Dr Dan recently visited the opening of the Alde Valley Spring Festival. This year’s four week festival featured an array of activities and events, from the many food events showcasing Suffolk’s local food producers to the nature walks around the beautiful scenery of the Alde Valley. The Festival venue, White House Farm, is a working sheep farm with ewes and lambs and is set in the wooded countryside of the Upper Alde Valley.

He very much looks forward to attending again next year.
