Hi the grill element in our electric cooker has stopped working. Can anyone recommend someone who does a good job and can come and repair it ? Thanks
For any kitchen appliance repairs I've always used Carey's. I've found them to be very reliable and they have always done the job with no messing about. 01473 233533
You could try Dick Williamson on 07769662545, mine went on my SMEG cooker and he repaired it, cost around £150, so u may want to consider your options.

Anyone who can recommend a reasonable taxi for family of 4 with lagguage
As stated on here a couple of times, NE do not run direct to Gatwick, but they run an excellent service to Stansted and Heathrow, and are a fraction of the price of JR. I don't think anyone has suggested NE for Gatwick!
Ok Alan just a comment from someone with a husband with a walking problem. Mars hasn't actually said what airport they are going to unless I missed it.

You could try advertising them for sale on the classified section of streetlife, then donate the money to the charity of your choice.
There is an Elizabeth hospice shop along Bramford Road that is good, if the stuff donated is not good for the shop it goes to the depot. I go there because I think the curtains will fit the windows if you donate locally!
Does anyone have any photographs of Ipswich Airport from 1938-1939? Any help really appreciated,thanks.
Fulcrum, runway 08/26 was 979m long, and 32/14, 710m long, which I believe too short for normal jet passenger aircraft. As an example, Southend is 1,856m, can take up to Boeing 757.
Bentwaters would have been fine for any aircraft in the world
