We like Thorpeness and its mere but haven't visited for some time. We've had a drink in the social club on the corner and enjoyed the village hallness of it, even in places the slight smell of damp evoking past village halls. The club is long closed but we heard at Christmas the cricket pavilion might have a pub night.

Easton in the 1950s, a bowler hat being worn without irony in Stowmarket, that windmill in Thorpeness and Framlingham's Market Hill when the pharmacy was a chemist and had a flagpole ... clearly Fram's always had a flag fetish.

We arrived at Thorpeness today for the 30th Heritage Coast run just in time to see the backs of the last departing group but didn't have to wait long for the first six mile runners to arrive back. A first timer told us he hadn't realised how much harder it was running on the sandy soil rather than tarmac and this year the flooding meant climbing up banks to skirt impromptu lakes. Congrats to the Saxmundham Rotary club for keeping at an event that has such an inclusive meld of walkers, fun and club runners ... though we'd like to see it in the sun one day:)
