The very first Suffolk Day is set to be held on June 21, celebrating all that is good about the county.

A range of events will take place on the day and local businesses are being encouraged to fly the flag - either the St Edmund flag or Suffolk County Council flag - in support.

The idea, spearheaded by the East Anglian Daily Times, Ipswich Star and BBC Radio Suffolk, stems from a successful model in Yorkshire, where a similar day has been running on August 1 for more than 40 years.

Inspired by Suffolk’s plans, some have suggested on social media that Norfolk should also have it’s own day.

Kevin J Murphy said: “There definitely should be a Norfolk Day, I’ve lived here for 20 years and Norfolk has give me everything I could ask for.”

Norfolk has so many brilliant things to offer, from its interesting history to the thriving arts and culture scene and fantastic food and drink offerings.
