'I cant do it'. Next Meeting is Tuesday 20th at 730 PM.

The next Meeting is on Tuesday 20th at 730 PM at Felixstowe Library as usual. The homwork subject as chosen by Zoe - sort of - will be 'I cant do it'.

Just a quick note to say that Dave is having a lot of trouble with his PC which has slowed down the rate of postings here and the appearance of the 6th Febuary report.

Felixstowe TV: Fishing Hut Burnt To The Ground

Felixstowe TV: Fishing Hut Burnt To The Ground: "Fishing Hut Burnt To The Ground
The fishing hut near the Spa Pavilion was destroyed by fire over the weekend, along with its contents. The building, which was well known to local residents for its distinctive lean, is thought to have been set alight around 2am in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The hut, on the beach next to Undercliff Road West, contained various items of fishing equipment, as well as two outboard motors and three sailboards. Two fishing boats alongside the hut were also thought to have been stolen."

EADT - Media descends on Suffolk again

EADT - Media descends on Suffolk again:

"THE world's media has descended on Suffolk for the second time in a matter of months.

After the county attracted attention because of the killings of five women in Ipswich, it is back in the spotlight again with the first UK outbreak of H5N1 bird flu on a commercial farm.

News organisations sent crews in helicopters and small planes into the clear blue skies above the factory in the rural village of Holton to try and learn more about the unfolding story."

next meeting Tuesday 6th Fenruary at Felixstowe Library at 7.30 pm

Hi Scribblers,

Just a reminder that our next Scribblers meeting is on this coming Tuesday 6th Fenruary at Felixstowe Library at 7.30 pm.

The homework was set to provide the first 500 words of an entry for the free to enter Bill Budner short story competition on 'The Sea'. The competition is still open for entries so it is hoped that all Felixstowe Scribblers will enter. There are three cash prizes up for grabs in the adult section, and a further three prizes in the under 16's section. So, if you have youngsters in your family, get them to enter too!

Details of the competition will once again be available at the meeting - and have also been included in a recent Evening Star.

Hope to see you on Tuesday so, until then,

Keep Scribbling!
