Friday night Framlingham Ladiesbloody Christmas ... eh? Choir present a Christmas Concert in St Clare's Church.  At a Ladies' concert last year the accompanying electronic keyboard briefly set off on its own as a latin-american rhythm section ... such fun:)

The Little Mermaid on skatesThis morning in the Tommy Mills sports hall Framlingham in front of a very supportive and appreciative audience The Little Mermaid whizzed about on off ice skates.  One of the many very young cast members had to be taken to the toilet during the show but like we said before nobody fell over.  Such an opportunity for the young to learn self confidence ... hope there'll be another show soon.

Queue for burgers at late night shoppingWe arrived too late last night on the Market Hill Framlingham for a nativity and local MP Dan Poulter turning on the light but did see the substantial queue for Hall Farm's burgers.  Down the hill at the town council office we declined white wine (can't hold a camera and glass at the same time) but ate a chocolate and was impressed by Christmas card designs by Tommy MiIls pupils.  Very much further down the hill Station Road was closed.

The water leak in Victoria Mill Road Framlingham has been fixed.  A water main junction by the entrance to Stately Terrace was leaking in to a cracked drain and then emerging further down the hill.  Making good remains to be done.

EDF Energy at the Suffolk Skills Show - pic contributedIn case you haven't had one of these through your letter box EDF are taking a show about the proposed Sizewell C on the road at the start of January.  No show in Framlingham, nearest Hacheston Thursday 10 Jan but perhaps the most convenient for the working person Saturday 19th at the Riverside Centre Stratford St Mary.

St Cecilia's Day patron saint of music

Last Sunday we were surprised that that sports hall men's changing room at Tommy Mills had one toilet, two hand wash basins but no showers.  The Brewer's Hertfordshire comprehensive half a century ago had showers ...

Surprised how many people don't want their brown wheelie bins though perhaps understandable in Stately Terrace Framlingham where some houses don't have that much outdoor space.

Rehearsal of The Little Mermaid on off ice skatesThe skaters at the rehearsal of The Little Mermaid in the Tommy Mills Framlingham's sports hall today were wearing off ice skates, they look like inline skates but the four wheels are mounted in a curve so only two wheels touch the floor making spins and turns easier.  At the rehearsals nobody fell over (which is more than you can say for the Winter Olympics:), some impressive grown up skating and spectacular lighting.  You can see the show next month ... we'll be there.

Armistice Day

Poppy tributes at St Michael's FramlinghamA poor start today to the Armistice Centenary but approaching 10am the steady rain went away and the sun came out.  The Framlingham Remembrance parade assembled as usual in New Road with encouraging involvement from youth organisations.  On the hill was the biggest crowd we've ever seen for the parade, big enough to rather swamp St Michael's churchyard.  Impressive hand made tributes both inside and outside the church ... a fitting tribute.
