When we visited Hoxne three Christmases back to see Vix and the Kix (she does make the effort) we were impressed by the public festive lights and if anything they're better this year and a couple of villages away the hanging baskets at St Mary's Wilby are still being tended and have gained seasonal decorations.

The Stonham Aspal Ten Bells may no longer be functioning as a pub but the Shepherd and Dog the other side of the A140 had an A board saying Open All Day when we passed last Sunday ... mind you it has an 'eaterie' ...

We've noted before the Haverhill Arts Centre has become a try out zone for Himoff Thetellies so weren't stunned but a little surprised that nice Stephen Mr Cleverclogs Fry is playing there next month. Then we read more carefully, it's a broadcast of him on stage in a large town ... a broadcast? <in Lady Bracknell voice>.
Marcus Brigstocke's Diss Corn Hall gig at the end of next month is halfway though a proper tour ... maybe it's because it's Norfolk.

♫ 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.

Last week a large lump of tools stolen from a Chillesford workshop and a Woodbridge house burglary, a Walberswick caravan set fire to Sunday. and over £2,000 of jewellery burgled in Aldringham yesterday .... quite a crime wave by Suffolk standards.

Helmet Newton has told us he has the same problem, recognising skaters without their helmets. At Suffolk Roller Derby in Bury St Edmunds last month we introduced Yvonna Bone (without her helmet) as Malicious Wishes <blush> so gratifying that Yvonna has picked up a second fave on Flickr.

At last Thursday's Stackton Tressel town council meeting Major Gervaise DeRoute strongly advocated that the the militants who occupied the Little Mutterings' phone box should be declared a terrorist organisation. Chairman Dame Celia Baumhugger declined the suggestion commenting as this is Suffolk there was nothing organised about the protest and what's more she was surprised anybody could get in the telephone box.

Weekend before last perhaps instead of having a summer fete Cratfield had an open weekend which impressively included The Poacher being open all day. What a successful idea, the event raised over £4,000 to support the church and village hall. Thanks to Candy Blackham and Geoff Moore for the info.

In Aldeburgh yesterday we got see the Broadside Boys for the first time and though they weren't dressed Suffolk their anthem Suffolk Punch was suitably and rousingly patriotic. They were part of the Aldeburgh Festival's Musicircus which is maybe a 100 bands of absolutely all flavours playing close by each other along the front and it is absolutely all flavours; school choirs, string quartets, ukes, a Hendrix wannabe, a folk quartet with the melody taken by children's tinkle bells, three vibraphones and a drummer playing latin-american ... absolutely everything and it was wonderful.

In this part of Suffolk you're more likely to be run down by a mobility scooter than an inline skater but we do like its been here forever bumptiousness ... and though unfair to say it's still the 1950s near the coast we have heard that sugar rationing didn't end in Stackton Tressel until 1986 ...

Yesterday morning five (rather slim) Little Mutterings militant's occupied the village's telephone box (Coins Not Accepted) and are demanding that the village should leave Suffolk Coastal district council and join Waveney district council.

We've been to Suffolk Roller Derby and Bury St Edmunds a lot over the past months and particularly enjoyable was watching visiting and scrimmaging Australian coach Sally Chuck Taylor bootie steer the opposing pivot off the track on to the infield, equally entertaining was SRD's coach Jason Ryan's response to participating in a 27 in 5 drill ... but the BIG news is FINALLY next month roller derby in Suffolk!

The Badingham White Horse should be re-opening soon and roadside signs speaking of shares and the Ten Bells in Stonham Aspal indicate a community buy out but the Internet shows it seems to have failed at the beginning of the month.

Perhaps prompted by recent happenings in nearby Framlingham chairman of Stackton Tressel town council Dame Celia Baumhugger yesterday donated many of her clothes to the town's Tree Protection League charity shop. Some of the clothes were worn at a council meeting attended by Suffolk county council ex-chief executive Anthea Hall seen on the right.

Blimey! Did we get lost in and around Bury St Edmunds late last night (we're un-satnaved at the mo') when the A14 was closed for road repairs. The diversion signs assumed only drivers leaving the A14 needed to be told what to do plus there were bandit diversion signs for something else entirely. BE WARNED overnight closures continue until the weekend.

Anorak Alert 3: Lovejoy (the later series without Eric and Lady Jane showing on Freeview channel Drama) may be set in "East Anglia" but they seem to spend a lot of time in and around pubs with parasols branded Ridley's an Essex brewery and we certainly recognise the Moreton Massey near Harlow masquerading as Suffolk.
