Ian Hislop at the Aldeburgh Documentary Festival2019 is the centenary year of Aldeburgh Cinema (Leiston pre-dates them by five years) and they will be marking it with their first Cinema on the Beach.  We've been told that Aldeburgh folk would dress up for the cinema and be greeted in the foyer by the manager wearing evening dress, a floral buttonhole and smoking a cigar ... these days celebrities don't feel the need for a tie:)

Dr Nearthecoast is in and listening at ntc@nearthecoast.com

Taylor-Wimpey site Fairfield Road FramlinghamThough we are and always will be blow ins we do remember Love Lane off Brook Lane and the footpath across the Fen Meadow Framlingham being surfaced.  Certainly surfacing Love Lane made life easier for pram pushers taking older children to Bobby Hitchams but it did feel like suburbanisation.  Now it's the footpath off Fairfield Road's turn.

Suffolk ConstabularySuffolk does seem to get through chief constables, Steve Jupp will be the fourth in six years ... just saying.

The Suffolk joke is There's a bloke in our village who's been to Norwich ... well he had to.  We rather like Norwich with its market that always reminds us of a souq and it now has its own section on here.

Advent calendar windows Double Street FramlinghamGill Knight reports that the advent windows in Double Street Framlingham raised £640 for the two charities.  Three year old Idris wasn't too sure about the cow and donkey peeking out of the stable at the Castle Street end and wouldn't come near to stroke them.

PC TipsA bit techie but if you have your own web site this might be interesting.   We hadn't visited Google's PageSpeed Insights for quite a while.  nearthecoast.com 100% speed scoreToday we discovered it's had a major makeover, doesn't optimise graphics anymore and it looks like Lighthouse buried in the Chrome browser is more useful.  (Lighthouse didn't like our robots.txt file but 100 speed score.)  Yes, we're confused too.
