The first weekend of May means only one thing, a long bank holiday weekend, and if you were struggling to think of things to do in the sunshine, hopefully this article will help.
We asked the members of the Enjoy Beccles More Facebook group what they were doing this bank holiday weekend and here are their suggestions.
Paul Feek and Annette Tackley both suggested Rose May Fete on Bank Holiday Monday. Annette said: “I will be at Rose May Fete at Ringsfield village hall on bank holiday Monday 10am to 4pm. Displays fun dog show lots of stalls plus scones with cream and jam.”
Carla Dodd also suggested a village fete, she said: “We will be at rumburgh village hall may day fete.”
Samanda Ford put forward something even more traditional. She said: “Bank Holiday Monday dwile flonking at Geldeston locks. Great fun lovely venue. My once a year fix of country frolicking”
Ann Riches said: “Beccles helping hands history walk on Saturday evening. 7.30pm start at the Bear & Bells”
Rachel Betts added: “Open Day at Goose Green Nursery - fundraiser for Beccles May Centre and Broads Appeal. Refreshments and cake stall.”
For water lovers, Janet Forster said: “Open day at Beccles Sailing Club on Sunday. Why not come and see if this sport is one you would enjoy.”
Michelle Payne said: “Friday is meatloaf tribute night at the Ingate Freehouse, Saturday is boxing match, Sunday is ‘take your pick’ a free fun raffle and then a chance to win £1000 on jokers wild at 8pm. Monday is Funday!”
Fans of flowers could also have an enjoyable weekend, Christine Catchpole suggested the North Cove Flower Festival at North Cove Church on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Kate Lee said she would be at the Antiques Market in Beccles on Sunday between 8am and 4p, while Mark Carter said he would be partaking in a music quiz at the Beccles Caxton Club from 7.30pm on Friday, May 4.
However, much like some of us at Enjoy Beccles More, spare a thought for both Jane Tomlinson and Linda Howes who said they would be working.
We here at Enjoy Beccles More would love to see your photos from the bank hoilday weekend, send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on our Facebook group!
