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 ]

I have passed this motorcycle and see no problems. It's legally parked and does not cause an obstruction. It's no-one else's business beyond these facts. It's entirely the owner's decision how and where to park the motorcycle as long as it's within the ... [ more ]

I pass this bike several times a day as I live on Blackdown Avenue.  It isn't a problem.  The problem on this road is the speeding drivers - hey the speed limit is 30 here and it's a windy road in places so slow down.

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 ]

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 ]

Ratty with Mole

Slimline T in Broom Hill
Hi  Streetlifers, I have a real problem with moles! They are undermining the path up to the front door, the garden edging, the borders, the lawn, in fact my entire surroundings. Does anyone know a reliable mole catcher and how much they charge. Thank you

Slimline T
Thank you all for taking the time to reply. Much appreciated. I am currently trying to catch them myself but don't hold out too much hope. If no success after the weekend I shall start calling your suggested mole catchers.

We have them in our garden, husband has been tracking them and has been known to stand over a new mound waiting with a big rock in his hand! Have tried traps, bombs etc.

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.

Fly tipping

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.

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.😬
