It is a place to get information out to the locals. With proms coming up soon I don't blame them putting something on here. It is a local business and it is good to support local businesses. It will help parents too by being local and saving them money. ... [ more ]

I agree Sarah, we all look for our best buys, to be able to go along and view a selection is brilliant. I know a couple of people who have bought from them, and they have been thrilled with quality and choice.

I elected to get my daily news feed from in and around Ipswich, yet. There were only 4 feeds today. Does anyone know how someone decides what we get and why I only got 4 conversations before, when even the one in which I am participating, wasn't there?

Is it done through the council? Looking at what is at the bottom of the page I see that one can contact Streetlife about all sorts of things..... Think I'll do that now and ask what is happening to our news feeds. Watch this space.

Doing this on my phone...not easy. I can only say that perhaps we should all read the stuff on the contacts page and see if we can fix things. I can't see how I can fix mine till we get back to the UK and I can use the proper computer. Sorry.

I would recommend the Norbridge on Norwich Road. It's just before the bridge on the left hand side coming from town. They have a huge events room with a stage and the bar is really cheap. I used to go there for band rehearsal while they were open.

I can only say that, in my experience, the Gtech is more effective than the corded vacuums, including the dyson. I have quite a big house, and a cat, and it is the only vacuum I use now, as it does not give me backache.
