I don't know if its just me but I am finding the service here appalling. I have spoken to the manager there but they are restricted by head office. I have sent a message to head office with the normal response but if others were to complain I wonder ... [ more ]

Hi Victoria, Been working so only had the chance to nip into little Tesco last night, but all the tags on the tree were gone! Did you still need help or has all gifts been provided for? If so, is there any other help I could give? Beth x

Samantha, I think you are getting confused with horse manure?  Dog poo etc. is a health hazard. There might be a reason why people do not mix dog poo with compost in their garden... after all who would pay for horse manure if you had a dog...

Nightingale glade

Anyone know why there are 3 areas (approx 25/30m square) that have been cleared and the top layer pushed to one side? Are there plans in the pipeline to build on the site?

McColls Martlesham Heath

Amanda P in Maidensgrave
Absolutely disgusted that McColls in the square has been broken into twice in the last 10 days! Even more shocked and appalled that the broken glass door has still not been repaired. Come on McColls treat your staff with respect! 😡😳

I expect it hasn't been repaired as it may be being upgraded as far as security is concerned. The biggest issue is that local councils rarely give permission , if ever for roller shutters , which would stop it ever happening again.
Naomi E
My understanding from the staff in mccolls is that alcohol was stolen, not cash. They do need to get the door fixed though and update security. Really shocked something like this has happened so close to home.

Central Heating Engineer

Charlie R in Martlesham Heath
It's winter and that's when the heating packs up ! Does anyone have the name of a reliable central heating engineer ? Upstairs heating is ok but downstairs seems to have given up the ghost (it's not the thermostat, I have replaced that !).

Eagle Way/Orwell Bridge

John B in Martlesham Heath
Presumably those responsible for closing the Orwell Bridge for half a day are the same individuals who left traffic lights operating in Eagle Way over the weekend with no obstacle other than the actual traffic lights.

I came over the bridge late on Monday just before the bridge was closed and felt the wind but not enough to move the car. As Ipswich does not have a plan if the Orwell Bridge is closed we are at the mercy of the Highways Agency and their over caution ... [ more ]
