Iconic Suffolk Punch horses, are set to lead afternoon free-admission at the Suffolk Food Hall on the Shotley Peninsula Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Mares and foals, braiding and harnessing, drays and wagons will all be on parade highlighting the agricultural past for which the local area is famed.  There will displays of genuine Suffolk timber snigging; an historical method by which heavy timber was moved and transported before the introduction of modern day machinery.  An outdoor cinema is also planned screening nostalgic film of the area.

Between 3pm and 7pm, the Suffolk Land Rover Owners Club plans to take people on a 4x4 assault course underneath the Orwell Bridge.  The Food Hall will also have a BBQ with beef and pork from their own farms.  In particular the beef is from the Food Hall's home herd of Red Poll cattle, the traditional breed of the county and another third of the Suffolk Trinity.  The other two being the Black faced Sheep and Suffolk Punch Horse.  www.suffolkfoodhall.co.uk
