Bury Saints American football new playersDespite hints of rain and a wind that made our camera holding hands a touch painful some 30 at the Bury Saints new player session yesterday in Stowmarket.  No contact until January and the players divide themselves in to defence and offence.  A second Bury new player session next weekend in the Bury leisure centre (been there for roller derby) and nearer to the ntc homeland Ipswich Cardinals have two newbie sessions next month.

Romeo and Juliet in StowmarketLast night's thunderstorm wasn't that much in Stowmarket and hardly hindered the Keeper's Daughter's dress rehearsal of their promenade Romeo and Juliet in and around the John Peel Centre.  The show goes on the road tonight starting in Lowestoft and is a very different way of telling a 400+ year old story.

Part of the Wyverstone ammunition stashThe thing about chairman of the parish council James Arnold's highly illegal 460+ firearms stash in Wyverstone (the other side of Stowmarket from near the coast) was the some 200,000 rounds of ammunition and other explosives.  Kept in close Rifles from the Wyverstones arms cacheproximity and a single room if there had been an accident there would have been a fireworks display the village wouldn't forget.

Arnold died of pancreatic cancer in July 2014 before he could face charges but last Friday following a related enquiry firearms dealer Anthony Buckland received six years for fraud and selling prohibited weapons.

Just had a swimA display of Minis near the Moot HouseLovely weather for boulevardiers in Aldeburgh this afternoon.  This handsome fellow had clearly been enjoying a swim, a display of Minis, and on the new piste cunningly placed right outside the White Lion petanque was being played.  The match was a friendly between the

Another passer by lookingnewly formed Aldeburgh Club and the Meadlands club from Stowmarket.  The action was certainly attracting interest from passers by and it would seem part of petanque's point is sociability.
