walking Rex.  Rex isn't her dog, she's walking him as a Cinnamon Trust volunteer.  Cinnamon volunteers help those having difficulty caring for their pets by walking, vet visits and short term fostering for hospital stays and respite.  Volunteers are protected by the trust's insurance and new faces are always welcome.

Corn stooks in Brick Lane FramlinghamIn Brick Lane

Framlingham 

there's are at least two fields with traditional corn stooks.  We're told by a farming neighbour the corn has been grown for thatching straw and is being conditioned in the stooks.  They'll be there for around a fortnight and surprisingly a drop of rain will help.

New bus shelter in Station RoadSpeak of a bus shelter and one is sure to appear.  There are three way temporary lights in Station and Victoria Mill Roads

Framlingham

today so a gang can install a replacement bus shelter maybe twenty yards nearer to Parham from the previous position.  We'll see how long this one lasts.
Meanwhile behind what was the Atlas Group and Earl Soham Vets in New Road Fram there are white vans, hiviz and safety helmets.

Tasburgh bus shelterThe bus shelter(s) that used to be in Station Road

have been clouted by something vehicular twice.  First in 2009 (gossip was something large turning out Victoria Mill Road) and though both crashes made the shelter unusable they weren't as comprehensive as this wipe out in Tasburgh on the A140.

Nice small town moment this evening in

Framlingham

's Fen Meadow.  A young woman walking two dogs had dropped an envelope containing money and a tidy person had put it in that bin by the bridge.  Fram DIY lent the dog walker some screwdrivers to work the locky thing on the bin and she got her money back ... nice one Fram DIY.

John Self finished April 2016One of the first things we did when we moved to

Framlingham

was buy a pair of smart (by our standards) shoes in John Self's.  Soon after we bought some trainers from the camera and sports shop that was in The Old Mews.  You can't usefully buy shoes (an item that because of erratic sizing is dodgy to buy mail order) in Fram any more ... but there's a much wider selection of knick knacks, gifts and greeting cards.

Con Club is The Lady in the Van.  The Regal in 1962 (it was down New Road) showed fourteen films most of which we hadn't heard of.  Three digit phone numbers, three prices of admission (10p to 17.5p) and interesting ads; camera and another shoe shop in Well Close Square, a pay library on the Market Hill plus somewhere in Fram The Castle Espresso Lounge.  (Thanks to Jane Bloom.)

Earlier this week we bought an InterSlot Time Warper on Amazon in the hope it Amazon lockers in Framlingham would get us caught up on those difficult days.  For the first time we chose to collect it from the yellow lockers on Potter's Garage forecourt in

Framlingham

.  The afternoon sun made it difficult to see the screen and scanning the emailed barcode wasn't offered (though we now suspect the scanner is below the screen) but onscreen keyboard pin entry swung a door open.  The door is chained surely so the locker can close its own doors ... we left feeling very 21st century.

The firecrest on the RSPB web siteA dog walker in New Road

Framlingham 

yesterday told us he'd seen a firecrest on a nearby footpath.  He was surprised he'd never seen one before and clearly struck by it's colourfulness.  The RSPB web site says it competes with the goldcrest for the UK's smallest bird ... not the wren then?
