Streetlife have closed our NBP debate down which is their policy to do so after six mouths-- and I think we ought to thank Streetlife for allowing us to run for that length of time-- should we keep this continuation going at least until we get the ... [ more ]
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 --
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 --

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

It seems very unprofessional. I don't see it as "acceptable" however not unlawful. Both parties have an equal legal argument. They must consider your health and safety, but at the same time you are legally responsible for your own H&S to a ... [ more ]
As with all H&S your first duty is to yourself! Did you consider this was dangerous, why did you have to get into the back of the lorry? Did you use a tailgate?

Thank you for getting back to me Eddie M . I'm sorry to say that I was unable to make the class this week. Let's hope next week holds out better for me.
