You live near a pub, it gets a bit noisy on Fri Sat evenings. It has always been the case Complaining about the noise is like living in the countryside and complaining about the sound of tractors or the smell of manure.
June B
A bit unfair David R. Think of all those pubs in Ipswich, sourrounded by homes. I use to live between two pubs. At o e e d, never heard a thing. At the other end, never heard a thing until it was given license for live bands and that was when the ... [ more ]

What a ridiculous situation where users are prevented from using a local authority system simply because they use an Apple computer rather than a PC.  Wake up SCC there are many operating systems and browsers out there.  If you require someone to use ... [ more ]

Has anyone eaten at Miller and Carter (what used to be the Shepherd and Dog)?  If so what is it like, ie is the food good and reasonably priced for what you get, ie is it value for money.  Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Cars not using lights

in Playford
I could not believe the amount of cars driving in thick fog this morning without any lights whatsoever.  Do these idiots realise it is dangerous not to put car lights on in this sort of weather?  Shame there weren't any police about to pull them up.

Some of you were kind enough to recommend people to do this for us, but they all ended in blind alleys! It seems that kitchen companies are quick to install wooden kitchen worktops, but it's proving difficult to get anyone to maintain them. We need a ... [ more ]

McColls Martlesham Heath

Amanda P

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.

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

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 ]
