Yesterday the Framlingham library car park impressively had no parked cars. It did have a land girl, military vehicles, motorbikes and lots of other stuff to launch John Bridges new book A Suffolk Town in Wartime - Framlingham 1939 to 1945. We were told there had been a queue all morning for signed copies.

♫ The Blaxhall Ship has a very honorable folk music history. FolkEast are continuing the tradition with Friday night concerts in the village hall. Next month the second concert of season starts on the 12th with the Melrose Quartet.
♫ Afraid we don't get the enthusiasm for tribute bands so somewhat surprised we found ourselves being nostalgic for the Spice Girls (our SG favourite was Slapper Spice). Musical Wannabe - The Spice Girls Show at the Lowestoft Marina on the 28th.

Outrageous to be thinking about Christmas in September but if you need to post pressies by surface mail/International Economy to Australia, New Zealand or lots of other non-European destinations they need to be posted by next Friday.
Belated congrats to Norfolk Brawds who were promoted to Tier 1 at last weekend's roller derby British Championships (started as the End of the World Series then transmogrified into the Heartland Series).

♫ Be inspired by martial trumpets and drums, the 'airy violin', the 'amorous flute' and the wondrous organ! The East Anglian Academy of Early Music's concert Hail! Bright Cecilia tomorrow week in St Michael's Framlingham includes guest Kings Singers newbie Edward Button.
Why are there so few baskets in the Framlingham Coop? Did they give some to a poor supermarket that had none?
Next month Common Ground Theatre tour The Mariner (A musical adaptation of ...) around East Anglia with female community choirs. For this tour East Anglia takes in Chipping Ongar once one end of the Central Line. CG follow on with The Scarlet Pipistrelle for Christmas.

The Halesworth Arts Festival returns for the 17th time in the middle of next month and as always the programme is intriguingly entertaining. Opera-lele return, silent film The Cat and the Canary with live drums and piano, poet Roger McGough and closes with a James Bond concert hosted by the divine Madeline Smith.
Those bigger garden wheelie bins (they're green) we were going to get in August? It's October/November now.
JOB Laundry Assistant wanted in Framlingham, there are 23 bullet points in the job description but no mention of the sordid matter of coin.

At today's Zombie Evacuation in Hockwold cum Wilton (it's near Lakenheath) Nursie and Gingham Girl had clearly been street muggers in a previous life. As always good fun, unlike last year it didn't rain and perhaps the baby zombie was the scariest of all. Back again about the same time next year and a charity colour run is being planned for next April.
