A shop in trendy St Peter’s Street, Ipswich, which was previously Rovian Sports, is being sold at auction this week.

Rovian Sports was the business of Malcolm Marriott, for many years a stalwart of the local Saints' traders association until his death last summer.

He helped organise a number of events and initiatives, including Christmas lighting, for the niche area of town.

Mr Marriott had run sports shops in the town for most of his life, for many years in St Peter's Street and previously in Queens Street.
