Buying a cheap shopping trolly on wheels comes to mind. Must be easier than trying to push a supermarket trolly any distance. But guess these people are too selfish to shell out on one!
Barry S
This problem has been going on for years ,just after Asda was opened . I was the councillor for the area and had numerous meetings with Asda . I would suggest someone contact the local councillors for help.

If you aren't given a receipt just stand your ground at the cash till.  When the cashier wonders why you're still there ask them why they haven't yet provided a receipt.

Well lets hope that no one was seriously injured.  But some people never seem to learn about speed and road conditions do they, they think they are invincible in their little metal boxes on wheels !!
Ipswich Entrepreneur
Indeed Madge, that is the problem... and what is worse for the rest of us, is their actions can take us out at anytime. I don't want to speculate but an educated guess would be the first group was the initial collision, and the second group was ... [ more ]

Nick W, I think they just take it and leave/dump it. I think it one of the reasons why the police aren't so bothered. It is anti-social and perhaps criminal damage; but unless they intend to keep it or sell it, it isn't theft in their eyes.  Maybe we ... [ more ]

Maybe just a recording saying we no longer deal with this. Or somewhere locally to drop things e.g. a pharmacy. Rather than have items sitting idle when they could be used.

Mobility aids and other equipment loaned to people by social services or the local NHS is most definitely wanted back. The Community Equipment Service (CES) does collect from people's homes, usually within 10 days, all it takes is a telephone call to ... [ more ]

While asbestos is dangerous if worked with, my guess is the signage also warns potential little cherubs that climbing up on the roof will result in a visit to hospital for broken limbs at best!!! Very fragile if weight is applied.
