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.
The Easter Bunny Hunt was enjoyed by 64 children and their parents – braving a very cold day on the nature reserve.
Other special events included a living history day at the fort with the 95th Rifles, and guided nature reserve tours with ranger Kate Osborne.

Mr Rampley said a big programme of special events had been organised for the months ahead, and there would be a further boost with the opening next month of the new visitor centre, which will provide much-needed toilets, exhibition space and a restaurant.
