Printed by Gipping Press / gippingpress.co.uk Ufford PUNCH & Ufford PUNCHLINE TM registered You lot are lucky because it’s already balmy, sun-kissed and globally warmed March where you are, whereas I’m writing this on a freezing day in February. But there’s still enough winter left to try out some of the day trips featured in this month’s issue. So put down the mojito, change out of that bikini – what’s the world coming to? I remember when people put on evening dress to read the PUNCH - and get yourselves out on a little excursion. We’ve chosen some places you may have heard of already like, er, Felixstowe, Norwich and Orford, but we’re hoping to give you the inspiration to go visit them again. When you get back and you’re feeling cheerful, be sure to sober yourselves up by reading about the footpath closures that are envisaged for Ufford under the EDF Sizewell C plan. It’s not just about losing the pedestrian railway crossing, it’s also the possible loss of public access to the Water Meadows which are one of the great amenities for local walkers and dogs. Then when you’ve finished reading, do some writing to the EDF and your local representatives. Footpaths may seem a small matter compared to national energy policy, but if you’ve ever lived in a country where there’s no public right of way, you’ll know how under-appreciated these assets are.
