A trip down memory lane here - do you remember any of these old Ipswich stores? http://www.ipswichstar.co.uk/news/do_you_remember_footmans_edwards_or_martin_newby_could_modern_reta...
"Possibly why they shut down!" Although there are such stores in other places still surviving, Fram DIY in Framlingham for one.
Lots of independent ladies clothes shops, Ashley Russell in the Buttermarket, Irene's, Paige's, Jax where MacDonalds is now, Leman's where Monsoon is now, and one at major's Corner whose name escapes me.
Shoppers were evacuated from M&S this morning after Carbon Monoxide was found in the building. More here http://www.ipswichstar.co.uk/news/carbon_monoxide_leak_at_marks_spencer_in_westgate_street_ipswich_1...
Thank you for that. Saves me having to continue wondering why the store was closed when I went to town, and kicking myself for not asking about it when I went home and found everything back to normal.

As well as the usual delays caused by the slow progress of the roadworks up by the Euro Park, I was further delayed yesterday by temporary traffic lights on Henley Rd, Bramford Rd and at the junction of Nacton and Landseer Rds. None of these delays were ... [ more ]
We all know that the SCC cant do without their little red lights, stick all them thar lights on the Cornhill that would brighten the place up.
Hi everyone, Just to let you know, we've had some information from our highways technician about the signs. Our information is sourced from other departments within the council as well as from the internet, media and our own traffic information. ... [ more ]
I drove into Bramford Rd yesterday morning at 09.30. The traffic was awful, unknown to me there had been a bad accident on the A14. I got to the board on the Bramford/Chevallier crossroads, and instead of the board saying, Accident on the A14, town ... [ more ]
I agree Charles W. The same on the left turn from London Rd into Yarmouth Rd. But then there's lots of examples of daft road layouts across the town.

Is it just me that witnesses this whenever I'm at the norwich road ashcroft road traffic lights. Nearly ever time cars comjng down norwich road heading to town will jump this set of lights. I personally think the settings are wrong at these lights as ... [ more ]
Mark B Actually if you were turning from Ashcroft into Norwich Rd, you would realise that only about 4 vehicles have time to make it, traffic jumping the lights along Norwich Rd compound the issue, especially if they do not make it across the junction, ... [ more ]
Simply answer and cost saving too. Remove all traffic lights and put give way signs and markings in place. It works when the lights fail. Case in point. Kesgrave are trailing no lights on the round about. Hoping for positive results from that trial .

Tony - panels flex too much and are only held in generally by about 1cm of concrete on both sides . You can get galvanised brackets that hold the panels much more securely . If your posts are wooden then similarly can be resolved with better fixings .
Fence panel destroyed. There's always one!

We've got a magnolia tree in our front garden that needs pruning, we need a few suggestions for tree surgeons, ideally people who know their trees, not just someone with a saw and a ladder.
That's where I live.
The big problem with a Magnolia tree is that it really doe's fight back. we prune ours every couple of years and it fights with a vengeance but it is healthy and produces lovely flowers sometimes twice a year.

Anyone out there with ME? A friend of mine has chronic pain & is unable to lead a normal daily life. Do some sufferes have good days & could my friend get any benefits?
