We visited Katie's Garden Newbourne for the first time last week. A staff member asked Are you trying to leave without paying? We were third in the socially distanced queue for the cashier and exit and empty handed because we'd put our three tumbler tomatoes down whilst waiting.

If not a crime wave around near the coast at least a ripple. Last night both Darsham and Framlingham petrol stations were burgled, Friday a quad bike was stolen in the Yoxford area and about the same time two expensive looking bicycles were stolen from a Woodbridge shed.

Suffolk, or at least Co-ops near the coast, have rediscovered the ice bucket challenge. Yesterday in front of a few socially distanced onlookers a very good handful of Framlingham Co-op staff were cheerfully dunked by their co-workers. If we'd paid more attention we would know which charity benefitted but we do know Wickham Market Co-op have been challenged to do the same thing.

Designated Public Place Orders (DPPOs) were enacted in a bunch of near the coast towns over ten years ago. They aren't simple drinking bans, it's not illegal to have wine with a picnic as long as a copper doesn't ask you stop ... read the question. DPPOs have been replaced by Public Space Protection Orders and last month East Suffolk Council resolved (didn't they vote?) to remove the DPPOs (number seven in the minutes). Impressively they also thought to remove the signs that imply Framlingham Fen Meadow is the haunt of drunken muggers rather than sober(ish) dog walkers.
