Pubs, glorious pubs. Suffolk has some of the best. We wanted to share some of our favourites with you, so welcome to the first edition of Your Suffolk Pub, brought to you by the team behind the Community News.

A Happy Easter is a perfect lunch with loved ones for Jonny Nicholson, chef-owner of The Sail Loft, Southwold. One of the first delights of the growing year in the countryside when it awakes come spring is new season lamb.

It's Spring Craft Fair time at the Hall – Saturday 6th April – will see a collection of very different stalls selling everything from superb photographic prints via food, to gifts for all those birthdays and special occasions. Do come along and have a cup of coffee/tea and a piece of home made cake and wander amongst the colourful array on offer and then there’s hot bacon rolls and tasty soups to savour at lunch time.

It is with enormous sadness that All Hallows’ board of trustees has to announce that All Hallows Healthcare Trust and all of its services are likely to close, subject to staff consultation. They have been forced to accept that it is now impossible to balance income and costs on an ongoing basis.

Were you born in Westhall or brought up in the village?   How often do you sadly attend a funeral and meet childhood friends, old school mates and past neighbours who you haven’t seen for a while, sometimes years?  But when you do, it is always on such an occasion, and where it is so often suggested that “…we must all get together in happier circumstances …”

IT'S open house at Slaughden Sailing Club and Aldeburgh Yacht Club (AYC) on Sunday 5th May and Sunday 19th May respectively and everyone is invited to come and have some fun. This is a chance to try sailing and learn some new skills; experience the beautiful river Alde in a boat – under wind or engine power. Sailing is an activity that can be enjoyed at any age and many levels.

Gippeswyk Singers, Phoenix Singers and Beccles Choral Society are delighted to announce they will be joining forces under the musical direction of their conductor Geoff Lavery to present:

THE February meeting of the Alde Valley Suffolk Family History Group will hear from Berry Mayall about childhood during the Second World War. Bringing in the harvest. Watching for enemy aircraft. Rescuing survivors from the wreckage of bombed houses. Keeping the family business running when parents were enlisted into war-work. These are just a few examples of how children and young people made substantial contributions to the war effort during the Second World War.
