations, and Thurston and District Riding Club are holding a showjumping event.
