I came across the details of this years Suffolk Craft Society Summer Show
Photos on my phone no longer come out well (or at all) but this is a general view. There seemed to be fewer exhibits than some years.
I might find a little frame for the Orwell Bridge print because of it's links to Colin..........when the bridge was first built it was under the care of Suffolk County Council Bridge Section and Col had to go down inside the bridge a couple of times which involved lifting a heavy metal cover and climbing down a steep ladder. The whole SCC Bridge Section were very glad when the road and bridge opened properly and the job of looking after it transferred to the National Highways Agency, now called Highways England, who look after the Motorways and main A roads like the A14.
Snape Maltings have now got more places to eat - including a tipi....... so I treated myself to a vegetarian sausage roll (very tasty) with salad which came in a box (like a KFC only posher!) and a locally produced apple juice.
After lunch I took some photos of the iconic view of the maltings and reed-beds but couldn't get them to transfer off the phone and that's not the only reason I may need a new phone soon. Must remember to take my proper camera everywhere this year even if it is a bit big for lugging about.
It was a real treat to be able to get back to the normality of a visit to an exhibition and lunch out. Hopefully by this time next year even smaller, local events will be up and running and maybe without a mask..............Fingers crossed.
Today is my 75 minute appointment at the dentist and it's also going to be jolly hot so I'm looking forward to it even less.
