To be fair, it isn't a democracy in enterprise. Businesses will go where they think the money is. You could petition for IKEA etc. to come to Ipswich but unless they see a business case they won't.  Sad to say, looking at the area from an outsider ... [ more ]

Black & White Cat

Brian P in Westerfield
A gentleman just knocked on my door to see if we owned a black and white cat which he had just found dead in the valley road. We didn't and don't know who does but if it's yours you know why it hasn't come home.
What a kind & considerate gentleman, taking the time to try and find out who the cat belonged to. I hope if I ever lose a much loved pet I don't get the news from you Brian P
