Last week, Dan was delighted to join residents for the annual Framlingham Christmas Fair held in the grounds of the famous castle. As people enjoyed the refreshments on offer, skated on the ice rink and visited the many local stalls, Dan took part in the carol singing along with Councillor Christopher Hudson. Young people were able to visit Santa’s Grotto while entertainment was provided by local band the Broadside Boys as the Castle car park was turned into a winter wonderland.
The event, hosted jointly by the Castle Inn pub and the Framlingham Castle, was a great success and Dan would like to thank Alan Knight and his wife Henrietta, who run the Framlingham Inn, along with the Co-operative, Pat Betts of Hatchers Components, Framlingham Business Association and many other local businesses, for supporting the event. Dan always enjoys visiting the historic market town of Framlingham and he very much looks forward to visiting the Christmas Fair again next year.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
