The Spar shop in Stradbroke re-opened todayDennington water splash 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.

Dennington WI fashion showLast 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.

Venus de Milo?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.

Boxes at a box showIt 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 theJudging 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.
