Cats Protection will be helpful.  Try Ipswich Cats Protection or Framlingham & Saxmundham (I believe Trimley may well come within F & S post code area). Suffolk Animal Rescue is also very kind.  Sadly the RSPCA are wrapped up in a lot of red tape ... [ 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.

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 ]

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.😬

It might well be a problem with Windows 10 as various people I've spoken to say they are having difficulties. I know if I upgraded I'd have problems with my talk talk email address - yes apart from the recent hacking.
