Stackton Tressel town council's Suffolkness committee has issued new guidelines. To be authentic Suffolk you should have a Co-op loyalty card, drink beer (meaning mild) not lager, know what squit is, know who the manager of ITFC is, know where Benhall and Little Mutterings are and not use 'do' and 'does' the right way round like those la di da townies from that there London does ... owning a tractor does help ...

Rather like Benhall when you say Houghton Regis most nearthecoasters ask Where's that?, but the satnav found it alright (unlike last time) for Co-Eduskation on Sunday. A mixed bout in both gender and league but without the spectacular height differences of Grantham.

A pleasant sprinkling of bikers at the Benhall Music Day, the gravel voiced steward made us particularly welcome in the club house (which has two bars and a chess club) and Framlingham's own Outlaws were going down well, helped by youthful air guitar in the crowd.
