Terra Lightfoot and band - pic Dustin Rabin♫ Judging by YouTube Canadian Terra Lightfoot doesn't mess about and a bit of rocker, what's more last night Ella spoke highly of her, we're guessing Ella saw Terra at this summer's Maverick ... we failed there.  You can see Terra and band (just one of two UK dates) plus blueser Tom Attah Friday in Easton at Maverick's Thanksgiving Party.

♫ When Peppery Productions presented the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain (ten years ago!) at Easton Farm Park we weren't keen.  We'd heard them on the radio and thought them just one joke but we were persuaded to go and how wrong we were; witty, creative and Hester singing Teenage Dirtbag was a genuinely moving experience.  So very sorry to learn that founder member Kitty Lux passed away in June.

The Market Hill FramlinghamHarriers on the Market Hill Framlingham before what's now Country Vision got the mock Tudor half timbering.  Not unreasonable to assume it's the Easton Harriers.  We've fiddled with the image and we can see HARRIERS in the annotation but don't think it's EASTON ... it might be HAMILTON and once upon a time Lord and Lady Hamilton pretty much owned Easton ...

Love your co-opArriving back near the coast yesterday we did our shopping in the Wickham Market co-op ... it was so calm and unhurried compared with the Hackney Tescos near Chelmsford ... ahhhh (we thought) nice to be back ... on the back road to Easton we dodged two hatchbacked mums with hectic lifestyles and a flying post van ... Suffolk eh? (we thought).

♫When we visited a Rabble Chorus rehearsal in Easton three years ago we were impressed by Kirsty Logan's arrangements but there wasn't that many of them.  Now there's enough for a flash mob in the Ipswich John Lewis with Barbara Ann Spencer taking lead.  PS: This song and choir on the cd of last year's Maverick Festival.♫

Dial M for MurgatroydIt's maybe a decade since we saw an Eastern Angles Christmas show in Ipswich but remember fondly Ferry Across The Waveney and a splendidly pneumatic guest appearance by Lara Croft in another Christmas show.  Peppery Prods who put on the excellent shows at Easton Farm Park have dickered a two for one offer for the three preview shows of Dial M for Murgatroyd, just say Peppery when ordering tickets.

Easton pre-school teddy jumpEaston pre-school may be a bit confused about when they have an anniversary due but Friday they knew how to run a teddy jump raffle without that dour chanting Yellow one four six that too often mars a social occasion.  Despite threatening dashes of rain the teddies jumped triumphantly.  Possibly the liveliest pre-school near the coast it has a few vacancies, a new lunch club and now takes children from two years old.

Suffolk Punch colt Easton WilliamWe went to Easton farm park Monday to see the Suffolk Exhibitions show and particularly liked the lino cuts of Helen Maxfield and (even though they are a bit scary) the felt vessels of Tracy Hetherington ... but got seriously distracted by the farm animals.  It's the time of year when everything's having young with Suffolk Punch colt Easton William the unquestionable star.

More yoga, yes yogaWith a council grant Easton village hall has new joists, new floor, raised ceiling and a paint job that altogether makes it a much more pleasant space ... plus a mountain of new stuff for the pre-school.  At today's pre-school open day the almost overwhelming amount going on included manicures, no really, manicures, yoga with the children surprisingly engaged and guinea pig petting.  When we left three new families had joined but still space for children from 18 months upwards.
