The new fountains on Ipswich Cornhill were switched on for the summer on Monday to mark the start of the Easter School holidays.

And the weather seemed to know that the children’s holidays had started by shining on the town centre as families came out to see the fun and even relax on the deckchairs that had been put on in the town centre.

The fountains are the centrepiece of the refurbishment of the Cornhill that was unveiled last November.

However they were turned off during the winter – but are now back in operation bringing a real touch of fun to the heart of the town.

Children were darting in and out of the water on a fine day while parents and grandparents were left with the puzzle of how to get them dry again before heading home.

The fountains will remain on for most of the spring, summer and into the early autumn.
