So here we are, well past the last date for comments via the normal planning route and a letter arrives from my PM suggesting I write to Mid Suffolk District Council. To what end? Is it election time? It is obviously good for the PM to say things ... [ more ]

I still sent another email, this time to the planning manager as per the letter from Dan Poulter. It can't do any harm, at least it shows the council we are still determined to stop the planning application going through.

Number of news feeds.

Local Conversations in Ipswich Town Centre

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?
7 earlier replies
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 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.
