Six good souls, including a county councillor and a Benhall lady, turned out in the snow yesterday to the Saxmundham Resource Centre Saxmundham resouce centre on a very gray day(it's down Seamen Ave by the fire station) for the Sax and Fram SNT meeting.  All very informal, sofas and coffee rather than platforms and standing orders.  Sgt Daye Goddard reported there'd been no drink related disorder over Christmas in Framlingham or Saxmundham and road safety education is ongoing in the area's primary schools; but the meeting seemed uncertain about anti-social behaviour at Toby's Walks, a picnic area on the A12 near Blythburgh.  Next SNT meeting in Fram 2pm Wed 10th Feb at Avocet House, Station Rd.
