A man from Redlingfield is to walk 30 miles along the Suffolk Coastal Path, from Lowestoft to Aldeburgh, to raise money for charity.

Tony Freitas will be taking on the challenge to raise money for Redlingfield Doorstep Green.

He is hoping to raise £1,000 for the cause, which is looking to convert a two acre piece of farmland into a recreation and wildlife amenity for the village.

The aim is to add to the three quarter acre recreation area called Redlingfield Doorstep Green, which was created 10 years ago.

Janet Norman-Philips, Redlingfield parish clerk said: 'For a tiny village there are a large number of children and young people.

'What we didn't realise at the time was just how popular the green was going to be and that it was far too small. Over the past few years we have raised £27,000 to buy an additional two acres of agricultural land to extend the Doorstep Green.'
