Delayed from 2020 in the coming May we get to exercise our franchise and vote for
Suffolk's Police Crime Commissioner ... just three candidates.

Anorak Alert No.31: Dodie Smith's novel I Capture The Castle is set in
Suffolkbut the film adaptation has a beach scene that doesn't look like Suffolk to us.

Inevitably because of the lockdown no spring show from RoughCast this year but hopefully a summer tour of The Tempest. The itinerary around
East Suffolkincludes outdoor venues which is very promising as we much enjoyed the company's A Midsummer's Night Dream in the Laxfield Low House garden and 2019.

Stackton Tressel town council's Suffolkness committee has issued new guidelines. To be authentic
Suffolkyou 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 ...

We had to look up flâneur, apparently it means a man who saunters around observing society. So same problem in Suffolk as with street photography.

So Suffolk in Tier 4 from Boxing Day so even less of a Christmas than was anticipated but festive Framlingham is looking rather glamorous and lovely especially in Double Street where the advent windows are raising money for St Elizabeth Hospice and the Lebanon Appeal ... see you on the other side.

Saturday night's A Christmas Carol reading at the Fisher Theatre Bungay was much more produced than we anticipated for a reading; costumes, music and effects both sound and stage. We were much impressed by the theatre's courage to gut the seating to ensure social distancing.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that In Suffolk you are never more than five yards from an artist. Last night a BBC 2 doc about nearthecoast's very significant paint botherer Maggi Hambling, more than once the non-surgical mask was pulled down.

Born in Suffolk Daisy Cooper went to Framlingham College, was Suffolk Coastal prospective parliamentary candidate in 2010 and in 2014 looked like a shoo in for the Lib Dem presidency. Daisy is now MP for St Albans and this week was elected deputy leader of her party ... we need more politicians called Daisy.
Really like Scott Mortimer's Suffolk Noir cards set in Woodbridge. Packs of nine cards available at Browsers Bookshop in the Woodbridge Thoroughfare.

An arrest early last month in Ipswich has led to the recovery of multiple power tools from multiple burglaries and thefts across Suffolk. The constabulary web site has pictures and the police are asking potential owners to come forward.
