Watch Battery Replacement

Lewis L
in Ipswich Town Centre
I have two watches that need new batteries.   I know about Timpsons and Debenhams and have seen market traders who offer the service.  Have any of you had good or bad experiences in Ipswich town centre?  Any recommendations?

I used the chap at the market on corn hill yesterday. Excellent service. He has all the gear and experience of over 20 years. £2.50 was well worth it
Margaret D
I go to Hinds and for the ten pounds you can get life time battery replacement for a particular watch, so you need a separate one for each watch.

There is really no need to go to the expense of hiring anyone if you are physically able to do it yourself. If it was an active nest it's a different story but wasps die off in late autumn.

Does anyone know where there is a Nisa shop in Ipswich which sells Heritage food. Their lasagne is really lovely, but now our Village shop has closed I cant find anywhere that stocks them now.

Not quite an answer to the question, but a friend visiting from  Clacton (coincidentally) tells me that a Lasagne I had bought at Ipswich Lidl was the best that she had ever tasted! SO if Nisa is to far too far away, that might be worth a visit.
