Post game hugging - Cards v StallionsAfter yesterday's 03-36 loss to the Wembley Stallions an Ipswich Cardinals coach pointed out to his players that as usual the Card's were way outnumbered, the Stallions were top of the division and the visiting coach said it had been the Stallions' hardest game so far this season.  We much admire the Card's perseverance but just a few more players would make such a difference.

Surrey Roller Derby in NorwichToo hot for roller derby In Norwich last Sunday but we did enjoy Surrey Roller Girl Ampersand What!'s good tempered interaction with an outside ref confirming what she was being penalised for.  Derby name of the day Crazy Cat Lady, not clever, not punningly witty but probably refreshingly true.

Fram Flyers' Friday Five 2016Today the end of this working week it's the Framlingham Flyers' Friday Five a five mile road race.  It's the Suffolk county five mile championship and a field in the region of 500 is expected so the Saxmundham and Badingham roads will be crowded around 7:30pm.  Hopefully the race director's comments to the runners will be as amusing as last year.

In Lowestoft last night this must have been scary for the mother.

Framlingham College JOB  Framlingham College is recruiting a full time database application developer ... and it would appear there is such a thing as free lunch because along with gym membership that's part of the deal.

If like us you enjoy films where nothing much happens try the one off showing 8pm tonight at the Aldeburgh Cinema of The Consequences of Love ... surprisingly it's a sort of mafia movie.

Very pleased to welcome back Charnwood Genealogy, there's an advertising slot available at the moment ... email us.
