New bus shelter in Station RoadSpeak of a bus shelter and one is sure to appear.  There are three way temporary lights in Station and Victoria Mill Roads Framlingham today so a gang can install a replacement bus shelter maybe twenty yards nearer to Parham from the previous position.  We'll see how long this one lasts.

Meanwhile behind what was the Atlas Group and Earl Soham Vets in New Road Fram there are white vans, hiviz and safety helmets.

Bon Giovi at Stradisphere 2016♫ At Stradisphere last night in Stradbroke as so often at events it took darkness, the approaching show end and possibly Earl Soham Vic at £3.50/pint for the good sized crowd to fill in the empty space at the stage front.  Food, sweets and witty tie died babywear stalls and we much enjoyed three no bass player piece from Norwich The Signs.  The festival continues today with Oasis tribute Definitely Maybe topping tonight.

The Street Earl Soham circa 1921-1935There's no date for this card of The Street Earl Soham though the Pratts petrol pumps by the light car and what was The Falcon give a clue.  Pratts was the UK brand of the Anglo-American Oil Co and initially motor spirit was sold in cans, pumps started to appear in 1921 and the brand became Esso in 1935 so this card is somewhere around that window.

The Earl Soham Falcon c1907Haven't done one of these for a while and this time it's Earl Soham; the Falcon pub which was certainly still open in the 1980s, Brundish Lodge and a 1933 cricket match between the village and the East Anglian Daily Times.

Mr and Mrs Hugh Creighton have lived in Lacey Cottage on that nasty corner inMr and Mrs Hugh Creighton and daughters Earl Soham for 26 years.  Hugh has been and then not been a parish councilor.  They have raised three daughters, seen the Falcon, Thorolds the corner shop and the post office (after over a century) close, Tastebuds open become Eat Anglia and then close, and Earl Soham Brewery move from Maurice's chicken shed to the garage and then to Debenham.  We're surprised there hasn't been more change in 26 years ... at the end of the month they move to the south coast.
