Dear All,

At last things to seem to be getting to a new sort of normality.

  • Halesworth Pumas who play on Rumburgh cricket ground had their first game last week. The next home game is this Tuesday 8th June.

I think the start time is around 6:00pm. I heard there were several spectators who had the foresight to take a garden chair and some liquid refreshment. Others went to the Rumburgh Buck after the game, a good time was had by all especially as the Pumas won their first game of the season.

Other home games in the diary are: Tuesday July 7th, Tuesday July 20th,  Thursday 29th July, Tuesday 3rd August.  There are others later to be confirmed.

  • Also back on track is the quiz at the Rumburgh Buck on Wednesday June 30th.  Teams of 6 and booking is advisable. 01986 785 257.
  • On Sunday July 18th is the Charity Tractor Run to raise money for the Waveney Food Bank and The Liberty Project. £10 per tractor and £1 per passenger. Starting at Sotterly Park and stopping at Brampton Village Hall for lunch at about 12:30.  I am sure there will be more info nearer the time.
  • The Sole Bay Health Centre are no longer offering vaccinations because there are not enough people coming to appointments. Local surgeries will still be vaccinating though.
  • The Halesworth Hopper is now  running again.


If you have anything happening in your village that I can include for you, please let me know, and then afterwards how the event went.


Church services:

  • On Sunday 13th June, For The Saints Benefice, 10 am, St. Margaret South Elmham and at 17:00 an outdoor service at St. James South Elmham.
  • For The Blyth Valley, services can be found on their website


Looks as if summer is finally here.


Take care,  Sange and Steve
