It was a frosty start to Remembrance Day yesterday but the sun shone for the parade in Framlingham  and at the closed door roller derby in Norfolk we couldn't choose between Chick Dastardly and Tarty McFly as our favourite new to us derby name of the day, honourable mention to referee Booster Quadburn.

Unlike the royal wedding in Orford last year the rain last night made Danegeld morris retreat into the Framlingham  Castle Inn but the two fellas erecting the Magners cider garden in the courtyard soldiered on.

Framlingham first responder Steve LovettAll things will pass ...Five years ago yesterday the Framlingham first responders went live and ever since typically get called out ten times a month.  We find it a great comfort that they are likely to be with you before the ambulance or paramedic ... but though their experience is people are very generous with money what is really needed are more responders.

Kathrin Shorr of Sweet Talk Radio♫ We wouldn't expect to hear If I Only Had A Brain or Thin Lizzy's The Boys Are Back In Town at a Maverick concert but last night in the Framlingham  Crown Sweet Talk Radio turned them into gently lyrical slow ballads.  Like we've said before they can all sing in country and Sweet Talk's roadie Alex Berger sang and played someone else's guitar beautifully in a two song spotette.

Andrea HoneywoodFive years ago today Framlingham's last community copper Andrea Honeywood retired and was replaced by a Safer Neighbourhood Team.  Nowadays the Fram SNT (and we bet most people still don't know what that means)All things will pass ... has merged with Saxmundham and Aldeburgh and is commanded by a sergeant in Leiston ... he probably has a satnav.

Open mike at the Castle InnNo strippers, conjurers or performing dogs at the Framlingham  Castle Inn's open mike last night but plenty of guitarists.  We were particularly impressed by newbie Marc Everett who didn't even bring a guitar, he borrowed one.  If you want to try yourself out in front of people then you'll find the Castle audience very generous in spirit.
