Autumn is gently nuzzling in. But summer lingers on with strong sunshine, warm breezes and gentle rain between the cooler mornings and nights. All good for gardeners and plenty of time, we hope, to catch up on all those ‘tidying up’ jobs we love so much. John Keats so vividly brings this season to life.
“Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run; To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees, And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core; To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells With a sweet kernel; to set budding more, And still more, later flowers for the bees, Until they think warm days will never cease, For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.”

Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner Tim Passmore is inviting people living in and around the Eye area to his next Q&A session to talk to him and local officers about policing and crime issues in the area.
It’s an informal drop-in session between 4.30 and 7pm on Thursday 19 September at the Town Hall, 1 Broad St, Eye IP23 7AF. Everyone is welcome, there is no need to book in advance.
The PCC will be happy to talk about anything concerning the local community.
Tim Passmore said:
Hearing at first-hand what is going on in local communities is crucially important in my role as Suffolk’s PCC. I hope people will be encouraged to pop in and let me know what they think about policing and crime in the area.
These public engagement sessions really do make a difference. It is only by hearing what people think that I can represent their views, I hope people will take the opportunity to drop in – I will be very happy to discuss anything that concerns them.
