Stowmarket's annual beach party and Golden Mile provide free fun in the sun
All the fun of the seaside arrived in Stowmarket on Saturday as the town held its annual beach party.
The Recreation Ground hosted the free event, with its own sandy beach, donkey rides, Punch and Judy, bouncy castle, circus skills and more.
David Marsh of Stowmarket Town Council, which organises the party, said: “The event has always been about creating a great day out that the whole family could enjoy together without spending a fortune.”
The beach party also saw the finish line of the Stowmarket Striders’ annual Golden Mile.
First held in 2014 to celebrate the centenary of Roger Bannister’s four-minute mile, this year’s event saw 300 entrants run from Pikes Meadow.
