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.
Thanks all for your help I am going to check Meridith Road, a delivery van was spotted there.
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.

Angela W - this guy is clearly intimidating and threatening in nature and definitely needs reporting to the Police if he does this again to you. Sounds like he is out of control too as well as his dogs! Take your phone with you next time to the park ... [ more ]
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!
