Hi All, I noticed this morning that the Bramford Road has yet again taken another victim :( there's a ginger cat at the side of the road, very close to where the road splits onto Gipping Road. Does anyone know who's this might be? I've noticed this ... [ more ]
It's very sad that 3 cats have been run over on the Bramford Road recently but is this happening during the day or at night? As a cat lover and owner of one, I firmly believe that cats should be kept inside at night for a number of reasons - firstly, ... [ more ]

Well done on Radio Suffolk Watchful, you spoke well for so many of us, if there is a public meeting please let us know, I'm sure many of us will come along and support you.

I've been following Missy on the Doglost site also,and after just checking if any news I'm relieved to say that she's been found safe and well.
That's great news - I kept thinking about her and her owners! 😀

If all you can see in this protest is spending an extra 15 minutes in bed and allowing a bit more time for car journeys, you are seriously mistaken.

I cannot be alone in thinking that I am being manipulated, and I have two options; one to just ignore the situation and blame the system or I can have an uphill battle and try to do something about it. We have a housing development process that ... [ more ]
I am with John T we should turn up for the next Council Meeting on the 7th Nov, if only to find out what our Council think and to see what we can do about this proposal before it's to late. So I for one will be there.
James re planning process, we just need to identify valid reasons, and not like I don't want it. See recent noises on the northern fringe developments, where residents have put in valid objections. https://goo.gl/pxZcJm Some of the previous ... [ more ]

Perhaps IBC should be talking to Needham Market, they have a school that has become spare! No doubt to be turned into yet more housing. Where is the joined up thinking.
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.
Great news, thanks for the comment.
I spent last night at the Wolsey watching "Made in Dagenham" which was brilliant. The only thing that spoilt it a little was the changing ticket prices. A group of possibly 7 of us were going and we rang on a Thursday to check availability and price. ... [ more ]
I think that is totally wrong , I also have been to the Wolsey several times which I have enjoyed but unlike you I have booked when I phoned them don't see how prices can change like that because the prices are worked worked out long before the show ... [ more ]
Also, I hadn't noticed before but with the exception of the Panto, the ticket prices are no longer in the programme. There is a note on the Panto page however saying "As demand for tickets increases our prices are subject to change so book today for ... [ more ]
I have recently had spine operation and was on Martlesham ward. Apart from the fact that I was in pain and couldn't move much, it wasn't a bad experience at all. Everyone was pleasant and respectful, the food was fine (quite tasty actually) and ... [ more ]

I understand Suffolk County Council is responsible for this toilet. Yesterday there was no toilet paper, no soap and no hand towels in there. The towels bin was full of used paper. Please can this WC be restocked and cleaned more regularly.
Hi Anna, Glad to have helped. The team are trying to get this resolved as soon as possible - I'm not sure if the ones at the Buttermarket will be the next nearest to the Old Cattle Market one, but there is a list of the ones run by Ipswich Borough ... [ more ]
Thank you Abbie. These are useful sites and I appreciate you help.
Rumours are flying about that the Co-oP Meredith road is closing down-- although the staff know nothing about it-- these rumours are even floating down to them-- anyone know anything?
Quite right Ipswich Entrepreneur that's why I said in an earlier post 'keep an eye on that one'
As you say Ipswich Entrepreneur the TUPE is in place so the Coop employees should be alright -- I certainly hope so -- some have got a lot of service in --
