Adam Wolley of the epic trans-Africa bike ride was dining with his parents in the Framlingham Station last night; in that British way he's somewhat dismissive of his achievements, including carrying on after the very nasty injury in Rwanda. We suspect Adam would be happy to speak to your organisation about the Malaria Consortium (he's doing it tonight in a large town near Chelmsford) but he is starting a new job in Hertfordshire.

Farctum/Grethic didn't go as far as lipstick and earrings but she did give quite a makeover to her lane's ditch in the rarely visited Dennington-Saxtead Triangle (it's like the Ambridge-Penny Hassett Triangle, the phones only occasionally work as the residents keep making bangles out of the wires). Not surprisingly her net on a stick turned up a lot of discard but four (yes 4) brandy bottles?

Can't think of a nicer way to vote; in a caravan at the back of the pub in Saxtead
with a very welcoming Clerk and Presiding Officer, though Muffin at the Badingham polling station was doing his best. The four polling stations are open till 10 pm and you don't need your poll card to vote though it helps.
