Artist Anne Smith in front of her reliefsWe are told Saturday's formal opening of the Bruisyard village hall was attended by several hundred, somewhat fewer Sunday.  The hall is intimidatingly pristine with three French windows and a kitchen serving hatch accessing the outside where impressively the lighting is solar powered LED and movement triggered.  The hall stands on a field bought by the parish council in 1995 when the village's agricultural engineers went bust ... what a good decision that's turned out to be ... buying the field that is, not going bust.  More pix on Facebook.

Little Bealing village hallCentral Suffolk Lib-Dem candidate Andrew Aalders-Dunthorne was canvassing in The Bealings yesterday  but we couldn't find him (poor mobile reception); regrettable because graphically on the Internet he's the invisible man.  Not a wasted afternoon though as The Bealings are utterly charming, a cobweb of tiny lanes that sometimes make you feel you've wandered onto someone's drive, a pub, a railway station ignored by trains since 1956 but it must have featured in a Miss Marple, and a small but perfectly formed church hall.

fr 30 Apr

Therese Coffey with panini and chipsCoastal Suffolk Conservative candidate Therese (it's French) Coffey lives in Westleton so she can't get Channel 5 or Freeview and no doubt rubbish broadband.  When she asked BT why near the coast broadband is so rubbish so close to BT's research centre they said Oh, their broadband is rubbish too.  We found out yesterday at the Martlesham Black Tiles that Therese has stood as an mp once before, her rescued dog Rizzo is very patient, when she ordered the panini she hadn't realised it came with chips, and is very aware this time round she's not a shoo in.  More pix

Cratfield Poacher  des' dinners 77

NaTCH  found the Cratfield Poacher on Wednesday in the traditional manner by wandering about until he tripped over it and then with the Gentleman Plumber, whose satnav had taken him right to the pub, they approved of Woodfordes Nelson's Revenge (4.3%) whilst Tony stuck to Adnams and there was hare for a main course.  Conversation included the barn owl NaTCH had seen out hunting on his way there and which Fox brother was appearing at the theatre in Bungay.  Folk at The Poacher on third Wednesdays and bands on occasional Saturdays ... if you can find it:)  AfARs from Amanda (Ron wouldn't let her have the satnav) and Nick (boring old work again).  (first proper visit  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)
