... a bit Suffolk
|sa 19 Jul|
Our word what a busy day! Coffee morning at what was The Falcon in Earl Soham (pics next week), 12 hours of non-stop sociability in Brundish (pics next week), second night of Hachfest, the John Western Memorial Bike Ride but most dramatic must be the Framlingham Horse Show with at least two simultaneous medical incidents of which one needed the air ambulance but otherwise the usual charming day of equine pursuits.

Well that certainly made a bank holiday Sunday more interesting for visitors to Framlingham. Eleven carts of variously sophisticated designs variously trundled and whizzed down the Market Hill with a mixed bunch of drivers including the quite young.
Racing noticeably got faster, and closer, as the day progressed which may have been due to more committed bobsleigh type starts, certainly some carts were having problems stopping at the other end; at least one mechanical failure and there's always the tedious business of having to pull the cart back to the top. Great stuff and let's hope it happens again next year.
