Odd 'Diverted traffic' sign in Fairfield Road FramlinghamConsidering Fairfield Road Framlingham is closed for two months between Fairfield Crescent and Brick Lane there's more traffic than you might expect at the Fore Street end.  The Diverted traffic sign at the Fore Street junction (and there's a second sign as well) seems oddly unneeded.  Is it to tell the residents of The Knoll and Fairfield Road how to get to Brick Lane?

Chugganauts singing, music and movement for pre-school children starts tomorrow at the Campsea Ashe Station House.

Dining & Fuction SuiteThough the Framlingham Barclays' Framlington might be described as viral our 2007 Fuction pic of the adjacent Crown Hotel was only ever mildly infectious.  The sign was for the opening of the converted stables at the rear of the Crown as Reubens.  Round about this time we saw the teenage Ed Sheeran cycle past the historic hotel but not any Ipswich Town footballers.
