I'm home Saturday's after 12 onwards if that's ok
That's fine , where you live ? I am on 57 Defoe Road my number 07990 083450.
It has be suggested that we bring this subject up again--can we have your views on this and the reason why--if the Orwell bridge shut down the Valley road gets grid locked--if the big expansion comes about North of Westerfield--it will get worst--I can ... [ more ]
Hi, as noted above I contacted Mr Gummer about the NBP as this was most definitely something he was planning to act on prior to the election and has had brief mentions in his publicity since. A Northern Route is a stated part of his 6 point vision for ... [ more ]
When I started this debate--Because a streetlifer suggested that I do so--I said that I would do all that I can to get an answer from the SCC if we were able to get 100+ hits-- since then Martin C has come to my aid and believe me when I tell you this ... [ more ]
I have seen somewhere, but not sure it was on Streetlife, reference to a local French Conversation Group. Does anyone know or have any information please? Thanks
Thanks Annie, like the sound of that!
Hi - for anyone a member of U3a I run a conversation group for beginners. The group is full at present, but you can put your name on the waiting list. There is also an intermediate group.
We are going away for three months from the end of February and would like to find a loving foster home for our beautiful pet. He is 8years old and loves people but unfortunately is not used to living with children or dogs. Is there anyone who would ... [ more ]
Thanks to everyone who helped and offered advice. I am pleased to say we will have a house and cat sitter who is known to us. There are some very helpful and kind people about
That's great news! Like Rhiannon R I have two cats and they would not of been pleased! but would of willingly come and fed him, but he probably wants company too! Good Happy Ending!😺
Can anyone recommend a good removal company

Does anybody know why the walnut tree in Winchester Gardens has been cut down. As I walked down Bacon Road yesterday I was shocked to see two men in orange hats, up the tree with a chainsaw. I think that tree must have been well over 100 years old and ... [ more ]
Yes John, but it takes hundreds of years for English Hardwoods to mature. We really should force the councils to reinstate the duty to place protection orders, and to enforce them. This issue has been a victim of cuts but once an old tree has gone, it's ... [ more ]
As you say John T trees with a protection order can be lopped but you have to get permission before doing this. I was told when a 60 year old cherry orchard was cut down by a developer in our neighbourhood that if you suspect a tree is in danger you can ... [ more ]
Can anyone recommend locally a fence company to replace a broken post. Fencing is OK! Thanks
Valley Farm Landscapes did an excellent job replacing a couple of posts for me last year. 07917 807057/01473 784959
Thank you Madeleine
I am so fed up with the car parking situation at Heath Road. Sadly we are in the position of having to visit the hospital frequently to attend appointments and the time lost by driving endlessly round and around the car park looking for a space is ... [ more ]
It's cheaper for me to use p & r as I don't yet (maybe never with this government) have a bus pass
I started a thread about trying to save the park and ride some time ago as have found it so easy to attend the hospital. One can wait inside the spacious hall at either end so no need to be cold or wet, and the bus stop at the hospital is covered. If ... [ more ]
Does anybody know when river path will be reopened
This is part of the Gipping Valley River path, so who owns this bit ? Is it a Barham Parish Council responsibility ?
Perhaps it would be worth contacting the Rver Gipping Trust - their website has a contact telephone number.
Can anyone recommend anywhere good to go to have a new will done?
Thank you for that I will bear that in mind!
We had a party when we made our wills and gave a copy to each of the executers so there would be no unpleasant surprises for our children.
I was walking my dog earlier and I noticed how poor the car park area is these days. It's never been great, but it just seems really bad now. there are large pot holes (which may now contain fish) and large rocks that are surfacing from the generally ... [ more ]
Hi Mark please contact Claydon & Whitton Parish Clerk by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01473 687384 (Mon-Fri). The Recreation Ground does urgently need committee members, so I'm sure she would be pleased to hear from you. Thanks.
Thanks Anne D and thanks Mark C wish there were more people around here who would put actions before words.
Please has anyone got a post hole digger I could borrow or rent as I need to fix a busted post. I will pay for the loan or make a donation to a nominated charity in return. Many thanks, Andy White.
Anyone know what's happening? Suddenly closed last Wednesday.
I have just been searching for this year’s dates for bin collection and note that the Mid Suffolk twitter site gives this link as they no longer send out the leaflets. http://ow.ly/WHiLd Does this mean that those without internet are psychic, or do ... [ more ]
I had seen the Mid Suffolk Christmas/New Year recycling calendar on this site and therefore prepared to put my bin out today. However, yesterday (my usual bin collection day) it seemed that everyone else in my area had put their bin out causing me to ... [ more ]
I'm glad it helped, Interested. I saved the image as a photo - from Facebook I think.
On a recent trip to London I had a close encounter with a cyclist riding on the pavement, apparently in some parts it is the norm. I note that Claydon Parish Council and I quote from InTouch “is very concerned that cycling, sometimes at speed, by ... [ more ]
Its no use having laws that are not enforced ever. Cyclists ride up and down pavements,on and off pavements. Most do not have lights,most do not ride as per the highway code. This has been the norm in Ipswich since about 1980. Also in Ipswich they ride ... [ more ]
I agree entirely with Nadine H's comments. SCC - our local PCSO is fully aware of the problem and the High School have been alerted to it too, but it still continues. A few school children do wheel their bikes past the bus shelter which is ok, but many ... [ more ]

Today I noticed that a tiny yellow poster has appeared on a lamppost in Norwich Road between Coopers way and Barham Church lane for a planning application for 14 houses with responses due back by the 29th December! There is nowhere to park nearby so ... [ more ]
It is interesting that Barham is not alone, other areas are being short changed on consultations. For those who have not seen the reference in yesterdays EADT to 52 houses in Creeting St Mary. http://goo.gl/SKDzWl Thanks YM for your comments and ... [ more ]
Just noticed in yesterdays EADT this planning application had been entered with a cut off date for comments within 21 days of 6th January, ie 27th January. So we have a local yellow posted notice saying that it is 29 December 2015 (not that you can ... [ more ]
Hi guys. I'm a private landlord who rented his house to a couple in Chantry. Husband works for Ipswich buses. Unfortunately I did not register their rent as I did not realise it was the new law. This couple haven't paid rent in 5 months. I have engaged ... [ more ]
It's very complicated. My sister can make it VERY difficult if I did ask them to leave.
I think you need to take a stand with your sister. Sometimes one has to actually stand firm with someone, even if it is a family member. Do you have no rights regarding YOUR house? It's bonkers that you have to work more hours because your sister's ... [ more ]

Can any one recommend a man with a van to collect household items from felixstowe to bramford . Looking for reasonable price .
We have used. manwithvanipswichipswich.co.uk very pleasant and reliable. 01473 603310. They charge by the hour for a job and you could also look at hiring a self drive van from somewhere such as thrifty
Hi Jo Thanks for the info , I will give them a call .
hi all does any body know of a good cheep road side mechanic to do my pads on front of car thanks and happy christmas all
Hi Jim Did you see Watchdog program re fake brake pads? Be very careful with 'cheap' repair. Few extra pounds could save your or somebody else's life.
What is meant by cheap is dependent on what car it is , what pads are used and how easy or difficult they are to fit. I would go to Halfords or similar . Working at the roadside tnis time of year is nobodys idea of fun either. First start if not going ... [ more ]
