The now closed Framlingham BarclaysAfter 126 years the Framlingham Barclays bank closed the Friday before last.  The cash dispenser and signs have gone, they'll need a carpenter to close the lobby doors which have no keyhole on the outside.  30 years ago Felixstowe was the nearest LINK cash dispenser to near the coast and Aldeburgh complained it had no ATM for visitors wanting to spend money ... what goes round comes round.

photo ID

Thursday 4 May is the local elections and you will need photo ID ... surprisingly theHaven't got one of these? Tories didn't also make it obligatory to be wearing a Barbour or green wellies.  The back of your polling card (now an A4 paper) lists acceptable IDs apart from the obvious passport and driving license.  If you have none of these (and we know people who don't) you can apply on line for a Voter Authority Certificate but you have to do it by Tuesday week the 25th.

We all know that governments both local and otherwise just love anything new and vibrating but not so good about keeping something desirable going.  A bit surprising then that the Katch service could return in April despite being a mini-coach functioning as a taxi with a very limited number of possible destinations.
