The two civic heads - Beccles Mayor Jeff Harris and Bungay Mayor John Groom - are getting together for a challenge which is likely to be a quiz between the two town councils at Beccles, with a date and venue currently being negotiated. And there is talk of a challenge between the Rotary clubs in the two towns.
And the St Mary's Practice at Bungay has challenged Worlingham Pharmacy to a giant Jenga game on May 23 at Bungay.
But one event planned has fallen by the wayside because of a lack of participants - the dog obedience trials which had been planned for May 31.
