IT’S been a good start to the tourist season at Felixstowe – with the attractions at Landguard particularly pleased to see people making the most of their activities.
Stephen Rampley, Landguard marketing and events co-ordinator, said: “Easter is the traditional start to the season when we expect to see people getting out and about.
“The events we held at Landguard were a great success.
“The fort ran a trail throughout the holidays and had a fantastic response with lot of visitors.”
Face painting, crafts, story-telling and a fun trail were all part of an Easter Fun Day at Felixstowe Museum, which attracted more than 80 youngsters and their parents to enjoy a packed afternoon.
