We arrived at the Brundish harvest supper last night far too late for the beef casserole but got a glass of good wine, a taste of the excellent cheese board and to go with the coffee home made sweets. Though the peppermint creams were the superstar models the chocolate squares contained Brundish foraged hazelnuts ... well you can work it off with some zumba.

When we set off lunchtime for the Brundish village fete Sunday there was a torrential with hail thunderstorm that flooded (untypically these days) the bottom of Fore Street Framlingham. In Brundish the adults were either sheltering in pergolas or The Crown but the youngsters ignored the wetness and continued footballing. Funds raised will pay for war memorial plaques on the village sign.

To raise funds for the church's repair 10am-6pm today and over the weekend there is a selling show of art in the Brundish parish church St Lawrence with it's truly lovely clear glass main window. The church is a bit hidden away in the straggle that is Brundish but there are signs and for free you get to look round the exquisite Chantry gardens next door where the sculpture from the show is set.

We were surprised when Argo won Bafta best film back in February and we didn't get to see it in Aldeburgh (love sitting there doing nothing waiting for the film to start). Brundish are showing it this Thursday as the last film of their winter season ... looks a bit American. Is it us or are trailers getting longer?

That Apache attack helicopter around Brundish early last night may have been training but our word it was flying low, wouldn't have fancied having our washing out on the line ... mind you with that downdraught it would dry quicker.

Brundish chilled down last night with a Royal Quiz in the village hall. The questions were all about the royal family, a picture name the royal baby competition for the half time break, several tiaras and question master David Mulrenan suitably dressed though out. A couple of people told us how well organised it had been in Framlingham for the big telly and what lovely food the Brundish Crown's new landlord is serving.

With all the understandable fuss there's been about the King's Speech it'll probably be a good idea to book a ticket for the Brundish Cinema (still has an intermission and is licensed!) this Thursday.

Tomorrow the Great Glemham village hall film is A Man For All Seasons.
Brundish cinema next month is The Kids Are Alright with the gorgeous Julianne Moore (we love her nose) and excitingly in April it's The King's Speech, can't wait! (Karen from Outnumbered plays Princess Margaret or have we already said that?)

Although Daddy Christmas was rather lonely at the Brundish Christmas fair this
afternoon the aromatic mulled wine and general conviviality was making a warm welcoming atmosphere in the village hall and some recently discovered old photos displayed on the wall certainly intrigued this snapper. More pix on Facebook, feel good Letters To Juliet for Brundish Christmas cinema Thursday.

This is Carl Wilson and Laxfield First Responders coordinator Laura Griggs demonstrating their pulse oximeter at this year's Brundish Makemerry. As their beat is very rural inevitably the ambulance tends to take longer to arrive so two responders go out on a call. Laura echoed Framlingham coordinator Leighton Page's observation that people are very generous giving money but what is needed most are more responders. If you want to help email Carl (remember you won't go out on your own:) or contact Leighton (Man in the Hat) on the board.

Harvesting was still going on well after midnight near Brundish (understandably with this morning's rain); a lorry the size of Berkshire was being loaded at the side of the road and the road had a golden patina of spilt grain on sharp corners, indeed one S bend had a couple of POLICE SLOW signs.

Brundish Makemerry last weekend was some eleven hours of non-stop sociability and jollies starting with the Makemerry in the garden of The Crown, on the way barbeque, concert, unveiling of the new village sign and ending up with fireworks. The Robert Hitcham maypole dancers were charming as usual and as usual the East African photographer got everyone to stand in straight lines and though the showers were sometimes quite heavy they never went on for too long ... excellent, love it!

Happy New Year! We think sanguine might be the word to describe the Brundish Crown's attitude to New Year' Eve last night, except we're not sure what sanguine means, and we may have missed a joke as the Red Wine Girls were drinking something red from bottles but it wasn't wine ...
