Can anyone recommend a garage in Ipswich that will service and MOT our car at a reasonable price? Thanking you..
Landspeed....opposite holiday Inn at Copdock (so very near you). It's large and behind the Proveeda garage. Very straightforward and profession. Average prices I think.
Thanks for the recommendations 🙂

Yes I think they are read it in the paper a couple of days ago.
Archaeological. It is a requirement before they can build on the land. A lot was found rather close many years back including when they did the Star Lane gyratory.
Everytime I walk through St Stephens Lane/Arras Square now there seem to be more and more cars parked there. Its got a lot worse since BHS closed. I assume they are all parked illegally but why is no one enforcing the restriction here? And if there ... [ more ]
Hummm. Something is not right here. SCC say the restrictions can be legally enforced from the 3rd, and IBC are isduing tickets on the 2nd! Maybe just a dry run.... :-)
I went past earlier (Thursday) had a quick glimpse and the road was jammed pack with cars.

I had an alert from Suffolk Police to warn of rogue fish sellers in the area and to report any information to Suffolk Trading Standards via a national phone number run by Citizens Advice. (Suffolk TS seemed far removed from this reporting process. ... [ more ]
That address and phone number where it was caught sound interesting.(bit fishy).Well done Lesley.F.
There is Fishmonger who I've seen regularly on Broke Hall in a small white van. I don't think he cold calls though, he seems to have his regulars.
Can anyone recommend a reliable person to sort out my laptop before I throw it out of the window please. Since upgrading to Windows 10 it's not been right.
Although Windows 10 is not everyone's cup of tea, there are ways to make it work better. Come and speak to one of our local IT experts for free at Suffolk AgeUK Ipswich Help Centre (in Town Centre, opposite Sainsbury's) to get some some impartial ... [ more ]
Nothing wrong with Windows 10... you just need to read, search, and the set it up the way you want too.. Mine works just like Windows 7.. but its faster, and more secure. Just stick with it... it,s the best operation system.
Hi, Belstead Allotments have a couple of plots becoming vacant soon. If you are interested in growing your own fruit and vegetables or have any questions let me know.

I also remember the indoor market at the Corn Exchange albeit only vaguely but I am certain that it was successful and well attended. I recently visited Tavistock Market which is 800 years old and open six days a week. It will close later this year ... [ more ]
The market was indoor at the Corn Exchange for several decades. I haven't seen a UK outdoor supermarket yet... perhaps people would appreciate an indoor market?

Barely two weeks into the New Year and already traffic chaos in and around Ipswich due to road works. Handford Road, Woodbridge Road, St Helen's Street, Wherstead Road all single lane or temporary traffic lights. In the case of St Helen's Street, the ... [ more ]
but they're not working seven days a week, are they? And when you say remodelling, how? The traffic at the moment is fighting to come out of an exit that was created by the council that goes against all common sense? No temporary lights were placed on ... [ more ]
Take Princes Street for example, when work finally got going they did it relatively quickly. Not fast but not too unreasonable. Before that it was months of little progress.
It always comes as bit of a shock when habits lasting years suddenly come to an end. Checked with school staff just to make sure that the car parked in the bins place was not my mind playing tricks on me.
One less car parked on the road
