 Airfield MuseumBugattis at Parham Airfield with guests an XK Coupe, a BMW, a Frazer Nash BMW (with a cigarette lighter we at first thought the dashboard light), and a Morris Garage MG.  Though some Bugattis were clearly for racing others were intended for the glitterati to holiday on the Côte D'Azur but inexplicably there's nowhere to put your evening clothes ... or anything else.  We did ask two owners about the total absence of boots, glove boxes or anywhere to put anything but it was like asking why Harley's have tiny petrol tanks, if you have to ask you don't understand.

Election hustings at Wingfield BarnsWe attended our first election hustings yesterday, it was in the Wingfield Barns and organised by the Country Landowners Association.  There was pretty much one of each flavour candidate but only Labour's Jack Abbot and the Green's Rhodri Griffiths (he lives in

Parham

) standing in Central Suffolk.  To be honest we didn't stay long and during that time the audience neither booed or cheered but it was nice to see some election activity.

Airfield Museum for The Official Opening and Dedication of the Moller Building but were a day late.  (Useless?
