The risk when you use an air gun in public like this twat in Framlingham is it could prompt an armed response from the police ... and this is Chrismasy, a Halesworth scout hut burnt to the ground on Christmas morning.

Today will be the Framlingham Station's bar manager Sophie Shane's last behind the bar as she's leaving to administer liquid therapy to golfers ... won't be the first time she's left, last time was to go travelling in Australia. New bar manager will be Chelsea Lydford (on the right), our grateful blessings on them both.

Nice to have some stuff happening mid-week. Tonight Swervy World launch their new album (cd and vinyl) at the John Peel Centre Stowmarket (we've yet to visit) on an admission by donation basis and also tonight a joint Suffolk Constabulary/Suffolk Horsewatch event in Swilland ... tomorrow night Slice of Life present The Fitzrovia Radio Hour in what was the Shalom Centre Framlingham (and again we've yet to visit).

If (or perhaps more inevitably when) Taylor Wimpey (makes a change from Hopkins Home) build 200 homes by Fairfield Rd Framlingham maybe BT will get round to doing something about that hole in the ground that's been there for at least a year.

Apart from giving the world Stephen Fry past presidents of the Cambridge Footlights have included WS Gilbert of Gilbert and Sullivan, Peter Cook, Eric Idle and (why does this not surprise us) David Mitchell. In 2000 we saw the Footlights in the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds. We saw the 2013 show Saturday night in Framlingham ... things have changed, no longer conventional revue more Stuart Lee type pulling the nature of comedy apart but that didn't stop it be very funny. All four performers were skilled, had the show down pat and we particularly liked the extended solo mime piece by Rosa Robson ... absolutely no walking against the wind. Keep bringing this stuff to Fram Slice of Life, the mental gene pool needs to be expanded.

No soapboxing this year on Framingham's Market Hill but equally entertaining off road soapboxing quite a ways down New Road on land we hadn't realised was the college's. Encouraging to see how many drivers were young women and young women drivers clearly enjoying themselves. PCSO Christian Hassler's radar gun showed top speeds around 20 mph and the only dodgy bit for us was on a course that only turned left inside line at the start was determined by who barged their way there first. Great stuff and again next year please.

A lorry with Demolition written on it and the size of Berkshire tried to get up Stately Terrace in Framlingham this morning, eventually he realised he wanted the Black Barn.

More pix of the Dunwich Dynamo in the early morning around Framlingham; a charmingly moist lady (early on the mist was so heavy it felt like rain) and two spaniels enjoying the ride. The Gentleman Plumber's pop up cafe by the water tower served until gone 11am, sold out (coffee and tea is free) of everything including the vegetarian sausages but only just broke even and that's not counting everybody's time (the GP was on his feet for 12 hours).

We were surprised to discover that the building at the back of the Lemon Tree Framlingham which for a bit B&G used to sell fishing tackle was once the fire station, didn't stop the 1905 Fore Street fire though did it? It's now in da cottage selling collectables, design, artisan chocolate and by mid-morning yesterday most of Andy Cole's lovely bread had already gone. They are open Fridays, Saturdays and by appointment.

4:10pm: Finally ... the Beeb's figures show Labour and UKIP taking seats from Tories, LibDems and the two Greens have gone. ITV shows not much change in nearthecoast constituencies but around midday yesterday the Framlingham poll's presiding officer was reported as saying it was a good turn out. So if you voted good for you.

Providing a plot line Sunday for the BBC's very punted The Village 1916 (two years into the Great War) was the first time this country used conscription to man its army, and didn't the great and the good use them well. So Private J Potter from Bedfield couldn't have been a conscript but this 1915 note from his mum on a postcard of Framlingham's Market Hill is still very poignant.

Poignant to reflect that Dr Stephen Norton passed away five years ago last Sunday after only just over a year's retirement and having served Framlingham for 33 years. We feel confident that he is still missed by the many who benefited from his careful consideration.
