Brundish Christmas fair in the village halBloody Christmas ... eh?It was welcomingly warm and difficult to move around in the Brundish village hall Saturday but we got to see Daddy Christmas, had a cup of tea with mince pie and for the first time poked a fresh strawberry into a chocolate fountain ... it tasted like a deluxe Jaffa cake gone mad.  10am to noon this Thursday it's the Christmas Coffee Shop in the Brundish village hall.

Tina Bradshaw at the Halesworth CutTina Bradshaw eastern life coach starts by serving audience members from a teapot special tea that turns out to be white wine ... it goes on from there.  Last night in the Halesworth Cut she was predominantly comic parody but affectionate and endearing parody with a little actual counselling, or perhaps rather more a group of friends talking with one of their number who has opened up a little.  She is a complete one off, catch her if you can.
