It snowed in Woodbridge this morning and we took shelter in The Tea Hut by the River Deben.  The river makes bits of Woodbridge surprisingly boaty.

It's all the go in and about near the coast, temporarily closing petrol stations to re-Haynings garage Framlingham being updatedmodel them, not an insignificant matter when there are so few to start with.  Woodbridge (has it re-opened yet?), Co-op Stowmarket (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!

Eastern Angles Fenland ScreamersIt must be well over a decade since we saw an Eastern Angles Christmas show and we don't recall the now available free parking at the rear of the Ipswich theatre but it's still a small cast working their socks off.  Saturday it was five actors who had Fenland Screamers tightly polished prompting laughter and applause from the audience.  We got to be part of a rope bridge and had an actor sit on our lap ... unfortunately not one of the ladies.  The show continues this month including a run at the Seckford Theatre Woodbridge.

Waitrose at Shell GaragesThe Shell garage on the Ipswich bound carriageway of the Woodbridge bypass has been flattened.  Rumour has the rebuild will have a Waitrose which doesn't seem impossible.

Just the building at the pleasant Co-op garage on the A1120 by Stowupland has been flattened but the garage is still functioning from what looks like a Portakabin.

Scaffolding outside the Bell and Steelyard WoodbridgeThe passing lorry driver who in April destroyed the metalwork hanging off the Bell and Steelyard Woodbridge has been given seven points and ordered to pay £683.  Hope his insurance covers the at least £10,000 to fix it which judging by the scaffolding outside we're quite prepared to believe.
