Biohazard Zones, V-Day Bike Ride and Diss Misc - 13th-17th February 2007

Like some post-apocalyptic horror film, like "28 Days Later" or that one with the virus outbreak (from the 70s), large swathes of Suffolk are ringed with doom-laden warnings of avian flu (the root cause being an outbreak of the potentially-deadly HN51 strain at a Bernard Matthews farm in Holton near Halesworth). The western edge of this zone happens to be near Nosher's pad and local pub on the A140. Later, in Cambridge, Isobel cooks home-made pasta for V day. On Saturday a contingent from the pub cycling club head over to the Framsden Doberman - Nosher is due to do a band photoshoot in the afternoon so skives off. Then there are a few photos from around Diss, including another derelict (or at least redundant) petrol station on the junction of Stuston Road and the A1066: until fairly recently it was the Broadland Fuels garage.
