The first time you hear the mysterious churring of a nightjar at dusk on a late spring evening is a moment that stays with you for the rest of your life - and one you will want to repeat.Join our guide for a leisurely, late evening walk to possibly hear this magical bird churring from a song post in spring or maybe see it flitting low over the heath in summer. As night falls we might as well hear the roosting birds on the estuary or a hooting tawny owl in the nearby woodland. We will also look for bats and glow-worms on the warmer summer evenings. These walks are organised by 'Wild Adventures under Suffolk's Skies'. Please find the full details, the latest list of available dates and the online booking form published on www.WASuffolk.co.uk and contact Monika on WASuffolk@gmail.com for more information. Additional dates for groups of 3+ people are possible on demand! This walk is suitable for all levels of knowledge.Please consider that we will walk over very rough and uneven ground in the darkness and bring a small torch. Long-sleeved and dark coloured clothing, insect repellent and sturdy closed footwear are strongly recommended.Unfortunately, because this heathland reserve is a wild location with fence and kissing gates to keep the livestock inside, the path is not fully accessible by wheelchairs or push chairs.We can not accept dogs at this walk, because the nightjar could take them as potential predators and disappear out of our sight.The RSPB and 'Wild Adventures under Suffolk's Skies' are working together to give nature a home. £3 of your fee will go to the RSPB to fund nature conservation on the Suffolk coast.
Please note: this event is not organised by the RSPB
Price: £9; places are limited to 8 participants per walk and booking in advance with Monika is essential.

Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot + VW Dub Show on May 29th from 8am #carboot, 29th May 2016, 8:00 to 14:00 at Stonham Car Boot, Pettaugh Road, STonham Aspal (14.9 miles)

Stonham Barns Sunday Car Boot is on every Sunday from 8am. Next one is Sunday May 29th 2016 and we also have the Dublogic VW Show at the same time so we are expecting good weather and another big crowd as it's very popular. I expect the covered stalls to go quickly but, we are now on the big field so there's lots of room. When you enter Stonham take the left into the field and wait to be positioned. Events often run at the same time as the Car Boot. After this one the next is the Stonham Dog Extravaganza on June 12th. Make sure you check the Events page regularly as we have quite a few good ones this year. See you on Sunday from 8am.

Stonham is the one to go to if you want a great relaxing day without being hassled and able to set up in peace. Each week the buyers will increase dramatically and we are lucky to have ones that actually buy. Stonham is known for its one off sellers and Antiques and after 4 years we are getting a good regular crowd of sellers and buyers. Everyone loves Stonham as its unbeatable when the weather is good. It has a great atmosphere, a knowledgeable friendly crowd made up of all ages. Families, young and old, It's dog friendly and caters for the disabled. You can still sell from �£5 right up to �£10 for Covered stalls. These are really a hit with the sellers as you can book by texting 07817539168, pull up behind, set up and sell and pack up and leave at the end of the day. Alternatively, we are still the cheapest in Suffolk so you can just turn up from 8am and sell from �£5.

Once we are on the field we allow sellers as much space as they require and you can even bring a gazebo and set up. We allow anyone to sell most things the only restriction we have is with plants whereby we allow small vans/cars selling plants grown from home but, they will need to be part of a variety of things sold. Anyone selling old gardening tools etc is fine. Call me if unsure. It's just common sense you just need to bring a variety rather than a van full of just flowers.

Something I think is really important and is part of the whole idea of the Traditional Car Boot, is the fact that you can sell without the fear of things being stolen or being pestered whilst setting up. I hear that this is a problem at so many Car Boots but, we are a big family Car Boot.

We are on the Coastal Route & in Summer have the Campsite and Holiday Homes full up and filled with Car Boot lovers. We have a guaranteed extra crowd already there. Plus with all the attractions, Shops, Golf/Fishing, Owl Sanctuary, Serpent House/Pet Shop, Toy Shop, Ladies fashion and so many other things to see and do we are such a great venue for a Car Boot. On top of that we have the big events running in tandem with the Car Boot.

Sellers tend to arrive from 8am onwards (we do allow earlier but, Stonham wakes up after 9am with the shops and attractions also opening at 10am).

We are outdoors only but offer covered stalls. We try to open every week irrespective of the weather as we still get buyers and sellers.

07817539168 stonhambarnscarboot@hotmail.co.uk for information on the Car Boot and Events at Stonham Barns.

We are fundraising to create a brand new creative story telling project for under 5's and their families in Chantry and surrounding areas. Designed to give parents the tools and encouragement to read to their children and have the confidence to bring stories alive, laying the groundwork for a child's later social, communication and interpersonal skills. Through sponsorship you can make a really big difference to local lives in your local community.

Decide on a piece or extract you want to perform from any of the 37 plays and 154 sonnets by the brilliant bard. This can be anything from 1 minute to 30 minutes. You can perform this on your own, with your friends, your group, your colleagues or maybe even your dog. No animals were harmed in the making of this sentence...

Don't worry, you don't have to take part in the entire 25 hours, unless you want to. You will be given a choice of time and allocated a slot. So if you've ever fancied playing 6th Citizen in Coriolanus at eight o'clock in the evening or 2nd Pirate in Pericles at half past one in the morning,now is your chance.

All you have to do is ask people to sponsor you for this big feat of a Shakespeare feast. The minimum donation amount to take part is only �£10, or 10 sovereigns if that's the way you roll.

Bounceability meet at 157 Colchester Road, Colchester Road, West Bergholt, Colchester (7.8 miles)
Bounceability is something we are born with. Think about a child learning to walk. No matter how many times they might stumble and fall, they get right back up again and try again until they get it right. The trouble is that as we grow up our view of the world is shaped and fashioned by our experiences, and sometimes we become fearful of trying again. We get stuck into negative patterns of behaviour and ways of thinking and sometimes just don't know how to change. Have you got stuck or just forgotten how to be happy? Have you given up trying? Maybe you could use some Bounceability.
So whether you feel as if you are in a rut but can't figure out how to get out of it; if you have made bad choices and are struggling with the consequences of your decisions; if you have a bad habit that you want to eliminate; if you want to lose weight or stop smoking; if your nerves are getting the better of you or if something outside your control has had an impact on your life, or whatever is stopping you from living the life of your dreams, you need some Bounceability.
