That's what I thought at the time of your posting but did not like to say so in case I caused offence, although it may well be true one should aire on the side of caution, we can only keep our ears and eyes open,---- and wait and see.

Wouldn't it be great if we did have an underground railway though...I think we'd all be aware of it if it had been real at one time.

Hi, with whats been said in the news recently about the advantages of eating 7 - 10 pieces of fruit and veg a day and it's proven health benefits, is any body worried about the cost of this and the time and planning involved?

ulster avenue/ new houses

So the people in power now want to build new homes at the back of ulster avenue shops!!! This has to be a joke what a stupid place to start building, new homes that will be hidden from view of the main road !!!

Houses need to be built, if there is room there why not. I've lived in a flat over shops don't see anything odd about views from a home being shops.
Jean G
nature gal yes houses have to be built, and there's nothing wrong in living in a flat on top of shops, but if you know ulster avenue as I do the little road behind  those shops where they want to build those houses  is not very suitable and as I said you ... more »

we had two tuesday night, no idea why, havent heard anything, just one side of shenstone drive
Alex G
Might it have been during the sudden but short storm during the early hours? I did not have a power cut, but my phone reacted to the lightning, and it might well be that a short surge  tripped some network safety trips.

Teachers...!

What do these teachers think they are doing, messing with our children?  Get back to work and get on with teaching our children.  Teaching in Suffolk is the worst in England.

I am a retired teacher, and a parent and a grandparent so I can see more than one side to this, but I agree with every word that watchfull has just said. I paid into the teachers pension for 31 years and ended up with less than 40% of my former pay. ... more »

Many years ago, teaching was a wonderful job. Everyone felt teachers knew what they were doing and all seemed happy to let teachers get on with the job. Good teachers enjoyed what they did and the kids they taught came out of school well educated.  Then ... more »
