Sumo break dancer in Laxfield♫ At the back end of yesterday's admirably free entrance Laxfield Day Out we managed to separately and without noticing drop our press pass and ear plugs (they let you stand closer to the pa) but some nice ladies pointed them out ... Suffolk eh?  As you would expect Vix and the Kicks made the effort with three sets including some Joe Tex and Chic's Le Freak.

Vix playing in Hoxne and 2011Baron Du Dongleur has invited us to tomorrow's beer festival at Laxfield Low House, we suspect this might be partly prompted because Vix and the Kicks will be entertaining ... she does make the effort.

The Framlingham chip van's last nightA fish supper for one yesterday from the chip van outside the Framlingham Station had added poignancy as the van's not coming back anymore.  They will still visit Laxfield and this perhaps highlights that Fram now has three takeaways whereas fifteen years ago it was only the Silver Leaf and Greasy Gordon's which wasn't greasy it just alliterated and anyway wasn't open Thursday nights ... gonna miss the chip van.

What an nice change to have some half way decent weather yesterday for Mouth to Mouth's production of the musical Godspell in the Debenham Angel's garden.  As

Mouth to Mouth's Godspell in Debenham

always quirky, original and highly entertaining we were particularly pleased to see a ukulele move from the pit to centre stage.  Mouth to Mouth's garden tour continues this coming weekend at Hoxne, Framlingham, Orford and Laxfield.

Carl Wilson and Laura GriggsThis is Carl Wilson and Laxfield First Responders coordinator Laura Griggs demonstrating their pulse oximeter at this year's Brundish Makemerry.  As their beat is very rural inevitably the ambulance tends to take longer to arrive so two responders go out on a call.  Laura echoed Framlingham coordinator Leighton Page's observation that people are very generous giving money but what is needed most are more responders.  If you want to help email Carl (remember you won't go out on your own:) or contact Leighton (Man in the Hat) on the board.

Don't worry, they have to change roundEvents have been going on all week between the ten villages in this year's Inter Village Games.  Some were Look at this face.  Is it bovvered? physical including tennis and football, and some were not; but it all came together today on the Laxfield Playing Field.  There were events for real littlerlys and not so litterlys ; and the blond charmer below made a real commitment to the bat and bean bag race but got a bit slowed down by dropping her bean bag but was she bovvered?

The event that really calls for team work is the four on two planks and we thought the four girls in orange were going to do Stopping needs organisation tooit but   Weybread prevailed ... though stopping was a bit of a problem ... as it was in the three legged race.

The crowd were cheering the egg throwing but we had taken time out to eat one of the rather meaty burgers and for us the highlight was the third place decider between Dennington and Metfield in the tug of war.  The pull just went on and on and on with the crowd getting really involved.  Dennington won but at the price of Jason (who used to tend bar at the Framlingham Station in Neil Pascoe's time) being very slow to get up, we think he might have hurt his ankle.  A brilliant afternoon that makes you proud to be British!

Laxfield Low House (King's Head)  des' dinners 55

The Laxfield Low HouseMatt, The Brewer, Goddess Steph, Max, NaTCH, new chum John B and the tv presenter Peter Purves (who didn't know he was lunching with us) appeared to be irritating the barmaid ... though she seemed ready to be irritated.  Very well kept Adnams and Fullers London Pride, NaTCH did very well with a Farmer's Lunch which is a ploughman's with some substantial slices of ham and plum chutney instead of cheese.  Everybody else didn't do so well with luxury fish pie that contained raisins and the veggies arrived after The Brewer had finished his pie.  Conversation included the interesting fact that it cost's twice as much for Max to have his nails trimmed as NaTCH's mother.  (last visit ↓  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)

The Low House pub signDespite a miserable day attendees were Andy, Spadge in a blue Ginetta, NaTCH and Malcolm.  Malcolm combined his lunch with making a delivery of Low House Bitter which was sampled and approved.  The food could have been hotter but the conversation flowed heatedly.  "Does God exist?" was even briefly touched upon.  Apologies for absence received from Hugh.  (first visit  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)
