SAT 1st DEC 2.30-5pmThe tombola stallIf we'd checked our own What's On (or even the road signs) we wouldn't have arrived at the Brundish Christmas Fair ninety minute before it was due to start.  Either way the tombola stall looked very impressive, Santa's grotto was back again and a pleasant social occasion seemed assured.

We visited the Dennington Hall Farm open day last year and it was good fun, particularly the trailer ride.  This year we ventured a little further down the road to Brundish Lodge Farm where the open day was part of Linking Environment And Farming.Red Poll cattle hoping that it's feeding time

Brundish Lodge is in a beautiful location apart from the occasional Sunday biker clattering down the B1116.  There is a considerable amount of arable but this is contracted out to neighbours Dennington Hall Farm and farmer James Wells concentrates on his herd of Red Poll cattle.  Red Poll are both a dairy and meat breed traditionally associated with East Anglia and come from a mid-nineteenth century cross of the Norfolk Red and the Suffolk Dun.  James' young bull was theChristopher and two of the half dozen ferrets star of the herd but the calves had an endearing charm.

As we processed round the farm we discovered five or six magnificent horses, guinea fowl (who had taken to building their nests on the grass verge of the B1116!), the information exchange became two way when long  term neighbours shared their knowledge of the farm and at the end of the walk young Christopher Wells dived into a shed and emerged with literally armfuls of ferrets that charmed everybody and weren't in the least nippy.

James was so pleased with the open day he's planning an even bigger and better one for next year.

Loan wellies for the visitors

Robert Hitcham Maypole Dancers' away fixture went well at the Brundish Makemerry which is a pleasantly intimate affair and the pub stays open all afternoon.

Brundish Crown  des' dinners 26

A sunny day brought out Hugh, Las (under protest), Spadge on a motorbike, Malcolm, David (who was kind enough to forewarn the landlord), NaTCH, and John B too late to lunch but early enough to sink a few.  The landlord was all on his own due to a new grandchild but still supplied extremely enjoyable (Malcolm "enjoyed every pea" - but he might have been misheard) and substantial meals, well kept Adnams, and Adnams' new specialty beer to mark the Queen's Jubilee which is called ... Jubilee.  There was much guffawing, particularly about Hugh's strange misapprehension as to how Earl Soham is going to celebrate the aforementioned Jubilee.  AfARs from Pippin and Gib (still working).  (first visit  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)
