Leiston skateparkSkaters and bmxers from mostly Saxmundham but Leiston as well (the young we assume Leiston person who asked us to sign the petition said he didn't really approve of Sax but was making an exception for the skatepark) and as far away as Beccles (Beccles' Smash Skate were sponsoring the day) gathered for a shoot out (or whatever you do on wheels) at Leiston Skatepark (which looks very well used) to raise money for the proposed (on that field by the A12 where the scouts hold boot sales) Sax Skatepark.  Serviced by a barbeque and an ice cream van there was the obligatory but good humoured teenage derision to the inevitable bailouts but some stunting did draw genuine applause.  We really hope we'll be snapping another skate park opening soon, we enjoyed the last one.  For more info try PCSO Thora Taylor.

Tub of flowers near Leiston

Leiston cum SizewellWe noticed earlier this summer that this t-junction between Leiston and Sizewell not only had an attractive tub of flowers but a whole boatful too!  Then yesterday we saw that entering Leiston from Theberton there's a tub of flowers and the south entrance to Saxmundham has a tub and a hanging basket.  Let's hope this charming idea spreads.
