The ‘quiet determination’ of a Stowmarket headteacher has paid off after his school was praised as ‘good’ by Ofsted. Ben Hemmings took charge at Chilton Community Primary in September 2016 and has been ‘instrumental in bringing about rapid school improvement’, the education watchdog said.
Citizens Advice Suffolk West is gearing up for a Chinese New Year dinner to raise vital funds - as the charity faces a cut to its council grant. The event at West Suffolk College’s Edmunds restaurant on March 2 will feature cuisine cooked under the guidance of a top London Chinese chef and entertainment by Chinese dancers. The charity organised a similar event last year and kickstarted a series of activities which raised more than £5,000 for the volunteer supported service.
‘Give and take’ is the secret for a ‘diamond’ Stowmarket couple, who celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary this week. Enid and Roger Mayhew, aged 81 and 83, met at a dance in Haughley in 1952 and married on January 18, 1958, at Stowmarket Parish Church. When they first met Mr Mayhew worked at Model Farm, in Combs, before joining the forces for three years. He was then a lorry driver and carried out maintenance work at paint company ICI, in Stowmarket, before retiring aged 59.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
