Sexual Assault Referral CentreThe Sexual Assault Referral Centre is on the outskirts of Ipswich and provides a single location to support and investigate particularly child, and young and vulnerable adult victims.  A lump of money from central government has paid £18,000 for a video link so victims can give evidence from the centre and £12,000 on a 3D distraction system.  The distraction system is a large screen over the medical examination couch that shows calming and moving 3D images, a user can blow in to a pipe to apparently make bubbles come out of the screen and if a finger clip is worn software helps the wearer slow their heart rate.  It all makes sense though no doubt as with all computers there'll be a certain amount of Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Siren Hard CorrOur first problem Saturday night was thinking the Ipswich Spread Eagle is the Falcon ... which hasn't been the Falcon for some time apparently.  In the wilderness of an Ipswich Sunday night finding someone to solve our confusion we discovered the Giles family statue has moved to the other side of the road and the Cromwell SquareThe Humdingers car park has gained a statue of Prince Obolensky playing rugby, bare chested for some reason.  In the new to us and very pleasant Spread Eagle we saw great hair and red Gretsch guitars swimming in echo being played in rockabilly bands The Hepmasters and The Humdingers who sandwiched burlesquer Siren Hard Corr trouping on despite an erratic sound system.  All this raised £320 which will more than cover the insurance so Ipswich Roller Derby can start training hopefully later this month.♫

♫ When we visited a Rabble Chorus rehearsal in Easton three years ago we were impressed by Kirsty Logan's arrangements but there wasn't that many of them.  Now there's enough for a flash mob in the Ipswich John Lewis with Barbara Ann Spencer taking lead.  PS: This song and choir on the cd of last year's Maverick Festival.♫
