... a bit Suffolk
|th 19 Jul|
Bury St Edmunds may not be near the coast but it is in Suffolk, was the county town of West Suffolk and is home to brewer Greene King and roller rink Curvemotion so it now has its own page, and why not.

This afternoon in Fairfield Road Framlingham two understandably grumpy walking visitors who had followed the Castle Keep signs and still couldn't find the castle and keys found in the Fen Meadow.

Almost too sunny yesterday on Framlingham market and in the evening the Rendham Mummers were crammed into the garden at the back of the Sibton White Horse. We know we're not supposed to like the French with their nice food, world cup and Tour de France but we so enjoyed last night's Gallic aristocrats we had to suppress a Allez le bleu!
Looks like it probably won't rain today St Swithin's day.

Our A to Z of ntc helps you find your town or village but unlike a satnav it kills 99% of all known germs, doesn't have a patronising voice and has never knowing undersold.
Sign in Ashbocking advertising free horse manure not surprisingly by the stables with a dressage ring right on the B1077.

With our relationship with the French currently being a little tetchy, the Mummers will transport you back to a time when our relationship with the French was errrrrr still tetchy. The Rendham Mummers at the Sibton White Horse 8pm tomorrow evening with Brothers In Arms, you'll l♥ve them and it's free!

To link to one of our internal header pages the syntax is always all lower case with no dashes or underscores; so Framlingham is www.nearthecoast.com/framlingham.
Hollesley gets its own page, and why not?

A motorcyclist is in a critical condition after colliding Friday evening with a tractor and trailer on the B1119 presumably between Framlingham and Sweffling. From the police report the farm vehicle must have been crossing the B1119?

♫ A very large tv screen kept the fifth Stradisphere in Stradbroke informed about the football, and Saturday night we got to see surprisingly mature well known trouble makers from Harleston Red Mecca. In the tent Das Fenster and the Alibis were a very theatrical (we like that) rockabilly type trio with stand up bass followed by Sam and the Womp who had a million selling number one in 2012 (no, we hadn't heard of them either). The Balkan influenced trumpet (yes, we know) of Sam etc prompted dancing and intriguingly entertained us.

♫ Magnificent weather for another brilliant Maverick producing some wonderful hats and for us the newbs on the Medicine Show stage perhaps the most rewarding, especially Banjo Jen. Our ears pricked at a very lateral keyboard solo from the Cordovas closing the Southern Sounds stage Saturday.. When we pointed out that the lead singer appeared to really fancy himself Rachael's friend asked for my long lens to get a better look and then said If I was that good looking I'd fancy myself.
Sunday a very pleasant conversation with Alan Mutimer and we suggested that Hachfest might return in its original form Hacheston Music Day ... who knows?
