Rhymes is good for younger kids, my son went there. My daughter is currently in the Nursery at Heath school which is excellent if your child is over 3

Our grandson of 18 months has been going to the Roundabout Nursery (behind the Kesgrave Church Hall).  He is doing extremely well there, and we/his parents would highly recommend it.

I was thinking about a zebra crossing it's a nightmare at times trying to cross in the Tesco M&s area you have to look 4 ways

Hi Eric, You CAN walk to Tescos at MH by using the cycleway. It starts behind the library and past the farmhouse pub and the old control tower. Lovely walk in good weather and you will never encounter a car just some people on bikes.

Same problem on Rushmere common, there are footpaths but no cycle paths and cyclists seem to regard walkers as the problem! Some of them go so fast they would have no chance of avoiding anyone or anything in their path!
Laurence H
I thought this was a Bridleway rather than a mere footpath so horses and cyclists are allowed on it.  That said he should have considered you and your dog but I do find that not all cyclists feel they should show regard to other road or path users.  ... [ more ]

Like the idea of a roundabout for Main Road/Bell Lane. The more traffic is kept moving - even if only slowly- the less pollution from idling stationary engines. I don't feel competent to comment on the other proposals as I don't live in Kesgrave.

The council are looking for ideas for the land being sold next to Tesco Metro.  Seems it would make a few good allotments.
