Annoyingly the diversion for the closed Westerfield level crossing is NOT signed but we still made it to Ipswich Cardinals v Maidstone Pumas yesterday.  Surprisingly there were no refs and general manager Ralph said other games were also ... more here

2019 Framlingham Gala princessesRemember Hassan who opened the Pizza Grill in Bridge Street Framlingham?  These days he is the California Grill in Ipswich but today was on the Castle Meadow for the Gala Fest with his baby son Hassan Jnr.  The paella looked wonderful and judging by the queue probably was.  Lots of smiles and as always the Gala Princesses looked and were princessly.

Eastern Angles Fenland ScreamersIt must be well over a decade since we saw an Eastern Angles Christmas show and we don't recall the now available free parking at the rear of the Ipswich theatre but it's still a small cast working their socks off.  Saturday it was five actors who had Fenland Screamers tightly polished prompting laughter and applause from the audience.  We got to be part of a rope bridge and had an actor sit on our lap ... unfortunately not one of the ladies.  The show continues this month including a run at the Seckford Theatre Woodbridge.

The pink bubble stationDespite miserable weather yesterday a very decent turn out for St Elizabeth Hospice's Bubble Rush in Ipswich.  For the first hour or so the weather flirted with raining but then got going along with a chilling wind but rushers kept rushing, the arch on the blue bubble station reenacted the flamme rouge collapse in the 2016 Tour de France and the stewards at the finish kept dancing and giving cheerful encouragement.

St Elizabeth Hospice Bubble Rush 2017Last year the St Elizabeth Hospice Bubble Rush in Christchurch Park Ipswich was an absolute blast.  No doubt this year's rush on Sunday will be equally brilliant, registration from 11am.

Ipwich Cardinals 10-21 London Blitz BWe weren't optimistic about yesterday's Ipswich Cardinals v London Blitz B because the Cards had lost 55-00 to the Blitz earlier this year.  In the event on a roastingly hot day (thankfully with a breeze) the Cards led 10-00 for most of the game.  Finally the Blitz offence broke out (they'd been threatening to do it all game) to score two ... more here
