Vix of Vix and the KicksVix is a very hard working lady but the Kicks keep up with her and together at the Pre-Crimbo Bash last night in Hoxne (a Suffolk village that still has a pub and a shop) they were achieving that hardest of tasks getting people to dance.  We left before the Merry bloody Christmas!midnight finish because we didn't want the village's attractive Christmas lights to go off before we could snap them.

Here's a scary one, a map of road fatalities and injuries 2000-2010.  Zoom in to where you live near the coast and like us be shocked at what mayhem there has been within just a few miles of your house.

near the coast has very pleasant countryside, often good beer and a sense of community particularly in the smaller places, a little bit too much quiet sometimes and it does occasionally feel like this ...

Are you finding near the coast that like Deano warm weather and fortnightly bin men results in maggots?

the Suffolk Show on TwitterParking at this year's Suffolk Show plus a family ticket on the gate is £48.  Just three quid more and it'll be cheaper to supply alcohol to the under aged (£50 fine) but not to wander into a bus lane in a large town near Chelmsford (£130 fine).

Shaw's Ballot PencilWell done near the coast!  So many of you turned out to vote that counting the parish/town polls Suffolk Coastal hit the pause button Friday night and will start up again Monday and Suffolk county chief exec Andrea Hill has gone on handbag leave.

Princess Margaret by Cecil BeatonDepressingly nearly three quarters of the parish and town councils in Suffolk Coastal will not have a contested election this 5 May.  Encouragingly 30 will have contested elections a significant increase on 2007 so maybe it's time for regime change where you live ... and we agree, there's probably a parish out there that hasn't had an election since Princess Margaret was a goer.

FREE is always popular and yesterday we reckon it attracted some 5,000 to Trinity Park for the National Police Dog Trials and impressively the Suffolk Constabulary paid for it all with sponsorship and pitch fees.  Parental shoulders were needed to see much but plenty of other stuff to do, an enormous queue for ice cream, the Surrey police pups were overwhelmed with attention and a Suffolk dog was expected to finish in the top five.

Last year's A Fistful of RollersWe predict that at in 2011 near the coast's great and good will continue to kindly agree, munch scrummy cake, vote the minutes a true and accurate record and relentlessly pursue niceness ... but also the Maverick festival will delight, Why The Long Face? amuse, The Outlaws will do the odd gig near the coast, and who knows?  Maybe roller derby will find its way to Suffolk ... but don't hold your breath.  Happy New Year!
