Suffolk, or at least Co-ops near the coast, have rediscovered the ice bucket challenge. Yesterday in front of a few socially distanced onlookers a very good handful of Framlingham Co-op staff were cheerfully dunked by their co-workers. If we'd paid more attention we would know which charity benefitted but we do know Wickham Market Co-op have been challenged to do the same thing.

No new confirmed Covid-19 cases in Suffolk yesterday. A new map effectively showing infection as percentage of population and Suffolk doing no better than the rest of East Anglia. The thirty seventh reason to be cheerful ... go on, judge us. ♫

Yesterday unsurprisingly the total of confirmed C-19 cases in Suffolk went over over 200 confirmed cases. If like us you're suffering from sport deprivation here's a fourteenth reason to be cheerful ... they're going for two. ♫

The paid green garden waste wheelies arrived in October 2018. At this difficult time East Suffolk district council are suspending garden waste collections but subscriptions will be extended when the collections restart.
Recall our space exclamations rant? Radio 3 presenter Petroc Trelawney is doing it. The spaces between words show where the words start and end though this doesn't necessarily apply to Suffolk roadside signs FOR SALE Bare Roothedging. A full stop/exclamation shows where a sentence ends and by placing a space before it you're confusing things ... but we wouldn't break social distancing to argue this.

Aldeburgh Cinema has closed for the duration so we won't get to see Emma this afternoon but the Woodbridge Riverside seems to be partially functioning. The Red Rooster festival near Thetford has been postponed to September and Life Arts have postponed April's Woodbridge festival to next year. All Snape Maltings music events cancelled until the end of April (we were lucky), the Phoenix Singers concert in Framlingham next month cancelled as is the Campsea Ashe Spring Fayre this Saturday and still only three virus cases in Suffolk.
