A nature area behind The Quay Theatre has been described by volunteers as “Sudbury’s best kept secret”, after being given a new lease of life.

A group of volunteers associated with the theatre have worked to introduce plants to the towpath behind the building in Quay Lane in an effort to draw more people to this little-known spot.

Theatre manager Sharon Buckler told the Free Press that the project had made a massive difference, with many visitors now using the area during the summer months.

“Because it’s such a lovely location right by the river, we wanted it to be more appealing to the public,” she said.

“It was a bit bland before, but now it’s full of colour and very inviting. It has bloomed magnificently.”

Volunteer Bryan Thurlow added: “The towpath is looking very colourful at the moment. It really is a beautiful spot to take your drinks from the Quay bar on a summer evening.”
