Best paw forward for charity dog walk
Local hearing care specialists, The Hearing Care Centre have announced a return of their special charity dog walk – helping raise funds for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
The 4 – 5 mile route takes in the beautiful countryside and river views between Newbourne and Waldringfield and promises to be a treat for any four-legged friends and their owners alike.
The morning stroll takes place on Saturday 20th May 2017 (9.30am), in Newbourne, with breakfast being served at the halfway point – The Maybush Inn in Waldringfield.
Hearing Care Centre Audiologist and Managing Director Karen Finch, who herself has a young Cockapoo, said “Whether you have a dog or not, we would love for you to join us. Enjoying a spot of breakfast and a breath of fresh air whilst raising money for a fantastic charity – what could be better?!”
The walk forms part of the Suffolk Walking Festival which takes place between 13th May – 4th June 2017. They are celebrating their 10th anniversary with over 100 walks organised across the county already.

The Suffolk Walking Festival
13 May – 4 June 2017
This year, the Suffolk Walking Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary and it promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
There really is something for everybody this year. Whether you’re a novice or expert, young or old, walking with your family or walking alone, you are bound to find a walk that tickles your fancy.
There are a range of short walks that are between one and four miles. There are a range of walks between five and ten miles. There are also walks that are over fifty miles long for those who really want to challenge themselves.
You can take part in any of these walks at your own pace, with a group or against the clock.
This year’s festival also offers a variety of themed walks for you to get stuck into. There’s Duelling Dragons in Sudbury, where you will visit the oldest part of Sudbury and learn the answers to quirky questions such as ‘which dragon won the fight on Ballingdon bridge?’
If you’re looking for something a bit more subdued, you can watch for birds as you stroll around Westleton Heath. There’s also a speed dating walk, where you could meet new friends or a partner.
If you’re hoping to take your little ones on a stroll, there are a selection of walks during the half term period from golden mile walks between parks and museums in Lowestoft to activity routes in Ipswich and Sudbury. There’s even a trail even a trail or two at Jimmy’s Farm for those of you who’d like to meet the animals and see behind the scenes.
The Suffolk Walking Festival is the perfect way for people of all ages and abilities to get out and enjoy the Suffolk Coast and countryside. Walking is also great for our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. So come on, let’s go for a walk!
The end of this year’s Suffolk Walking Festival is coinciding with the end of Suffolk’s Year of Walking. Suffolk’s Year of Walking is a campaign that celebrates walking, as well as encourages those who don’t walk too often become at least a little bit more active.

Saturday 13 May 2017, 7.30pm
St Bartholomew’s Church, Orford
ALDEBURGH MUSIC CLUB CHOIR
Edmond Fivet Conductor
Zoë Bonner soprano
Melanie Sanders mezzo soprano
Edward Saklatvala tenor
Edward Grint bass baritone
JOSEPH HAYDN: Maria Theresa Mass
JOSEPH HAYDN: Salve Regina
On Saturday 13 May, Aldeburgh Music Club Choir with Prometheus Orchestra and a fine line-up of soloists perform two contrasting sacred works by Joseph Haydn in the perfect setting of Orford church. The concert also includes two Scarlatti motets and The Deer’s Cry by Arvo Pärt.
Haydn’s Salve Regina is an early work scored for modest forces, soprano soloist, choir, organ, and strings. Haydn contrasts elaborate, operatic writing for the soloist with chordal writing for the choir to create a thoroughly enjoyable piece of music.
The Maria Theresa Mass is a mature masterpiece, composed towards the end of Haydn’s life, between The Creation and The Seasons, when Haydn was at the height of his powers, inventive and witty as ever, and relishing the chance to write more elaborate sacred music combining choir, soloists and a symphony orchestra, to great effect.
Tickets £15 (students £7.50) from Snape Maltings Box Office 01728 687110
