Shepherd and dog

Tricia W in Broke Hall
I've just had Carvery there this evening and will never return, oh my word. The service was slow, the carver was in able to communicate, the food was not hot, the beer was flat and my wine defiantly lacked flavour. We had to find some one to pay the ... [ more ]

Ropes Drive/A1214 Junction

I thought it was time to open this can of worms up again. During the last thread on this topic (which unfortunately has been closed down), it was suggested that a trial would take place in September/October and that a meeting of KTC had suggested between ... [ more ]

Like Keith, a very satisfied customer of T C Aerials. Quick, efficient and very professional. Gave us lots of great information and as we wanted to move position of tv, they checked what level of signal we would get.

Street parking.

Reg W in Kesgrave
Street parking. Please take care how and where you park-that is, if you have to park in the road. Parking on a bend is dangerous and parking in the turn round bay at the end of each road is crazy as if the bay has cars parked it causes vehicles to ... [ more ]

Floor layer

Stephanie H in Kesgrave
We have some 'click 'n lat' flooring that needs laying. The room is a conservatory roughly 10ft square. Anybody out there recommend anybody? Thanks.
Sue W
Yes certainly do one of the ladies on this site has already used him and he has layed floor in the whole of my bungalow.  Reliable and extremely neat and tidy Luke Mobile: 07805 011223


Yes it's a type of air flow system for damp/condensation/mould problems but was hoping someone on here either had one installed or knew someone else who had.

When I worked for the MOD in the late 80's it was the civil services social club but I didn't know the area then and couldn't find it but no-one I knew went there or recommended it so I didn't bother with it.
I worked at BT research dept from 1972 and the Hollies was bought sometime around then. I think it was originally the Research Sports and Social Club (RSSC). At some we had to join the CSSC as well which was the civil services social club.

Dog Owners Again

Gary P in Rushmere St Andrew
In my previous posting I expressed the opinion that some dog owners are just careless.  I was wrong. I have just cleared up SOME of the mess left in the same small area of the field and it looks like the crap of the same largish dog. It seems that this ... [ more ]

I think the result of having such high licences would over whelm the rescue charities. and dogs would be dumped everywhere. Not a practical solution im afraid.
Kesgrave cameras .
I suppose if you take Alan's argument further we could limit households to one car each with road tax starting at £1000/year. After all, cars do kill and injure people, that's much worse than stepping in dog poo. Car drivers could also be branded as ... [ more ]

There are 2 car parks for the shops in Martlesham so if one is full drive over to the other one.  I have never had an issue parking at any time I have gone there.
Laurence H
You are right Sivergran but it is only just in Kesgrave and hardly in the centre of things.  If I lived in Dobbs lane and the Port Office was not moved there I could easily walk into Martlesham to the Post Office in McColls or even to the one in Black ... [ more ]

Sadly those "fat cats" who feel that they have the answers do not always consider the consequences. Witness the frightful mess made of traffic flow, since removal of a self regulating roundabout and installation of more traffic lights. Consequence: the ... [ more ]

Trick or Treat

Michael A in Kesgrave
It's a pity that the parents of children (or children themselves) don't clear up the mess they leave behind on the street after trick or treating on Grange Farm. Just shows how social standards are dropping.

What do you mean in America? Next door to us on Grange Farm we had a "corpse" hanging out of the upstairs window, a "skeleton" in the downstairs window and much, much more.
Speaking of litter and diversifying its also a pity that many of the beach fishermen in FELIXSTOWE find it necessary to leave their mess behind, it's not just the odd one, they are not even children, what is wrong with these disgusting and selfish people?

Fly tipping

Silvergran in Playford
Does anyone know the person who dumped empty paint tins in the rural area of Dobbs Lane, thus spoiling this area.  Maybe the person would like it if we dumped our rubbish near his house.

The disposal of paint is very difficult. The advice in Suffolk seems to be : Emulsion, small amounts let it dry in the sun/ absorb in sand etc and dispose of Oil paints, varnish etc etc, buy what you need and no more? use it all by painting any surfaces ... [ more ]

Did anyone else hear the fireworks in the Dobbs Lane area at 1.00 am this morning set off by idiots, waking everyone up? 
View 5 earlier replies
I don't mind private firework parties if they are well organised.  What I object to is fireworks going off in the early hours of the morning by idiots who more than likely are returning from clubs/pubs and think it's funny to wake the neighbourhood up.
Christine S
I am getting fed up with being woken up with fireworks going off late at night. Fireworks should only be sold For organised displays. But the problem is people will always find away getting their hands on them.😬
