About Suffolk Gazette

You couldn’t make it up. Suffolk is full of strange and wonderful stories, and our tales explode across social media and get repeated by gullible mainstream media, including Sky News and national newspapers.

Join our vibrant Facebook page for updates and ensuing hilarity whenever someone comments after believing something we have written. Just click the Like button below.

Got a story for us? Use the contact form on the Contact Us page and send in an idea – and if we like it, we’ll get back to you or develop it ourselves, so long as it is not libelous, racist, sexist, abusive etc – and that it makes sense!

Want to just buy me a beer? Then head to the appropriately-named Buy Me a Beer page. The Suffolk Gazette is actually a one-man band, so beers help not just with creativity, but also to pay the tech bills.

For many years we lived in Wissett, famous for it’s Treacle mines. We used to celebrate with a Treacle Fair, to which Tate (haven’t got a blusted and sign)Lyle contributed tons of syrup. Thaas a good’n.


I was born a few miles from Rattlesden. Though I moved away many years ago I’m still affected. Do you have a self-help group?
