It's all the go in and about near the coast, temporarily closing petrol stations to re-model them, not an insignificant matter when there are so few to start with. Woodbridge (has it re-opened yet?), Co-op Stowupland (not closed but building going on), Haynings Framlingham (reportedly will have a 24 hour self service pump) and now the BP garage on the west bound A14 near Newmarket. Fortunately services just off the A14 on the other side of Cambridge are copiously resourced ... three Costa Coffee machines!

Suffolk does seem to get through chief constables, Steve Jupp will be the fourth in six years ... just saying.
The Suffolk joke is There's a bloke in our village who's been to Norwich ... well he had to. We rather like Norwich with its market that always reminds us of a souq and it now has its own section on here.

We could rant about the relentless building around near the coast making rural Suffolk increasingly suburban with little if any improved infrastructure but we'll console ourselves that it's still a pleasant place to live. We have bubbling a slight change to our look and very probably stylish merch. In 2019 no doubt there'll be continued sightings of Ed Sheeran, the East African will report local fury about something or other and there'll be even more building ... wishing you the best for 2019.

Suffolk Police have removed their YouTube lip sync vid (something to do with Tim Passmore?) but the Norfolk cops vid is still there .. coppers dancing is a bit like a politician trying to tell a joke.

Yesterday the hottest place of the year so far was Santon Downham (it's in Suffolk if only just) but remember it will end ...

Bury St Edmunds may not be near the coast but it is in Suffolk, was the county town of West Suffolk and is home to brewer Greene King and roller rink Curvemotion so it now has its own page, and why not.

♫ 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.
