Love your co-opArriving back near the coast yesterday we did our shopping in the Wickham Market co-op ... it was so calm and unhurried compared with the Hackney Tescos near Chelmsford ... ahhhh (we thought) nice to be back ... on the back road to Easton we dodged two hatchbacked mums with hectic lifestyles and a flying post van ... Suffolk eh? (we thought).

♫When we visited a Rabble Chorus rehearsal in Easton three years ago we were impressed by Kirsty Logan's arrangements but there wasn't that many of them.  Now there's enough for a flash mob in the Ipswich John Lewis with Barbara Ann Spencer taking lead.  PS: This song and choir on the cd of last year's Maverick Festival.♫

Stowmarket on market dayEaston in the 1950s, a bowler hat being worn without irony in Stowmarket, that windmill in Thorpeness and Framlingham's Market Hill when the pharmacy was a chemist and had a flagpole ... clearly Fram's always had a flag fetish.

Dial M for MurgatroydIt's maybe a decade since we saw an Eastern Angles Christmas show in Ipswich but remember fondly Ferry Across The Waveney and a splendidly pneumatic guest appearance by Lara Croft in another Christmas show.  Peppery Prods who put on the excellent shows at Easton Farm Park have dickered a two for one offer for the three preview shows of Dial M for Murgatroyd, just say Peppery when ordering tickets.

Easton pre-school teddy jumpEaston pre-school may be a bit confused about when they have an anniversary due but Friday they knew how to run a teddy jump raffle without that dour chanting Yellow one four six that too often mars a social occasion.  Despite threatening dashes of rain the teddies jumped triumphantly.  Possibly the liveliest pre-school near the coast it has a few vacancies, a new lunch club and now takes children from two years old.

Suffolk Punch colt Easton WilliamWe went to Easton farm park Monday to see the Suffolk Exhibitions show and particularly liked the lino cuts of Helen Maxfield and (even though they are a bit scary) the felt vessels of Tracy Hetherington ... but got seriously distracted by the farm animals.  It's the time of year when everything's having young with Suffolk Punch colt Easton William the unquestionable star.

watching the teddy bearsAstoundingly the Easton pre-school second teddy jump was even more exciting than the first.  Behind the recently refurbished village hall very young motorists were savouring the anticipation by crashing into each other with a polite Excuse me!

More yoga, yes yogaWith a council grant Easton village hall has new joists, new floor, raised ceiling and a paint job that altogether makes it a much more pleasant space ... plus a mountain of new stuff for the pre-school.  At today's pre-school open day the almost overwhelming amount going on included manicures, no really, manicures, yoga with the children surprisingly engaged and guinea pig petting.  When we left three new families had joined but still space for children from 18 months upwards.

The Easton RabbleThe Easton Rabble (what a great name, you're already on their side) are a comparatively newly formed choir but already have some 30 turning out (including half a dozen blokes) and last night were laughing a lot and making a wonderful sound to these ears.  New singers of course welcome (don't have to read) and to get some stage time the choir will cheer up your event for free. ♫
