There are ghostly goings on in Littleport Library. Not all the time I hasten to add, but on Friday (February 2) at 7.30pm Robert Lloyd Parry will perform, ‘Oh Whistle’ - two ghost stories written by MR James.
Hopefully you won’t have had a sleepless night after hearing these tales of witchcraft and vengeance down the ages, and that next morning February 3, awaking refreshed, you might visit the historic, and possibly haunted, although much less frightening, Heritage centre in Main Street, where the bustling Adams Community Market is held on the first Saturday of every month.
Along with many traders selling their wholesome wares, like jars of local honey, the Littleport nutritionist Joanne Cole has a table selling her ‘Nourishing4You’ products.
And if you go to the market, you could always drop in to the many other shops in the centre of Littleport. Get your hair cut or coiffed, have a tattoo done, or have a snack - or even a meal!
And you can choose an inn that feeds you in style like the Plough and Harrow, or the Swan on the River, or just to slake a thirst at the Crown!
