HALESWORTH HERITAGE GEMS REVEALED


Top 5 free (or nearly free) activities for kids


SCHOOL’S out and the summer holidays are upon us – the kids may be excited, but for parents and guardians, having six whole weeks to fill can be daunting.


Luckily, Norfolk


and Suffolk are bursting with family-friendly attractions and activities


that are guaranteed


to keep little ones entertained. We’ve taken all the stress out of finding things to do: whether free or paid, come rain or shine, close to home or out and about, we’ve got you covered.

‘HALESWORTH on the Map’ is the theme of this year’s Halesworth Heritage Open Days on the weekend of 21-22 September.


Held every two years since 2015, the Heritage Days give residents and visitors alike the chance to explore buildings they may have previously passed by and investigate aspects of the town’s history they knew nothing about. Nearly a dozen buildings will open their doors across the


weekend, among them the 16th-century Old Rectory, hidden away in beautiful gardens within a stone’s throw of the Thoroughfare, and Bank House, elegantly Georgian and stylishly restored and furnished in recent years.


Knowledgeable guides will be on-hand throughout the weekend to lead six different themed tours of the town while the newly-refurbished space of St. Mary’s Church


will play host to a mediaeval- style pageant focused on the lives of the de Argentein family, lords of the manor of Halesworth.


More details will appear in our next edition and a printed brochure will be available early in September with full details of opportunities on offer and booking arrangements.

River Blyth


RIVERS are important wildlife


corridors that


connect habitats together and they are home to a wide variety of important species, including otter and water vole. Rivers in Suffolk are a great resource for people and wildlife, but many suffer from issues like and sediment nearby


pollution land, as well


input from as


historic modifications that affect the way they flow through the landscape. This


Agency to is why Suffolk


Wildlife Trust are working in partnership with the Environment


tackle these issues on a catchment-wide scale on the River Blyth. A new approach for Suffolk Wildlife Trust Suffolk Wildlife Trust is not new to restoring


river


habitats and has learnt much from its restoration activities on the Little Ouse at Knettishall Heath nature reserve. However, working on a catchment-wide scale is an exciting new approach that will tackle the larger issues of flooding, diffuse pollution, sedimentation and


invasive non-native species such as Himalayan balsam. With a River Blyth Catchment Adviser in post to work alongside a team of volunteer River Wardens, this project, funded by a Water Environment Grant, will work with landowners and


communities to look


for opportunities for river restoration on a catchment scale.


Blyth


River Restoration on the From the estuary, which


enters the North Sea at Southwold, to the non-tidal reaches and tributaries that wind their


way through


towns, villages and farmland, the River Blyth is a beautiful feature of the Suffolk Coast. However, sections of the river suffer from pollution, sedimentation


and historic


straightening of the channel which means the river no longer provides the diverse micro-habitats


that many


species rely on. In summer, the beds of


the


tributaries which feed the Blyth run dry, meaning they are unable to support invertebrates


or other


wildlife. But then in winter, when the rain comes, the tributaries


are inundated


with water, eroding soft banks and carrying silt and sediment downstream. The River Blyth restoration Project will see seven sites across the catchment restored in the first two years of the project, through tree planting,


invasive species


control and the installation of log jams and flow deflectors. Get involved


If you would like to help


protect and restore the River Blyth, you can volunteer as a River Warden. There are opportunities


for practical


volunteer work on the river and to get involved in important surveys to assess its heath. For information about volunteering opportunities on the Blyth, sign-up to the Blyth river Wardens newsletter here. For more information contact


please the Blyth Catchment suffolkwildlifetrust.org River Adviser
