The glorious summer on the Alde and Ore Estuary came to a crashing end on the day of the Annual Barbecue, 26th August, with a gale and driving rain. But with everyone being forced to take shelter in a crowded marquee, it was even more sociable than usual and voted a great success.


The Association organised two walks in 2018 and members enjoyed exploring the Upper Alde Valley around Great Glemham and the 'Gedgrave Corner' in May and September.

Full reports of the walks and the Barbecue will appear in the autumn Newsletter.

On Saturday, 22nd September, the Alde and Ore Estuary Trust are organising the Four Ferries Charity Bike Ride in aid of the river defences. The total ride is some 42 miles and crosses the four foot ferries of Suffolk including the Association sponsored Butley Ferry. Full details are on the Trust's website. or can be accessed here.
