Does anyone please know of someone who might be able to do a repair to a sewing machine? I doubt there would be parts involved as it's a simple timing problem - I'm just not competent to do it myself Thanks
Thanks, Johan! Sam - cheers but Franklins just too expensive!
Good call from Johan! Tim @ Felixstowe Sewing School got me up and running in no time! Highly recommended and will use again! :)

I'm loathe to believe anything printed in the Ipswich Slur but someone who reads the rag tells me that the old Coop Department Story in Carr St is going to be turned into a school! Don't bother trying to get one of the disabled spaces at the rear ... [ more ]
Yes years ago i worked at carr street coop it is not right to change it in a school no were to park the cars . it look nice down what not not good down that end of the town
I went to a Victorian primary school in Ipswich with no grass and outside toilets. We had to walk to the local rec to play games. The old Co-op seems an odd place to put a school, but why not?
Does anyone know the best/cheapest place to buy garden lawn turf? I'm patching in a small area so only require 2 or 3 rolls. I live in Pinewood area of Ipswich. Many thanks
+1 for Victoria Nurseries. They sell good quality turf and you can buy as much or as little as you need.
That is good to know about Victoria Nurseries
Any recommendations for where to go for gutter clearing? I have some grass started to grow in my gutter which needs clearing before it gets worse, fascias need doing too. Any local recommendations appreciated.

Just captured a friendly blue budgie in our garden on Rivers Estate. Have you lost one?
Anybody lost a quadcopter in the Landseer Park area?
Has anyone noticed the new Asda trolley park ? just before Downside on the right
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!
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.

Hi , can any one recommend a flue sweep contractor for a woodburning stove in the Ipswich area. What kind of price do they charge. Thanks Ian
Thanks for all your suggestions. I will check out your leads. Much appreciated
If your into DIY we bought our own brush and rods and do it ourselves. It's paid for itself over the years.
There was a multi-car RTC on the Ipswich-bound carriageway of the A14 on Saturday night near Creeting St Peter, several cars involved and debris all over the road. I couldn't see any news about it in any local newspaper, nothing on twitter or ... [ more ]
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 !!
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 ]
An Oxford Hardcore Motorcycle lock would stop the thefts happening. I have used one for ten years, never had a bike stolen

Try to go out when it's quiet, i.e. late night or early morning. If he's shut in somewhere and calling it may be easier to hear him. Apparently most cats that go missing are not that far from home, 100 yrds or so. Also, they often come home in the ... [ more ]
Did you ring the vets then?
It appears that B & M are planning to open in the recently closed Poundland in Carr Street. I saw this in the window today.

To be fair, it isn't a democracy in enterprise. Businesses will go where they think the money is. You could petition for IKEA etc. to come to Ipswich but unless they see a business case they won't. Sad to say, looking at the area from an outsider ... [ more ]
At 11.00am today there were 14 sets of road works going on in Ipswich, but on 120 miles of the M25 none. No wonder Ipswich traffic is in such a mess.
Cato not come home since last night IP2 area (Wherstead Road) chipped, but no coller, keeps coming home without it lol. Keep an eye out for him please.
So glad Cato is back safe and sound,such a worry they are so much a family member.
Took my grandson to the Pizza hut at Ransoms euro park last night ( his choice ) horrible. Sticky table, grubby finger marks everywhere lukewarm pizza. Tired looking salads a rip off in my opinion. Won't be going there again. Staff were very nice though
Even if it was a one off, or they were short staffed they still charge the same!
for pizza options, pizza hut is probably one of the worst

A long-shot but does anyone have any old windows, intact, preferably in a frame, and not too large? I'm building a shed from scratch and a bit of light in it would be fantastic! Thanks!

Yes giles white do also is very good
Thanks everyone, coincidentally Giles White was the first window cleaner to respond when I contacted him, I contacted about 4 in total. He can do them in the timescale, tomorrow/Friday and so far very professional.
