The MP does get paid, not bad putting his scribble on a letter typed up by someone else, his line graph signature is very amusing. In my view, the position holder of Central Suffolk should lose "North Ipswich" and the Ipswich MP should be ... [ more ]
Ipswich Entrepreneur on the point you have made I could not agree with you more -- but the MP for NW Ipswich do not seem to care any way -- never mind at the next election we may be able to change all that --
Hello. Does anyone know the situation regarding the asbestos roofing at the St. John's Scout/Cub hut in Britannia Road? My grandson is attending as a cub but there are signs saying "Danger" and referring to the fact that the roof is made of asbestos. ... [ more ]
Asbestos is around everywhere (it was only fully banned in 1999), you don't see warning notices. In order for such signs it must be damaged or a potential risk. I was paranoid with Asbestos when I moved into my town centre offices years ago - got ... [ more ]
Ipswich Entrepreneur All true of course. We'll see what transpires. Thanks.
People on Streetlife often denigrate Ipswich or areas of Ipswich for being run-down, with boarded-up shops, and so on. I am currently reading 'Thunderbolt Kid', a Bill Bryson account of his childhood in Iowa, and came across this passage: "...most ... [ more ]

I went to B&Q Saturday afternoon they are either getting ready to shut the doors or doing some refurbishment just about all the kitchen displays have been sold some of the shelves are almost bear
That settles that little problem. B & Q stays open and Home Base has been taken over. Can we move on now?.
Who cares whose running who or who has closed?? Go on the internet and buy your bargains on there.
Does anyone fancy the idea of starting up a Death Cafe? It's where people can go and chat about all things death related and anything else too, but primarily death and dying. I feel that we don't talk about death and dying enough in this country, ... [ more ]
I would have come along, but I work and that time isn't good for me. In the one our group ran last year, a lot of the talk turned towards people planning their own funerals so as to save relatives confusion in a time of grief. Worth being aware that ... [ more ]
That's really good to know. Thank you. If this doesn't work, the 2pm slot, I may try a different one, but I guess it'd not be in a cafe then but in a pub. Ah, that may be preferable to some. ;0)
Rumours are flying about that the Co-oP Meredith road is closing down-- although the staff know nothing about it-- these rumours are even floating down to them-- anyone know anything?
Quite right Ipswich Entrepreneur that's why I said in an earlier post 'keep an eye on that one'
As you say Ipswich Entrepreneur the TUPE is in place so the Coop employees should be alright -- I certainly hope so -- some have got a lot of service in --
My beech carver needs a new arm. Can anyone recommend a joiner/carpenter with such experience, please?

Thankyou that's good to know.
The verges in Ashcroft Lane were cut yesterday - Tuesday 13 September for the first time this year. Perhaps someone at whatever Council is responsible for this lane read our comments about it being overgrown and in need to attention.
I think that its disputed as to which Council is responsible for Ashcroft Lane. I don't know which Council arranged the cutting of Ashcroft Lane last week but in previous years it had been an Ipswich Borough Council's employee who cut it
Jean A - One of the confusions of the two-Council system! I believe that grass/hedge cutting is the responsibility of Suffolk CC, but IBC carries it out on their behalf in Ipswich. So you could reasonably contact (or complain to) either or both of them.
A load of signs in the windows of the new Poundland said closing 21 september. I did not go in to find out if it was for the day or for good. Anyone know?
Who said exactly opposite
I hope it not the were bus are cause good and handed the one is out to going in carr street
With reference to the bus route 14, I’m very sad to note that the Saturday time table has been reduced to 3 buses per day. This means that should I need to go into town after 2pm for whatever reason I will have to get a cab or struggle up the hill to ... [ more ]

The ipswich star has gone to 75pence now it a lot of money now it is much in
I buy the ipswich star sometime but look at few days ago it is get better now also alot of different things and more in it to find the wild pigs still going soon be gone more wild pigs
The Star works on the principle of 'never mind the quality of the prose look at the size of the pictures'
Suffolk County Council, what are you playing at? https://www.architectsjournal.co.uk/news/architects-slam-totally-illogical-ipswich-bridge-contest/10... Not a great start, is it?
I notice the Star still haven't mentioned this at all while running a story about IBC reconsidering the Cornhill plans due to feedback from the public. Meanwhile SCC ignores feedback from an expert body.
Jo many a word spoken in jest come true
