... a bit Suffolk

It's all the go in about near the coast temporarily closing petrol stations to re-model them, not an insignificant matter when there are so few to start with. Woodbridge (has it re-opened yet?), Co-op Stowmarket (not closed but building going on), Haynings Framlingham (reportedly will have a 24 hour self service pump) and now the BP garage on the west bound A14 near Newmarket. Fortunately services just off the A14 on the other side of Cambridge is copiously resourced ... three Costa Coffee machines!
Advert slots above and in the twice(ish) monthly digest available NOW. So to tell near the coast about yourself with £11.95 but BOGOF, that's two months for the price of one ... first come first served.

We found French director Céline Sciamma's film Tomboy highly involving and rewarding not least because it made the Parisian suburbs look idyllic. So very gratifying to find a sealed copy of her later film Girlhood in the Framlingham EACH chazza. Here the banlieue is relentlessly gritty and though Vic essentially remains trapped in her situation the opening sequence is women's american football from team Les Molosses.

Bury St Edmunds may not be near the coast but it is in Suffolk, was the county town of West Suffolk and is home to brewer Greene King and roller rink Curvemotion so it now has its own page, and why not?

2019 is the centenary year of Aldeburgh Cinema (Leiston pre-dates them by five years) and they will be marking it with their first Cinema on the Beach. We've been told that Aldeburgh folk would dress up for the cinema and be greeted in the foyer by the manager wearing evening dress, a floral buttonhole and smoking a cigar ... these days celebrities don't feel the need for a tie:)

Life Skills 23: If you enjoy hearing Desert Island Discs Sunday morningd you might like its slightly posher cousin Private Passions which follows on Radio 3. The chosen music often has a wider range and presenter Michael Berkeley's musical knowledge and resonant voice add a further dimension ... just saying.

Though we are and always will be blow ins we do remember Love Lane off Brook Lane and the footpath across the Fen Meadow Framlingham being surfaced. Certainly surfacing Love Lane made life easier for pram pushers taking older children to Bobby Hitchams but it did feel like suburbanisation. Now it's the footpath off Fairfield Road's turn.
