Stackton Tresseltown council's Suffolkness committee has issued new guidelines. To be authentic Suffolk you should have a Co-op loyalty card, drink beer (meaning mild) not lager, know what squit is, who the manager of ITFC is and where Benhall and Little Mutterings are, and not use 'do' and 'does' the right way round like those la di da townies from that there London does ... owning a tractor helps ...

The Stackton Tressel Angry Fly couldn't serve it's signature dish chips with chips last night because the deep fat fryer had self destructed. Landlord Steph (he's originally from Little Mutterings) Crackedpole commented It was chaos for a while, we tried serving roasties with roasties but it wasn't the same ... but then nobody fried. Thankfully that there Ed Sheraton wasn't in as there was nothing marinated in tomato ketchup on the menu.

Yesterday at Stackton Tressel's monthly town council meeting the council's preparations for Brexit were discussed. These include stockpiling sticks, free walking lessons in case of petrol supply problems and a £100,000 contract with Seaborne Freight to supply emergency tree surgeons. For no apparent reason councillor Major Gervaise DeRoute described the Little Mutterings parish council as the rural political elite. A member of the public gallery expressed surprise that Major DeRoute still has a driving license.

Exhibits includes the alleged drain pipes PJ Proby famously split on stage ... twice, and repro breeches the Duke of Wellington wore to relieve himself before relieving somewhere. The show runs until October and then continues its tour of places where there's not a lot to do.

The Stackton Busy Club has appointed Mr Ristonde Town Events Manager after the town's 35 space Trees Car Park almost ran out of spaces at last year's Trouser Fest.
