Fred Squirrell passed away in March from cancer. Sunday in Framlingham about some 30 bikers assembled in the Elms Car Park for the 10am depart of the Fred Squirrell Memorial ride led by Fred's brother Carl. The ride was to end back near the coast at Dennington village hall for a buffet and a stunning display of Fred's sporting successes.
An hour later in New Road the usual enormous field for the Framlingham Flyers 10k set off.

A very decent turnout on a lovely day at the Dennington village hall boot sale. Very taken with this fella who had set up on his own in the car park (everyone else was round the back on the grass) because that's how he and Dave used to do it.

10:17am The Framlingham poll officer is already having to poke ballots in with a ruler, it does matter just bloody VOTE!
06:50pm Earlier we spoke to prospective parish councillor Richard Pierce-Saunderson outside the Stradbroke poll. He was about to vote as an emergency proxy on some one else's behalf, we found it exciting. There was a steady stream in out of the Stradbroke poll, very quiet in Wilby, quiet in Brundish and steady in Dennington.
08:21pm Queue back to the door in Framlingham polling station. You have to be in the queue by 10pm to get a ballot paper ... not long to go.
10:19pm Too late now, Riverside Framlingham.

We got our first digital SLR camera in 2006, it was a Canon 300D (sold in the US as EOS Rebel) and second hand off eBay of course. It had a screen on the back slightly bigger than a postage stamp and the following year we upgraded to a 350D. Old digital cameras don't die as quickly as you might think, yesterday there were 7,690 uploads from 300Ds to Flickr.

The Spar shop in Stradbroke re-opened today after closing in September last year. It was open at lunch time, had a good handful of well turned out staff and inside has been majorly made over but we can't show you because a man in a suit decided it was Spar policy not to allow photography. We can't show you the post office in the library either because that's closed all day Wednesday ... but the water splash near Dennington was fun.

Last night for the Dennington WI charity fashion show we had to park in what was the post office as the village hall car park was jammed. Inside impressive that Dennington has dinner jackets and bow ties to dress a half dozen stewards, indeed one steward told us that as a young man he was always in a DJ at weekends. The models were dressed from the Framlingham hospice shop so we expected shabby chic but there were £500 shoes and what appeared to be a brand new Christian Dior handbag.

The Dennington tennis court was looking pretty sad when we visited four years ago and now it looks like qualifying for free counselling. To cheer it up the sports club are having an auction tomorrow in the village hall with viewing tonight. Opportunities include a brand new pedal tractor, a male? Venus de Milo, old bowls that get antique dealers on tv excited and a big yellow thing.

It was the Central Suffolk rabbit and cavy box show at Dennington yesterday afternoon. A box show is where the competitors really only leave their box for the judging but still an enjoyable affair with the animals being surprisingly patient. The open class for family pets included an attractively marked tortoise which we were told enjoyed a swim and a giant snail but the snake had been asked not to attend. The club is back in the village hall in April with a pen show and an expected over the hundred entrants.

Farctum/Grethic didn't go as far as lipstick and earrings but she did give quite a makeover to her lane's ditch in the rarely visited Dennington-Saxtead Triangle (it's like the Ambridge-Penny Hassett Triangle, the phones only occasionally work as the residents keep making bangles out of the wires). Not surprisingly her net on a stick turned up a lot of discard but four (yes 4) brandy bottles?
