Empty Pool by Bob FoyersFramlingham camera club's most recent competition was Abandoned Buildings and we particularly like Bob Foyers' Empty Pool, the three dimensioness of an empty swimming pool is always unexpected.  The club meets at Brandeston village hall and you're always welcome.

Bridge Farm Brandeston Open DayLast time we visited Bridge Farm Brandeston a combination of expecting a mini business park and missing a turning left us bemused and confused as it's an absolutely charming cluster of farm outbuildings.  It's their open day tomorrow 2-5pm and worth the effort.

Arabella Marshall glass artistLast Sunday we went to Bridge Farm BrandestonHenrietta Inman pâtissière (seemed rather more Cretingham than Brandeston to us) for Arabella Marshall's open studio.  To call Bridge Farm an industrial unit is a complete misnomer as it's a rural idyll (we drove past it the first time) of small businesses including a carpenter, fitted kitchens, shepherd's huts and last weekend a pop up cafe from Henrietta Inman.

The Brewer has given us the bad news that the hop farm just outside Sibton Hop harvest Sibton 2006has given up and it might be the last one in Suffolk ... although there could be another at Monewden at least.  Either way we hope the splendidly industrial machinery at Sibton has found a home and the Brewer is modestly confident he can keep the character of his beers with other hops ... and the barley still comes from Brandeston.

St George's Day

Last week a Charsfield garage was broken into and petrol pinched, four chainsaws stolen in Brandeston but just one in Stratford St Andrew; two disc cutters burgled in Melton over the weekend, worryingly three shotguns, two rifles and ammo stolen in Otley yesterday but the good news is a man's Rotary watch was handed in to Woodbridge police station Saturday.

good crowd soon arrived for the private view of photography and art, we particularly like the paintings to the right as you enter the hall ... yeah, a proper journalist would have got the artist's name.  The show continues all this weekend.
