With our colleagues at Suffolk Artlink, we’re encouraging communities to celebrate #SuffolkDay by sharing their creativity on their doorsteps, and one of the ways people can do this is with a Suffolk Cando! A ‘Cando’ is the Suffolk version of a limerick or Haiku, and a way to celebrate something, perhaps a little quirky and overlooked, about our county. It usually has four lines and it can rhyme here and there, if you want. One line is usually a question and thas roight nice if you get a bit of Suffolk in, y’know talk proper. There are tips on how to write one on Suffolk Artlink’s Make, Do & Friends Blog site, and why not combine your Cando with a creative display in your front garden, to share it with your neighbourhood as part of your  #FrontGardenGalleries exhibition? Don’t forget to share your ‘Cando’ to the blog, and also to our Heart of Our Community Facebook page or to Twitter using the hashtags #SuffolkDay #SuffolkCando #FrontGardenGalleries. Dunt yew wurry, any ol’one ‘cando’ it!

Encouraging our neighbours to come out and chat about the displays would be a lovely way to round off #LonelinessAwarenessWeek!
