Have any of you purchased one? If so, do you like the softener? What are the pros and cons that you have experienced? Theresa.
Cannot think of a negative apart from the cost. Benefits are softer water , cleaner bath shower and sink. You use less detergent washing powder shampoo and your skin will be the better for it.
Cannot recommend them highly enough. Good trouble free softener. No electrics. Friendly helpful staff. Worth paying a bit extra. Block salt consumption depending on use. Ours (4 bedroom house) cost around £25 for 6 month supply.
Yes we need NEW jobs but does moving workers and existing business from Hadleigh count. We get the extra traffic and noise and no doubt another visual eyesore but what else? https://ppc.ipswich.gov.uk/appndetails.asp?iAppID=16/00898/FUL

This is a lovely charity shop to visit - mostly because of the friendly welcome, but also because of the variety of goods for sale at very reasonable prices.
I know recommendations for electricians have previously been posted but I would appreciate an up to date recommendation for an electrician to install a twin power socket in the IP1 area.

Streetlife is just the platform for alerting people to the fact that thefts are still happening at the hospital. Yes, report it, but at least now it's now in the open.

Why are they taking down bus shelters. The latest one to go is in Bramford. What is the idea behind this pointless thinking.
Things are not always bad. The Bramford bus shelter at Gables corner has been removed in order to make way for a new one. Just have a little patience.
