Reliable local tradespeople - for DIY, gardening and electrical jobs in and around Woodbridge. Proprietor Lesley Terry tells you what is on offer including her aim "to make all her Customers feel safe and confident especially the elderly and those living on their own".
Pupils from Year 5 at Woodbridge Primary School meet every couple of weeks with Catherine Larner to discuss a story selected for them from Young Browsers children's bookshop in the town.
Previous titles have included Broken Glass by Sally Grindley, The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd and I-Spy The Constantinople Caper by Graham Marks. Today the children - Harriet, Tom, Daniel, Ben, Charlotte, Shannon and Venetia - are talking about Millions by Frank Cottrell Boyce.
The book is about Damian, who lives with his father and brother. Damian's mum has recently died and he has become obsessed with the stories of the saints as he tries to make sense of what has happened to her. One evening he can't sleep and goes into the garden. As he's sitting there, a bag seems to fall from the sky and land at his feet. Inside the bag are thousands and thousands of notes. Damian shares the find with his older brother who believes the money has been stolen but will soon be worthless as the national currency is to change to Euros. The boys decide to spend all the money before the changeover date, and the story explores what happens when they try to do so.
Lynn Allen and Nick Marsh are both Countryside Officers with particular responsibility for volunteers. The Unit is responsible for the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which is one of Britain's finest landscapes. Located on the coast of East Anglia, it covers 150 square miles and includes wildlife-rich wetlands, ancient heaths, windswept shingle beaches and historic towns and villages.
In their Winter 2011 update hear about Christmas Celebrations for the Volunteers and lots about birds! This includes sightings and a visit to Minsmere. Lyn and Nick also encourage us to get out and about in our beautiful area - amongst many suggestions they give details of the Long Distance Walks available.
