Framlingham in 2013

su 29 Dec

The risk when you use an air gun in public like this twat in Framlingham  is it could prompt an armed response from the police ... and this is Chrismasy, a Halesworth scout hut burnt to the ground on Christmas morning.

Perhaps we should explain for those unfortunates who don't live near the coast, ITV News in Victoria Mill Road popular singing artists Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift dined in the Framlingham Station Monday night.

All things will pass ...Five years ago today the wheelie bins arrived in the now disappearing industrial south of Framlingham  and what was then Solar was ram raided by four balaclavaed men.

Apart from giving the world Stephen Fry past presidents of the Cambridge FootlightsCambridge Footlighter Rosa Robson have included WS Gilbert of Gilbert and Sullivan, Peter Cook, Eric Idle and (why does this not surprise us) David Mitchell.  In 2000 we saw the Footlights in the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds.  We saw the 2013 show Saturday night in Framlingham  ... things have changed, no longer conventional revue more Stuart Lee type pulling the nature of comedy apart but that didn't stop it be very funny.  All four performers were skilled, had the show down pat and we particularly liked the extended solo mime piece by Rosa Robson ... absolutely no walking against the wind.  Keep bringing this stuff to Fram Slice of Life, the mental gene pool needs to be expanded.

The Gentleman Plumber cateringMore pix of the Dunwich Dynamo in the early morning around Framlingham; a charmingly moist lady (early on the mist was so heavy it felt like rain) and two spaniels enjoying the ride.  The Gentleman Plumber's pop up cafe by the water tower served until gone 11am, sold out (coffee and tea is free) of everything including the vegetarian sausages but only just broke even and that's not counting everybody's time (the GP was on his feet for 12 hours).

Yoxford Barley Brigg♫We looked Barley Brigg Morris up on the web and they seemed to be from Yorkshire, Blimey we thought they've come a long way .  When they announced themselves on the Market Hill Framlingham  Thursday night they're from Yoxford ... pix on Facebook.

Someone else has found Benhall, a strimmer stolen from a garden shed but more worryingly a white Ford Ranger pickup containing a shotgun and cartridges was stolen from Victoria Mill Road Framlingham  last night.

Fore Street  FramlinghamFeels like it's all kicking off in Framlingham  today, a death in Fore Street and two police vehicles and a paramedic in Station Road.

We were surprised to discover that the building at the back of the Lemon Tree Framlingham  which for a bit B&G used to sell fishing tackle was once the fire station, didn't stop the 1905 Fore Street fire though did it?  It's now in da cottage selling collectables, design, artisan chocolate and by mid-morning yesterday most of Andy Cole's lovely bread had already gone.  They are open Fridays, Saturdays and by appointment.

Framlingham Market HillProviding a plot line Sunday for the BBC's very punted The Village 1916 (two years into the Great War) was the first time this country used conscription to man its army, and didn't the great and the good use them well.  So Private J Potter from Bedfield couldn't have been a conscript but this 1915 note from his mum on a postcard of Framlingham's Market Hill is still very poignant.

The Framlingham chip van's last nightA fish supper for one yesterday from the chip van outside the Framlingham  Station had added poignancy as the van's not coming back anymore.  They will still visit Laxfield and this perhaps highlights that ... more on Laxfield

The Framlingham Railway in 2009Despite mutterings for perhaps years we didn't think it would happen, the Framlingham Railway (not the Station) is FOR SALE which means there won't be an Adnams pub in the town ... Suffolk eh?

No soapbox racing in Framlingham  this year, the town's council (the political wing of Framfare) has claimed responsibility.  Anyone near the coast contemplating the Red Bull jobbie in a large town this March?

Dr Stephen NortonPoignant to reflect that Dr Stephen Norton passed away five years ago last Sunday after only just over a year's retirement and having served Framlingham  for 33 years.  We feel confident that he is still missed by the many who benefited from his careful consideration.
