Forks at the ready

EADT Suffolk - - Inside -

CEL­E­BRATE the very best of Suf­folk, with forks in hand and boots on your feet. Or­mis­ton Fam­i­lies’ flag­ship event, Walk with a Fork, is back for its fifth year at Helm­ing­ham Hall on Septem­ber 3. The beau­ti­ful 16th-cen­tury hall and es­tate, on the out­skirts of Ip­swich, was re­cently named as the His­toric House As­so­ci­a­tion’s gar­den of the year.

The seven-mile walk, cho­sen by Lady Tollemache of Helm­ing­ham Hall, who is also Or­mis­ton Fam­i­lies’ pres­i­dent, in­cludes beau­ti­ful vis­tas, ar­chi­tec­ture and hid­den val­leys not usu­ally seen by the pub­lic.

Af­ter five years of sup­port since the Suf­folk Walk with a Fork be­gan, Macken­zie-David Events will once again be spon­sor­ing the event, along with As­pall, bring­ing some of the finest cui­sine and cy­der the lo­cal area has to of­fer. Macken­zie David Events is the main lunch stop, pro­vid­ing veni­son kof­tas with coleslaw, salad and yo­ghurt which walk­ers can wash down with a re­fresh­ing As­pall cy­der. There will also be home-grown mu­si­cal en­ter­tain­ment.

Beak­fast will be served by the tea rooms at Helm­ing­ham Hall, and the walk con­cludes with Alder Tree Cream Ice. Other pro­duc­ers in­clude The Fish Hut, James White Drinks, Suf­folk Salami, Fair­field Farm Crisps and The Cheese & Pie Man.

Tick­ets £23 per per­son (chil­dren un­der five go free, dogs wel­come) from www.ormis­ton­fam­i­
