Sur5val pile-up in NorwichThe Saturday before last the Sur5val roller derby format came to UEA Norwich.  A little difficult to follow as the scoreboard had software problems and to prevent colour clashes the teams didn't wear their league jerseys but still highly enjoyable derby.  Impressively Suffolk Roller Derby came fourth in their first public bout and hosts the Norfolk Brawds celebrated winning by falling to the floor prompting a mass pile up/bundle.

Updated the Guess Who? winners list with the remaining winners we can identify ... the Gentleman Plumber is top banana.

A couple setting up home in a Framlingham craneFramlingham feels like bird city at the mo'.  We saw three separate and enormous broods of Mallard duckling in The Knoll and a lucky couple have grabbed the luxury penthouse flat at the top of the crane on Mills Meadow ... the footpath down the side of the telephone exchange is finally open again, don't know why they had to close it in the first place.

Last week a flatbed Ford in Wickham Market (not Wimslow Arizona) was stolen with a metal seed drum on the back ... what's a seed drum?

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.
