Inspector Neil ReidThis is Inspector Neil Reid nobly wearing his hat because we asked him to.  He's now stationed at Leiston and newly commands the Aldeburgh, Framlingham, Leiston and Saxmundham Safer Neighbourhood Teams ... and he cycled to work today.  Here's his bio.

We didn't get a good look driving past but what used to be the barbers in Saxmundham, near the lights?  Now seems to be a gallery.

PCSOs Jamie Newson and Thora Taylor at Saxmundham Middle School ~ pic contributed Today Police Community Support Officers Jamie Newson and Thora Taylor are making the second of three visits this week to Saxmundham Middle School to highlight the Lets Get A Life! campaign.  The campaign tackles anti-social behaviour by engaging with young people and encouraging all sections of the community to interact, breaking down our often stereotypical views of each other.

SomerfieldThat's disheartening.  The toilets in the Saxmundham Somerfield, which are right by the checkout, are locked after 6pm because of "continued vandalism".

Here's a bit of solid gold, a 1950s train journey on the Saxmundham-Aldeburgh branch calling at Thorpe Halt ... accompanied by Flanders and Swan ... and we've just worked out that the boy standing seemingly dangerously on the track is holding up the single track token for the driver.

The back of the White Hart and the front of Somerfields

It's a while since we've actually been to Saxmundham so when we visited last weekend there were a lot of changes.  You can no longer drive down the side of the White Hart but the pub does retain a car park at the back.  You get to it by driving all the way round Somerfields ... who don't have Patak's lime pickle but at least have Sharwood's which is more than the Fram Solar has.

You can no longer drive down the side of the White Hart The High Street is poshing up with an art gallery, what was the gent's outfitters is now designer shop Cotton Tree , the jewellers who were call Crapnockett and Sons or some suchWas W. Wells and Son now soon to be The Store are now Jackey L, the second hand book shop that closed Saturday afternoons so the owner could get to the football now sells cards and the other hardware shop is about to become The Store.  Are all near the coast towns going the same way as Aldeburgh?
