THE many iconic sights of Sudbury can now be sent to family and friends living further afield thanks to a new postcard.

Featuring all three of the town’s churches, The Quay Theatre, Gainsborough’s statue and The Croft, the postcard has been designed by Sudbury resident and photographer Chris Wiles.

Mr Wiles, from Friars Street, said he believed his creation was unique as it included so many of the town’s popular places and buildings.

“People that have seen the card have been impressed by the number of views on it and say they have never seen anything like it before,” said the 52-year-old.

Mr Wiles, a former Sudbury Upper School teacher, added that he was inspired to make the postcard by his love of the area.

“I have always loved Sudbury and photography,” he said.

I was just looking around the town and came up with the idea of doing a postcard of what you associate with Sudbury.”

The card, which also includes pictures of the town hall and the water meadows, is available from Kestrel Bookshop in Friars Street and the Kiosk in Borehamgate Precinct priced 50p.
