If you fancy an amazing 'free' evening of entertainment over the Easter weekend, there are three performances of the Passion Play in Hornchurch, alongside the Queens Theatre. The passion Play has been enacted for the past twenty years, about every five years, and is a very professional performance, poignant and free. If you can make it, it is a very moving piece of theatre, of the last few days of Jesus, and his resurrection. The play starts about 7.30 on Good Friday, Saturday and Easter Sunday. There is ample parking in the Queens Theatre, and Sainsbury car parks, both are very close to the performances.
The Suffolk Villages Site is dedicated to those whom were brought up in the harsh life of Suffolk, often as agricultural labourers, who endured the hardships that we hopefully do not know now.
I support a couple of children through World Vision, and one is in Zimbabwe, poor kid. [No further comment - but World Vision is a great charity].
This site is also a sign of respect to all those whom have helped me in my search for an ancestry in Suffolk; plus those who supported a trip to Kenya - to help others, by my daughter. Many of these people were researching Suffolk, and this is my thanks.
The Suffolk Villages site will eventually encompass every Suffolk Village and Town, but bear with me - I also have a life. For the impatient, visit the Links page to see the work already done on Suffolk Public Houses. with Essex at deadpubs.co.uk and there is a separate Kent Villages site, too.
Here is a brief description of Suffolk according to the Suffolk 1830 White's Directory; this is transcribed by Colin Ager, whom is also helping me with many other census details for the site.
A new site for Cambridge Pubs should be of interest, as many of the servants / bar people / licensees appear to be from Suffolk - more to follow on this.
