We regret missing the dry ice rink in Leiston earlier this month, it was terrific fun when six years ago a dry ice rink settled in Framlingham for one night only.

New zebra crossing Station Road FramlinghamHere's the new zebra crossing in Station Road Framlingham that caused the road closure Saturday night.  Hasn't got the flashing orange globes (belisha beacons) on top of the poles (poles clearly tall enough to warn aircraft) and the poles have yet to be finished in black and white.

The water leak in Victoria Mill Road Framlingham has been fixed.  A water main junction by the entrance to Stately Terrace was leaking in to a cracked drain and then emerging further down the hill.  Making good remains to be done.

Surprised how many people don't want their brown wheelie bins though perhaps understandable in Stately Terrace Framlingham where some houses don't have that much outdoor space.

Armistice Day

A poor start today to the Armistice Centenary but approaching 10am the steady rain went away and the sun came out.  The Framlingham Remembrance parade assembled as usual in New Road with encouraging involvement from youth organisations.  On the hill was the biggest crowd we've ever seen for the parade, big enough to rather swamp St Michael's churchyard.  Impressive hand made tributes both inside and outside the church ... a fitting tribute.

The new green wheelie binsThe green wheelie bins (two months late) have arrived in Stately Terrace Framlingham.  The lids don't close properly but the leaflet says we're not to worry about that, there's a hidden tag (presumably RFID?) to identify individual bins and there will be one more collection of the brown bin.  We asked if deliveries will continue into October and the driver's mate opined It's going to take a while.

Land girl at John Bridges book launchYesterday the Framlingham library car park impressively had no parked cars.  It did have a land girl, military vehicles, motorbikes and lots of other stuff to launch John Bridges new book A Suffolk Town in Wartime - Framlingham 1939 to 1945.  We were told there had been a queue all morning for signed copies.

Preparation for The Framlingham Flyers' 10kWe were planning to visit the Burston Strike School rally today but got distracted by the Framlingham Flyers' 10k.  Some 400 entrants, loads of marshals and helpers, selection race for Suffolk County, the smallest and youngest water person we've yet seen and we heard that the course record was broken, probably by this bloke.  It'll have to be Burston next year then ...

Fish on the Market Hill FramlinghamFish was a good friend to this web site and his chums both on and off line, especially in Framlingham.  In 2011 tragically he laid down in front of a train and committed suicide.  The bulletin board software has deleted the tribute to him, we have recovered the tribute which is now permanently at Fish 1972-2011.

Framlingham College Head Paul Taylor in 2009 JOB  Framlingham College are recruiting a new head teacher.  It seems like only a week ago that the then newly appointed head Paul Taylor turned up at a Brandeston British Legion art show not wearing a tie.  We weren't surprised or shocked but found it interesting that he had ... or perhaps hadn't.

Rive Ore highAround Framlingham the River Ore seems surprisingly high for the rain we've had and the Fen Meadow is sodden.  The Framlingham river monitor (where New Road crosses the river at the far end of the College's sports field) sort of supports our supposition that rain when in bed is less noticed.

Sara Allin in 2007 at the Munchbox CafeIf you've been around Framlingham long enough you may remember that what's now the Common Room was once Graham King Watchmakers then very briefly an Indian takeaway before Sara and Pete Allin re-opened it as The Munchbox Cafe.  They made it a welcoming meeting place serving very reasonably priced straight ahead food and it soon gathered a fan club.  Tragically in 2006 Pete had a fatal heart attack in the kitchen.  A year later Sara understandably moved on.  We were much saddened to learn this week that Sara still only in her forties passed away in June from breast cancer ... taken far too soon.

Dining & Fuction SuiteThough the Framlingham Barclays' Framlington might be described as viral our 2007 Fuction pic of the adjacent Crown Hotel was only ever mildly infectious.  The sign was for the opening of the converted stables at the rear of the Crown as Reubens.  Round about this time we saw the teenage Ed Sheeran cycle past the historic hotel but not any Ipswich Town footballers.

Crikey!  Is it really five years since the chip van stopped visiting Framlingham?

Darren and Gosia with the old electricsThe temporary traffic lights in Station Road Framlingham promised for yesterday haven't appeared but there's road digging on the Market Hill.  The elderly dodgy power points for the market are being replaced with galvanised new arrangements.  Fishmonger and market supervisor Darren Smith says they are a big improvement and we'd guess safer.

College Road closure by Mount PleasantThere are temporary traffic lights in Victoria Mill Road Framlingham, so far for no apparent reason.  The two week road closure of College Road by Mount Pleasant for sewer works has not surprisingly caused traffic in Brook Lane but the school crossing lady is still turning out, as she says there are still vehicles that haven't noticed that the road is closed.  Thankfully the temporary lights in Fairfield Road don't arrive until the end of the month.
