Walking on sunshine in issue 431 of aboutfram 

Isn’t it wonderful to suddenly see the diary starting to fill up? The joy of seeing friends and family again is one that just can’t be beaten but there is something rather lovely too about hopping in the car on the spur of the moment and enjoying an outing to one of the many wonderful places on Framlingham’s doorstep.
And we will be out and about very soon as we have just gone to press on the exciting new issue of the magazine. You can read it online below, or look out for copies from next week - we think it's a corker!
