Last year's A Fistful of RollersHopefully in 2012 we won't loose another friend before their time, Fram market will remain a venue to rant and drink good coffee, Earl Soham beer will bring its own joy, we'll get skies like this, the Maverick gigs are a continuing success, nearthecoast's great and good get greater and gooderer whilst ntc continues to be maddeningly endearing ... and roller derby having got as far as Yarmouth will finally find its way to Suffolk ... but don't hold your breath.  Happy New Year!
