Landscape for All events a huge success


Last week, the Suffolk & Essex Coast & Heaths National Landscape team organised for a Suffolk Refugee Ukrainian Group visit to historic Sutton Hoo.
The event was in partnership with East Suffolk Line Community Rail and Greater Anglia, who provided free rail travel, and the National Trust who provided a free community pass for the group.
The group started at Ipswich station, taking the train to Melton where the group began to walk to Sutton Hoo. The day included the group going up the viewing tower to look at the burial mounds before visiting the exhibitions.

Meanwhile, Monday 3rd June saw the Caribbean and African Community Health Support Forum (CACHSF)  “Unity Walking to Wellness” event. CACHSF objectives are to address the health and wellbeing issues which impact disproportionately on the Caribbean and African community living in Suffolk.

They achieve this by engaging and enabling people from these communities to access/receive culturally appropriate health and wellbeing information via targeted initiatives such as health seminars, health awareness courses, projects and community events.  

This was a partnership event with East Suffolk Lines Community Rail Partnership, Greater Anglia, Wild Woods, Woodbridge Riverside Trust and funded by Suffolk  County Council’s Green Access Team.  

30 people caught the train from Ipswich whereby they had reggae music, games and ginger cake.  On arrival they had a guided/foraging walk along the Deben towards Kyson Point before heading the Longshed for nature craft activities and a lunch of Akee & Salt Fish, plantain, chicken Festivals a real Jamaican treat!
