... a bit Suffolk

A soggy start to to the Framlingham Annual Charity and Voluntary Organisations
Christmas Market and Christmas Tree Lighting but it turned out bright, clear, crisp and on the edge of bloody cold for the Christmas Markets ... so definitely a hat day ... and Matt Bayfields's girlies made a cracking job of turning the lights on.

New this year for the Street Fayre fairground rides giving the Market Hill a bustling, fun atmosphere. Permanent queues for Daddy C and next door the hit of the nativity
was Muffin the donkey (surely named after Muffin the Mule) who caused much suppressed hilarity amongst the shepherds by being agricultural during the adoration. First time we've seen the swag stall triple handed, the Ladies of Barclays opted for the same cossies as last year, the Teddy Bear game was attracting patrons of the younger and feminine persuasion, and White Water were trying out for their Christmas Bash by growing to a quartet. Lots of people, particularly children, were having a lovely time.

Rock & flippin' Roll! The 150 tickets sold out weeks before the gig, two tickets went on eBay for charity at four times their face value and then Saturday The Outlaws Christmas Party kicked off in a packed Framlingham White Horse, a raffle and the Herald Angel was there too.

As rather late we walked up to the Market Hill the Pizza Grill was still open and ready to serve. Fram's biggest media sluts
(prove us wrong) were hanging out in The Crown and in due course a measurably bigger conga line than last year kicked
off. Community copper Andrea Honeywood counted all the dancers out and then counted them back in. On our way
home a group of very relaxed and somewhat loud younger people in Victoria Mill Road were having a heated debate about who was going to be a granddad. Have we missed something?
PS Happy New Year!
