Wednesday we visited Walnes Seeds at their new(ish) home on Moat Park Earl Soham. They've donated two Christmas trees as charity raffle prizes plus a large tree for Earl Soham's green and in the enormous warehouse there are already trees with buyers' names on. FREE delivery locally.

Haven't done one of these for a while and this time it's Earl Soham; the Falcon pub which was certainly still open in the 1980s, Brundish Lodge and a 1933 cricket match between the village and the East Anglian Daily Times.

Some house sales in Framlingham, Earl Soham (including what was Thorolds the corner shop), Woodbridge, Saxmundham and Aldeburgh.

Mr and Mrs Hugh Creighton have lived in Lacey Cottage on that nasty corner in Earl Soham for 26 years. Hugh has been and then not been a parish councilor. They have raised three daughters, seen the Falcon, Thorolds the corner shop and the post office (after over a century) close, Tastebuds open become Eat Anglia and then close, and Earl Soham Brewery move from Maurice's chicken shed to the garage and then to Debenham. We're surprised there hasn't been more change in 26 years ... at the end of the month they move to the south coast.

In the late 1980s Earl Soham Brewery created a pub out of a derelict furniture repository in Cambridge, the building had been built to service the trams of a company that went bust before it had even started trading so ESB called the pub The Tram Depot. Our first visit was last weekend for the Love Bout after party and drank a pint of Everards' Tiger in memory of track racing at Saffron Lane, Leicester.

The Earl Soham Brewery is moving to the Debenham Bloomfield Industrial Estate and right by the entrance are the breweries' (Cliff Quay are joining them) offices and what will be a very attractive shop.

The Earl Soham Falcon was certainly open in the early 1990s as I remember having playgroup meetings there when my two big ones were little and I was chairman! Certainly made the evening go by much quicker and discussions more amicable.
All the best, Edith

Not sure when the Earl Soham Falcon (once upon a time a Lacon brewery pub) closed but this 1980s? advertising card gives the landlords as Paul and Lavina Algar (should that be Lavinia?). In 2008 the pub sign decorated the back wall of what is now a private house and the post for the pub sign lives outside the Earl Soham brewery a little up the road.

Malcolm and Lucie Walker ran Tastebuds in Earl Soham at the beginning of the decade and Malcolm would mildly irritate the keys of an electric piano, primarily on Sunday evenings in the Framlingham Station. They were clearly attracted by a caravan lifestyle living for a while in a Winnebago lookalike at Kettleburgh and now on a barge in France. Their blog is called Tillers and Tastebuds.

Earl Soham Victoria des' dinners 72
New lunching chums were Amanda and her husband Ron, Eddie and Elspeth, now dd regulars Tony M and the Gentleman Plumber plus NaTCH and The Brewer who opined his veggie lunch could not have been bettered, indeed all the food was the Vic's usual honest cooking. Conversation included why Agas won't run on gas, are Norwegian and Swedish really that different as languages and Elspeth's uncertainty about what to do with the unwanted Jotul wood stove in her garage. (last visit subsequent lunch previous lunch)

... and perhaps you remember Malcolm Walker? Behind The Brewer in the pic? With his wife Lucie ran Tastebuds in Earl Soham 2001-05? We assume they are still cruising the canals of Europe and celebrating today his 67th birthday.

On Saturday Mr and Mrs Michael Fogg-Elliot opened their home for a coffee morning to raise funds for the Earl Soham village hall. Their house used to be the Falcon pub which, when discussed, was thought to have closed around ten years ago. We knew that post for the pub sign now lives outside Earl Soham Brewery and that the front garden used to be the car park but we were surprised to find there were petrol pumps to one side ... don't know why but we were, surprised.

Earl Soham Lodge is gorgeous! It actually is a moated (farm?)house, that standing water goes all the way round it's not just a medieval fish farm, and we're told some of the cellar is Roman. When we arrived around 11 this morning for Paddy and Scott's Coffee Morning Scott had already served 160 coffees (Paddy was on a sabbatical) and Scott reckoned the event would raise some £500-600 for the village hall. As with all similar events one of the great pleasures is to blether with your neighbours and by the way this nipper was supping it might have been hot chocolate.
