Surprised we hadn't heard about the nasty sounding road accident in Hacheston last Thursday, a Cateye Strada wireless cycle computer found in Woodbridge and dodgy £20 notes have been popping up all over nearthecoast including Aldeburgh, Saxmundham, Snape and Walberswick.

Ice cream at Hachfest Looks like if there is a Hachfest this year it'll only be a token one, sad because Hachfest is live music and for some perhaps the nearest they'll get to the festival experience.

The air ambulance attending at Framlingham CastleAlan Mutimer has just told us he expects Hachfest to raise about the same as last year.  Last year Hachfest and Hacheston Bygones together donated £7,700 to charity.  Appropriately one of this year's benefiting charities is the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Stylish owners

Old style Wolsely police carLot's of interesting new stuff at the Hacheston Bygones today including some stylish owners, hotrods, mopeds, stationary engines, model traction engines and a Cat Protection League stall ... and yes there is another video on the way; Alan Mutimer was an absolute star, particularly when being silently heckled from behind the cameraman's back.

This Sunday it's the eighth annual Hacheston Bygones in, not surprisingly, Hacheston.  Classic and vintage cars, farm machinery, bikes, commercials ...  Not expensive to get in (profits to charity, usually the East Anglian Air Ambulance) and if you can find Hacheston you'll find the Bygones.

The Lion's Den may have closed (yes they're digging up Castle Street again) but unlike Hacheston Framlingham isn't losing a shop as the former LD will almost certainly become an ice cream parlour.  Kate was extremely pleased at this prospect but not impressed by this summer's Maverick Festival as she doesn't like that sort of music.  Give it a try is our advice.

Hacheston doesn't have a shop anymore

Cuckoo TeapotThe Eastern Angles take Cuckoo Teapot out on tour next week starting Wednesday and Thursday in Saxmundham.  Over the next three months venues will include Eye, Brandeston, Bredfield, Westleton, Hacheston, Woodbridge and Orford .  Take them in before the blue meanie Arts Council finish them off.

Romaine Humphreys in her soon to be closed shop

To LetThe TO LET sign says it all.  Romaine Humphreys has been running the Hacheston shop for three years but the Post Office will close Wednesday and the shop Friday.  That convenient lay by just outside means Romaine gets a lot of passing trade but it isn't enough and she was thinking about moving on even before Royal Mail announced the post office closure.  She doesn't know what she will do but will get a redundancy payment.  So if you fancy running a village shop Clarke & Simpson have it on at £4,500 per year ...

Man in the Hat at Hachfest before it was HachfestThe dates Friday 18th-Sunday 20th July have been set for Hacheston's own personal Armageddon the three day music festival Hachfest.
