Audience member greeted on arrivalAt the Halesworth Cut last night a sizeable audience sampled the real food in the foyer (we gave the olives and nuts some serious attention) and then watched the 15 minute film Diet, Media and Me made locally and including street interviews in Lowestoft.  Afterwards there was an open discussion (the average woman in the UK is size 14), more pixe.

LibDem Daisy CooperThe Lib Dems have chosen local girl (brought up in Walberswick, educated in Framlingham, Halesworth and Southwold) Daisy Cooper for the futile task of contesting John Gummer's seat ... maybe if she promised to re-legalise hunting?

The finale of Five and the Mystery of Sherwood Forest

In Sibton on the way to the matinee of Five and the Mystery of Sherwood Forest a peacock (no, not a pheasant a peacock) tried to commit vehicular suicide.  In Halesworth an original (in both senses and including the music) Five was highly entertaining and the audience totally involved with much booing and hissing of the baddies by both kids and groanies ... one youthful voice advising those on stage to Look behind the middle tree!  We were particularly impressed with the youthful Woofy who stayed in character through out the show, can't wait for the expected Mouth to Mouth garden tour in the summer.

Afterwards we discovered that the fruit and veg in the Halesworth coop was possibly even more rubbish than the Framlingham coop and then drove home through falling snow.

Some of the over 600 weaponsDuring March and April the weapons amnesty in Beccles, Bungay and Halesworth retrieved over 600 items, we find the ammo the scary bit ... well actually some of the knives are pretty scary too.

The circumstances of last night's fatal road accident on the Southwold road has sounded regrettable echoes of the recent fatal collision Halesworth way.

There were eight arrests this weekend at the Halesworth Gig in the Park which is a bit surprising because when we passed Saturday afternoon the woman in the red safety jacket would have certainly frightened us off!

Jolly good sorts

Frau WotsänamenWhat a wheeze!  Get your people to warm up the Lagonda and then motor over to The Cut, Halesworth.  Five and the Aladdin Stone is a thundering yarn full of good eggs who we've seen somewhere else.  Mind you Frau Wotsänamen is a bit of an odd cove, in fact she's an absolute blister ... but there is lashings of ginger beer during the interval!  Oh yes, it's on until the fifth of Jan.

The suitcases to train doors transformation was applauded

With the current weather the new Teen Shelter in Halesworth's town park Crowded in the Teen Shelter was getting heavy use even before Rose Baldry for the local Crime Prevention Panel handed it over to the Town Council.  Jointly funded by Awards for All and Suffolk Police the shelter looks a little like an open ended Nissen hut, is hopefully vandal proof, didn't come pre-graffitied (that was arranged locally) and is very handy for both the skate park and a spot of fishing in the River Blyth.
