Alde Valley Spring Festival 2016Saturday artist and Rendham resident Maggi Hambling will again open the Alde Valley Spring Festival in Great Glemham.  At previous openings Ms Hambling has been highly entertaining (especially the aglet/Michael Gambon story) and given a faintly surrealist edge as she spoke from the raised bucket of a JCB.

Thom Hobson portraitWhat was a lovely sunny day yesterday turned into a sufficiently foggy night to make driving stressful enough that it limited the turn out for young Rendham artists Ania and Kasia Hobson's private view at the Quay Gallery Snape.  They're there until Thursday and we rather liked the portrait of their brother Thom in a very natty suit.

Like we said everything is happening today 4 July, Wilby school summer fayre, Bedfield barn dance, the Rendham fete, the monthly farmers market at the Snape Maltings and Le Tour kicks off with a prologue time trial in Holland.  'Why's it called the Tour of France if it's in Holland?'  'Oh p*ss off!'

Rendham field dance 2009♫The annual Rendham field dance (this year it's this coming Saturday) can be a truly magic event.  No matter how unhip or embarrassing you think country dancing is we guarantee ... indeed we give you our personal guarantee ... that if you attend you will end up smiling, or perhaps even going the whole piggie and laughing, with pleasure.

Helen Crayford and Justin LavenderWe've always found Tony's song Maria from West Side Story a tediously whining ballad but with the confidently easy tenor voice of Justin Lavender Saturday night in Rendham we discovered it's powerfully enjoyable.  Regrettably we then had to leave but the entirely home cooked (apart from the bread) supper provided by the friends of the church looked spectacular.

Hair flying as it shouldThe Rendham field dance tomorrow night is an absolute delight, you could end up dancing through ankle deep mist under moonlight ... you'd pay to see that at the cinema wouldn't you ... and this year it doesn't clash with the Maverick festival.

Aldeburgh Gallery private viewOne of the nice things about the Aldeburgh Gallery is it's next to the other chip shop in Aldeburgh, mind you the chip shop closed surprisingly early last Friday so was of no use to those who had stayed late buying at the packed private view of Rendham brother and sister painters Thom and Ania Hobson ... they're both young and talented ... we hate them.

The Rendham field dance before the dance

♫ Our cunning plan Saturday was to visit the Rendham field dance early so we could then go on to snap Rich Hall at the Maverick festival in Easton.  In the event we arrived at the field dance even before the band and forgot to photograph Rich Hall at Maverick but the vids show the field dance was it's usual triumph and from Grundisburgh Freya Roy playing the intermission was a positive broadening.

The bride looking beautifulGrooms, horse and carriageA proper journalist would have found out who was getting married in Rendham yesterday but does it really matter?  The bride looked beautiful (of course) and the horse and carriage (did you know they go together like love and marriage?) looked gothic.

mobile police station in RendhamDespite chillingly miserable rain there'd already been a customer for PCSO Kevin Mann at the mobile police station in Walpole when we visited last Monday morning, Nat Bocking had visited to tell Kevin about the handy bus project.  The Suffolk Coastal mobile is one of four in the county and has on board Internet, loads of info, can postcode free bicycles and mobile phones and has a computer linked speed indicator display to monitor traffic speed through a village.  We followed Kevin on to Rendham but the rain seemed even more penetrating so we didn't hang about.
