Despite the filthy weather (and our word wasn't it windy on the Aldeburgh front last night) a very decent house in the Jubilee Hall for Justin and the Argonauts. The five handed cast tackle a multiplicity of characters (our favourites were the Scottish hand maidens) and musical numbers. Common Ground's tour continues tomorrow at the New Wolsey Studio Ipswich.
On our way home two people in front of the Aldeburgh cinema were wringing a rug out ...

It's the Aldeburgh Carnival today. Enjoyed it last year though it was difficult to get a good view.

It was a good sized and appreciative house in the Jubilee Hall Aldeburgh last night for Common Ground's one act comedy Stranded. Some effective adlibbing by Julian Harries when inadvertently a vase fell breaking some china That was five pounds in the Red Cross shop and we enjoyed the analysis that Sweep was the maverick one of Sooty and Sweep.

Aldeburgh was looking very yellow this afternoon for the stage one finish of the 2015 Women's Tour. We missed stage winner Lizzie Armitstead crashing just after the line but did notice unhappy faces in the team area afterwards and later on King's Field discovered it was the unfortunate Ms Armitstead being airlifted out.

The DAB (digital) radio network is to get 182 new transmitters with near the coast benefiting from new transmitters at Aldeburgh and Blythburgh. Picking the bones out of a government document is an unsatisfying experience and we can't find a date for these two newbies beyond completion of all by 30 September 2016.

The trick to finding the Aldeburgh Community Centre (a local community centre for local communities) entrance is it's round the back. Once we'd worked that out we found it crammed with help organisations and charities though the police easily had the mostest and bestest freebies. Organiser PCSO Terry Barrow told us the day had been doubly useful with not only the public but organisations finding out about each other ... depressing though to discover that even a place like Aldeburgh has a food bank and rough sleepers.
