No need to drop buzzwords like "Brexit", it has been fact checked that on average farmers make more money by subsidy than agriculture and this isn't safe in the future as the EU subsidy is likely to disappear. It is highly unlikely that the government ... [ more ]

Does anyone know where there is a Nisa shop in Ipswich which sells Heritage food. Their lasagne is really lovely, but now our Village shop has closed I cant find anywhere that stocks them now.

Not quite an answer to the question, but a friend visiting from  Clacton (coincidentally) tells me that a Lasagne I had bought at Ipswich Lidl was the best that she had ever tasted! SO if Nisa is to far too far away, that might be worth a visit.

Oh and if you say the Police didn't take you seriously when you reported him in the past, ring them and tell them you 'think' he's either got (a) a knife or (b) a gun, they'll be there in a flash and can deal with this b'stard once and for all!
