Passing the Stradbroke Spar just after 2pm today worryingly the lights were off.Radio Stradbroke's Home Service  Richard Pierce told us the shop has restricted hours during this pandemic and closes at 2pm on Sunday.  He pointed out if we listened more carefully to Radio Stradbroke broadcasting daily 10:00am-02:00pm we would have known this:)

What was the wedding dress shop Lavender and Jude in Stradbroke is now the Poppies & Daisies tea rooms.  What was Co-op chemist by the Co-op supermarket car park in Long Stratton is now a Well Pharmacy ... seems significant but we're not sure of what.

Suffolk Cricket Women and GirlsIn 1743 (that's 33 years before the American Declaration of Independence) the Gentlemen of High Suffolk played a cricket match in Stradbroke.  Yesterday on the 275th anniversary Stradbroke CC played two limited over T20s against Suffolk Cricket Women and Girls.  A historic and democratic result of one game each.

Romeo and Juliet at the Wingfield BarnsWe first saw the Keeper's Daughter's Romeo or Juliet crikey seven years ago at Hartismere School Eye.  Like Dr Who it keeps regenerating and yesterday's afternoon show at the Wingfield Barns had a confident young cast who often played with the expectation of what a play should be, we particularly liked the audience joining in with the dancing.  No doubt RorJ will regenerate somewhere near you soonish ... on our way home the Stradbroke Spar had shelves that need to be filled.

mo 9 Jul

Sam and the Womp at Stradbroke♫ A very large tv screen kept the fifth Stradisphere in Stradbroke informed about the football, and Saturday night we got to see surprisingly mature well known trouble makers from Harleston Red Mecca.  In the tent Das Fenster and the Alibis were a very theatrical (we like that) rockabilly type trio with stand up bass followed by Sam and the Womp who had a million selling number one in 2012 (no, we hadn't heard of them either).  The Balkan influenced trumpet (yes, we know) of Sam etc prompted dancing and intriguingly entertained us.
