Would highly recommend Suffolk Dog Training on 07971 030960. Sue came to our house for the first 121 training when we got our golden lab pup & we followed up with weekly training which was excellent & helped us all so much.

Exactly my point not knocking them just seem to be a cost that could be removed from our council tax, if they have no powers.

Local Conversations in Little Bealings

To recap, the cycle lane is a 'shared use' path. Lots of junctions, lots of concealed driveways, pedestrians, dogs, obstacles. In short, it's not really a cycle lane at all and is way more dangerous than being on the road, a choice the cyclist is legally ... [ more ]
