Again a fired up No Spring Chicken got everyone dancing and gave Opportunity Knocks to chef Gary and his dad (who looked nothing like The Proclaimers) and housekeeper Hester (Santa baby). After complimentary Bucks Fizz (May I say your hair is looking particularly lovely this evening) and the obligatory Auld Langs Syne (with some kissing) recently resigned barman Will (he's off to be a ski instructor) led a very good natured and longer than last year conga line round The Market Hill. Ellie Adele was much admired by everyone including Community Police Officer Andrea Honeywood and yet again a thundering good time was universally enjoyed.

For the 2006 Street Fayre it was a free choice in fancy dress at The Crown. The pic of Cilla as a clown was so successful that The Community News printed it, Mandy liked her saloon girl costume so much she didn't want to send it back, the cowboy saloon theme continued behind the bar and as in 2004 we had another charming Tinkerbell.

Ellie Adele Clifford is now some five weeks old but here's a pic of her at just a few days hanging out at the bungee jump.

Top member of staff Tracy Clifford gave birth to a 7lb 5oz little girl this morning and we're all absolutely delighted. Congratulations Tracy!
Excitement builds for Friday's bungee jump with an article in yesterday's East African, our Scottish chef jumping in the kilt (possibly in Black Watch mode), four corporate entertainment tables booked (though there are still tables left) and BBC TV's Look East expected to do a live broadcast from the jump.

Golly gosh! And golly gosh again! The actor Bernard Hill will be jumping Friday week outside the hotel with his eleven year old son Gabriel.

Buying a hot chocolate or coffee gives you the right to sit in the lounge and drink it and then, like this lad has worked out, you can get free wireless Internet to do your homework!

For the second year running we're the box office for the three week Arts Framlingham. New events this year are Reader, I married him and the Jazz Picnic.

The new person in reception and working very closely with Tracy Clifford is Kelly Doel. If Kelly can put up with Roy (and it's surprising how many people can) then she will be helping to launch the new restaurant in the stables conversion at the back of The Crown later this year.

Malgorzata (who inevitably we know as Maggie) was 27 today and rather touchingly she said this was the first time she'd ever been given flowers.

A wireless internet repeater was installed Monday in the housekeeper's room and free wireless Internet is now available in the majority of the bedrooms as well as the bar, lounge, etc.

Happy New Year and free! (but don't tell Roy) wireless Internet is available in the bar, lounge and dining room. Just turn up with your wireless enabled laptop and connect to The Fram Crown channel.
Over the next couple of weeks the service will be extended to all the bedrooms.
Room Three is much liked because the "lobby" is big enough to use as a sitting room and even has its own television. When you enter Room Three facing you are two club chairs where you can sit to watch the tv to your right. Also on your right is the door to an immense walk in wardrobe and the steps leading to the bathroom. The "lobby" can take two cots or a cot and zed-bed. To your left is the bedroom with a desk and a comfortable double bed.
