We arrived a little early at Brandeston village hall, a very attractive airy space but invisible from the road in last night's pitch black, as setting up
was just finishing. A 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.

Gwen Randall's last gig as retiring Framlingham College head was to open the Royal British Legion art show at Brandeston Hall yesterday. We arrived a few minutes late and there was such a good turn out we couldn't get in to hear the justafewwords; then we were so busy snapping people we didn't really take in the show ... but did soak up that it's very broad in flavour and exciting much appreciation in the viewers. The show runs all this bank holiday weekend.

Great to see last week such committed running about at Brandeston Hall. Some nine local schools competed in an under nines hockey and mini-rugby (10 mins each way, no kicking (of either ball or opponent), three man scrum that mustn't push) tournament. Sensibly widespread wearing of gum shields, surprisingly rowdy touchline support from rugby mums, touchline heckling from coaches Xavier, how many times have we practiced that? What's the point of hanging two yards off? and the Brandeston girlies won the hockey!
The Hangar Dance last month celebrating Brandeston Hall's 60th anniversary raised over £600 for the charity Help For Heroes.
