    Today is Suffolk Day.
    Suffolk Day is the invention of BBC Suffolk to recognise the county, known for its “chocolate-box” villages, 50 miles (80km) of coastline and horseracing at Newmarket, among many other things.

    It’s based on a successful model in Yorkshire and the plan is for it to be marked annually.

    The day is being backed by the county council and the East Anglian Daily Times.

    Of some irony, Yorkshire Day started as a political protest against the Local Government re-organisation of 1974 which saw Yorkshire subdivided; and also saw the introduction of county councils, in particular East Suffolk, West Suffolk and the county borough of Ipswich merged into one Suffolk. Ipswich has gone downhill since and I don't think Suffolk has done too well out of it either...
