Police competing the three legged raceAt the Family Fun Day in Aldeburgh it was great fun to watch the local law enforcement community re-enact that jolly royal wedding copper ... butSuffolk Roadsafe also poignant as so many of the public services present are under threat.  We were particularly impressed by two dudes beavering under the Suffolk Roadsafe awning fixing bikes, they also teach bike maintenance and road safety ... not just cones in the playground safety but culminating in four hours on the public roads safety.  They are paid for by the county council, have had to reapply for their jobs and don't know if they'll be around next year.

BlackthornWelcome to new advertiser Suffolk Exhibitions who have a show in Aldeburgh next month, thank you to the Greener Garden Guy who has renewed his Leiston slot and it's cost Damini Custard just £1.21 to support Russian girlie symphonic metal band Blackthorn (we like the synchronised hair twirling).

Remains of Aldeburgh boatyard fireThat must have been quite a fire at the Aldeburgh boatyard yesterday morning, there's nothing left of the main boat shed.  A bystander who was there told us that being a boat yard there were many gas bottles on the site.  More pix on Facebook
