Hoxne Christmas lightsWhen we visited Hoxne three Christmases back to see Vix and the Kicks (she does make the effort) we were impressed by the public festive lights and if anything they're better this year and a couple of villages away the hanging baskets at St Mary's Wilby are still being tended and have gained seasonal decorations.

Sumo break dancer in Laxfield♫ At the back end of yesterday's admirably free entrance Laxfield Day Out we managed to separately and without noticing drop our press pass and ear plugs (they let you stand closer to the pa) but some nice ladies pointed them out ... Suffolk eh?  As you would expect Vix and the Kicks made the effort with three sets including some Joe Tex and Chic's Le Freak.

The Little Mutterings phone boxAt last Thursday's Stackton Tressel town council meeting Major Gervaise DeRoute strongly advocated that the the militants who occupied the Little Mutterings' phone box should be declared a terrorist organisation.  Chairman Dame Celia Baumhugger declined the suggestion commenting as this is Suffolk there was nothing organised about the protest and what's more she was surprised anybody could get in the telephone box.

Cratfield open weekend - pic by Geoff MooreWeekend before last perhaps instead of having a summer fete Cratfield had an open weekend which impressively included The Poacher being open all day.  What a successful idea, the event raised over £4,000 to support the church and village hall.  Thanks to Candy Blackham and Geoff Moore for the info.

In Aldeburgh yesterday we got see the Broadside Boys for the first time andSuffolk Punch mare with her foal Easton William though they weren't dressed Suffolk their anthem Suffolk Punch was suitably and rousingly patriotic.  They were part of the Aldeburgh Festival's Musicircus which is maybe a 100 bands of absolutely all flavours playing close by each other along the front and it is absolutely all flavours; school choirs, string quartets, ukes, a Hendrix wannabe, a folk quartet with the melody taken by children's tinkle bells, three vibraphones and a drummer playing latin-american ... absolutely everything and it was wonderful.

That's all we have until ThursdayIn this part of Suffolk you're more likely to be run down by a mobility scooter than an inline skater but we do like its been here forever bumptiousness ... and though unfair to say it's still the 1950s near the coast we have heard that sugar rationing didn't end in Stackton Tressel until 1986 ...

Rubbish Thursday ... the day before Good Friday

The Badingham White Horse should be re-opening soon and roadside signs speaking of shares and the Ten Bells in Stonham Aspal indicate a community buy out but the Internet shows it seems to have failed at the beginning of the month.

Anorak Alert 3: Lovejoy (the later series without Eric and Lady Jane showing on Freeview channel Drama) may be set in "East Anglia" but they seem to spend a lot of time in and around pubs with parasols branded Ridley's an Essex brewery and we certainly recognise the Moreton Massey near Harlow masquerading as Suffolk.
