stealing

Local Conversations in Ipswich Town Centre

Philly57
Just finished volunteering at a charity shop in Meredith road and what do I see, a middle aged man stealing a wooden jewellery box that cost all of £2.50. WHY BOTHER?? Hang your head in shame whoever you are.

Whitehouse park

Local Conversations in Somersham

Good to see the Police have moved swiftly and decisively to remove so-called travellers from the park. Wonder if the skips are provided by council or themselves
Rossi
Bit of sarcasm/irony. Despite the fact the skips are in place, they see fit to leave rubbish bags out. Quad bikes being ridden around on the park as well.  If i did that I'd get nicked. But its ok for them because its a lifestyle choice.

Thanks Mark J. When we next need a taxi I'll give him a ring. It's not often that we need a taxi but when we do it's frustrating that there's not one single taxi available in the whole of Ipswich.
