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.

 JOBS  In Framlingham the College needs a kitchen assistant and for maternity cover an ICT technician and perhaps something to do with the swarm of developers who presently infest the town a labourer ... #itusedtobenicetown eh?

The 2014 Women's Tour in FelixstoweBlimey!  Person or persons unknown kept this a bit quiet: Wednesday 13th June the 2018 Women's Tour of Britain will start on the Market Hill Framlingham, do a big loop taking in Wickham Market and Ipswich then return to Framlingham before finishing in Southwold.  In 2014 the third stage start in Felixstowe was an easy going and enjoyable affair with the riders enjoying the attention they perhaps don't get in their home countries ... hopefully it'll be the same in Fram.

Odd 'Diverted traffic' sign in Fairfield Road FramlinghamConsidering Fairfield Road Framlingham is closed for two months between Fairfield Crescent and Brick Lane there's more traffic than you might expect at the Fore Street end.  The Diverted traffic sign at the Fore Street junction (and there's a second sign as well) seems oddly unneeded.  Is it to tell the residents of The Knoll and Fairfield Road how to get to Brick Lane?

Valentine's Day

Dining & Fuction SuiteThough the Framlingham Barclays' Framlington might be described as viral our 2007 Fuction pic of the adjacent Crown Hotel was only ever mildly infectious.  The sign was for the opening of the converted stables at the rear of the Crown as Reubens.  Round about this time we saw the teenage Ed Sheeran cycle past the historic hotel but not any Ipswich Town footballers.

Crikey!  Is it really five years since the chip van stopped visiting Framlingham?

Darren and Gosia with the old electricsThe temporary traffic lights in Station Road Framlingham promised for yesterday haven't appeared but there's road digging on the Market Hill.  The elderly dodgy power points for the market are being replaced with galvanised new arrangements.  Fishmonger and market supervisor Darren Smith says they are a big improvement and we'd guess safer.

The road closure in College Road Framlingham has been replaced with traffic lights.

Ah, when the College Road Framlingham closure hopefully finishes at the end of next week it'll be followed by five to six weeks of traffic lights but it's alright because Persimmon Homes sent out some letters ... we didn't get one.
