near the coast

th 11 May

Aldeburgh High Street Dolpin Inn Thorpeness Framlingham Market Green Debenham

Looking at old postcards of near the coast you might think the only thing that's changed is the cars.

th 4 May

Suffolk sophisticates have both Co-op cardsDisappointingly not even near the coast will a Co-op card be acceptable ID for today's local elections.

we 19 Apr

Suffolk ConstabularyOvernight Sunday to Monday a vehicle parked in Peasenhall Road Walpole was entered and Stihl power tools including a strimmer, leaf blower and chainsaw stolen.  It's not known how entry was gained.  Any info contact Suffolk police quoting crime reference 37/22521/23, you can call 101.

fr 14 Apr
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.

Women's T

Women's Tour PostponedThe Women's Tour has frequently and rewardingly visited near the coast but regrettably it's postponed this year, it would seem mostly because of money.

Saturday after next there's a boot sale in Dallinghoo with plants and cakes, prior pitch booking essential.

sa 1 Apr

Suffolk ConstabularyA shed at St Marys Church Cratfield had the lock forced last week and a lawn mower stolen.  Contact police quoting 37/17827/23, you can call 101.

th 16 Mar

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.

sa 11 Mar

Wedding venue Woodhall Manor (it's sort of between Melton and Bawdsey) has an open day tomorrow and we're impressed it has a page for Asian weddings.

th 9 Mar

The Ukranian national flagThe Ukrainian family of three hosted near the coast have had at least one suitable accommodation offer but have decided to return home to Ukraine.

Peter Brockett has pointed out another upcoming A12 road works between Bredfield and Pettistree, pretty much around here we think.

we 8 Mar
road closures

Road works eh?The A12 between Ipswich and the M25 has three sets of road works with at least two likely to run into next year and signs on the A12 between Martlesham and the A14 announce road works due this month ... not easy to find details online.

Donkey near death experience in Kelsale Sunday.

Table top sale in CloptonNear the coast you're supposed to know by osmosis when the Framlingham Gala happens and when the Stratford St Andrew Riverside Centre is open but this table top sale Saturday week has relented to let you know it's in Clopton today.

we  8 Feb

A lot of merging has made the page nearthec in the teens when there were Designated Public Place Orders, petrol stations closed for makeovers and the Forward Green Shepherd and Dog was TO LET ... so no change there then.

th 2 Feb

Suffolk ConstabularyOvernight Tuesday a shed in Main Road Kelsale was broken into and a blue Suzuki GSXR 1000 motorbike reg YN04 KMF stolen.  Any info contact Suffolk police quoting crime reference 37/6336/23, you can call 101

New constituency Waveney ValleyWe've only just noticed the new monster parliamentary constituency Waveney Valley and that it has grabbed land from all its neighbours including near the coast MPs and doctors Dan Poulter and Thérèse Coffey ... interesting eh?

sa 10 Dec
