Youngsters got in the mood for Christmas at the weekend after Sudbury’s Tesco supermarket organised a skating rink for customers.

Store manager Richard Cole said: “We wanted to put on a selection of fun events for our customers to thank them for shopping with us throughout the year. The ice rink was fantastic and created a very festive atmosphere.

“It was great to be able to host the event for families and make a normal shopping trip a little more exciting.”

The rink was part of a series of Christmas-themed events the Springlands Way supermarket is putting on, and it says it is considering having another ice rink in the new year.
