Ipswich Entrepreneur in Chantry
Has anyone been? Kaspas Desserts on Upper Brook St. Not my thing, however, I went past at about 8.55am and was surprised to see ice cream. Is this yesterday's ice cream no one had bothered to dispose of (but would replace before opening) or do they ... [ more ]

My daughter tried to get in with her friend on a Saturday but people were queuing! My neighbour went and said the portions are so big they turned her stomach. I have a very sweet tooth so will enjoy a visit sometime for my dessert fix as a main meal! ... [ more ]
Julie A
I would go and enjoy the amount I wanted to eat as a special treat - it's certainly not something I would suggest as an every day part of anyone's diet. But it is a personal thing. And I can appreciate that everyone is entitled to their opinion!

Sad to say as a dog owner someone allowed their dog a massive dump in my gate entrance in Lacey Street

Graham H in Ipswich Town Centre
Sad to say this because we are dog owners and ALWAYS pick up if our dog poos. We came down to discover a massive amount of dog poo in the gate entrance with flies buzzing around ... Who would do this?
Julie A
Sorry to hear this. We live the other end of town and a night-time dog walker lets his dog run in out of the gardens (and into the road) and it leaves a parcel on our front grass every night. I look after my neighbour's dogs and love them to bits, and ... [ more ]
Julie A
Agree with you there Carole! Feel so sorry for the dog though, being encouraged to run in the road and putting itself and others in danger. Hopefully we can get a positive outcome to this foul situation.

Sounds like a wonderful event. I love everything Royal but am disappointed, but also amused, to say that I am just too young to celebrate with you! I'm sure you'll have a very memorable time!

Plumber

Julie A
Our plumber, Nick, is thorough and reasonably priced. Cannot recommend him highly enough, 07599462299. We don't know his surname as he was recommended by family (who also didn't know his last name!), but he has his own local business!

Brickwork, Norwich Road area

Julie A
in Westbourne
Looking for a recommendation to have our garage door replaced with brickwork, a window and a door. Anyone got any suggestions? Thanking you in anticipation!
Julie A
We're not converting it - still using it as a garage just with a different frontage. Do you think this will require building regs as well?

Julie A
Morning Susan! Yes, Sarah does Monday evenings 7.30-8.30pm at Bramford school, and the same time at Bramford Road Methodist Church, Ipswich, on a Thursday evening. I've been to lots of Zumba classes in the past few years, and this is definitely the ... [ more ]

I saw a post by Ipswich Borough Council on facebook. Don't know if/where else it was advertised. For some reason, we didn't all sing "Happy Birthday" but the rest of the service was very special. Sorry if you missed it.

We have had various parties in the hall over the years, and my son has done many children's discos there, so it's a shame the new management are not keen on letting out this amazing facility any more for local children's parties :(

Good to hear they have decided to allow children's parties to continue there :)

Just a thought, but in case you are interested, once a year there are a few solicitors who give their time free to support St Elizabeth Hospice, and offer to do Wills for a suggested donation to the Hospice. This is usually cheaper than going to them ... [ more ]

Have a look at St Elizabeth Hospice link "What Will you leave?" There's a list of the solicitors there. You have to register your interest and the ball starts rolling in February :)
