Sara Allin in 2007 at the Munchbox CafeIf you've been around Framlingham long enough you may remember that what's now the Common Room was once Graham King Watchmakers then very briefly an Indian takeaway before Sara and Pete Allin re-opened it as The Munchbox Cafe.  They made it a welcoming meeting place serving very reasonably priced straight ahead food and it soon gathered a fan club.  Tragically in 2006 Pete had a fatal heart attack in the kitchen.  A year later Sara understandably moved on.  We were much saddened to learn this week that Sara still only in her forties passed away in June from breast cancer ... taken far too soon.
