... a bit Suffolk
tu 12 May
Back in January we noticed that construction vehicles on the A14 improvements had gained a green flashing lamp along with the amber, port and starboard? The driver of this dumper in Infirmary Lane Framlingham explained the amber lamp shows the engine is running and via a seat sensor the green that a driver is onboard.

If not a crime wave around near the coast at least a ripple. Last night both Darsham and Framlingham petrol stations were burgled, Friday a quad bike was stolen in the Yoxford area and about the same time two expensive looking bicycles were stolen from a Woodbridge shed.

Suffolk, or at least Co-ops near the coast, have rediscovered the ice bucket challenge. Yesterday in front of a few socially distanced onlookers a very good handful of Framlingham Co-op staff were cheerfully dunked by their co-workers. If we'd paid more attention we would know which charity benefitted but we do know Wickham Market Co-op have been challenged to do the same thing.

♫ Man in the Hat's virtual hoedown last week was a triumph with a sea of appreciative comments. He's doing it again tomorrow week ... well why wouldn't you?

Walking and clapping on the Market Hill Framlingham 8pm last night we could hear saucepans being banged, a siren and clapping but it could easily do with more clappers next Thursday.

Sunday we had our first virtual dinner London-Dorset-Framlingham-Zurich via application Zoom and an iPad. Quite touching to see and hear Lady KRJ's two little boys chattering and eating spaghetti. Helps if you can get your device a little away, it puts you in context:)

Aldeburgh Cinema has closed for the duration so we won't get to see Emma this afternoon but the Woodbridge Riverside seems to be partially functioning. The Red Rooster festival near Thetford has been postponed to September and Life Arts have postponed April's Woodbridge festival to next year. All Snape Maltings music events cancelled until the end of April (we were lucky), the Phoenix Singers concert in Framlingham next month cancelled as is the Campsea Ashe Spring Fayre this Saturday and still only three virus cases in Suffolk.

Plenty of paracetamol and cat litter in the Framlingham Coop yesterday but judging by the shelf mouthwash is the new panic buy.

Tragedy! After 40 years the wonderful stationers Barnes Rosher slightly hidden in a corner of Framlingham's Market Hill is closing this Saturday the 29th ... so regrettably something else we'll be buying online. Why is everything happening on the 29th this February? What if it wasn't a leap year?

When what is now Carley Hill Hair and Framlingham Travel was Carley & Webb it had a small but enjoyable toy department. Shortly after C&W changed hands maybe 15 years ago we saw a supermarket trolley of toys being pushed away from from the shop. What goes round comes round and Bridges and Garrard are filling the retail gap.
