AFTER months of planning we can finally reveal that the Ipswich Star tea marquee is making a return to the Suffolk Show next month.

We will be on stand 185 in Fourth Avenue offering every reader a free cup of tea or coffee, or a cold drink for the children.

Debbie Noye, events manager for Archant Suffolk, said: “The tea marquee was always popular and every year we get asked why we stopped it so this year we decided to bring it back.

“Our readers can come and see us, have a seat and enjoy a fresh cup of tea or coffee, and maybe a slice of freshly-made cake.

“And while they are there, they can talk to members of the team and let us know what they love about our papers, websites, reader offers and mobile sites.

“We are looking forward to meeting you all on the day.”

Readers can collect tokens printed in paper ahead of the show, or buy a copy of the Ipswich Star on the day to get a free drink on our stand.
