Can you phone ahead as you would for any other take away? Meredith Road chippy usually good, and frying new potatoes now. Had some yesterday, yum yum !!
Why don't you start one ?
A couple of series ago, or maybe three, I think it was either the quarter or semi finals of Strictly Come Dancing, I posted a comment on Streetlife on the remaining dancers and who my money was on to win, thought it might generates a little light banter ... [ more ]
Re your first reply Tony O, at 11.15, you seem to miss the point, not what I had in mind. If you guys want to discuss political matters then find an online forum or start one up! I think you also miss the point regarding strictly, it wasn't meant to ... [ more ]
Well if the EU referendum isn't related to local community then I don't know what is really, after all, the outcome will affect us all, and some local discussion might even encourage a better turn out at the polling station. But what do I know, probably ... [ more ]
Citizen of Ipswich, wider issues you ask, exactly the whole topic of this entire conversation, not always things related to the locality.
You carry on Watchful.
Lighten up Kiwi C and Barbara C. Towns need events that bring people out and together, bet there was no violence, people just having a day out. Charlie L is right and traders have to pay for their stall space so that generates a bit of money. Music in ... [ more ]
Thanks Jean, and while I'm on my high horse will just add, it's not only people from Ipswich who go to the event, folk come from all over, so that as well must generate income for the town. Shopping in town beforehand and having food at local eateries ... [ more ]
Print off your emails so you have paper proof of correspondence!
Hope you all have a great day.
All your friend has to do is contact her insurers and put your name on her insurance. Most companies don't charge for this now. I've got two named drivers on my insurance as well as myself but it does only cover them third party.
I would make sure to check whether named drivers have the same cover a as the insured person!
In the 1950s during the time of the polio outbreak it was used by Whitton Primary School, the big rooms downstairs being used as classrooms. Not sure if this was for quarantine purposes or because the baby boom following the war meant the school wasn't ... [ more ]
Thank you very much Sandie, I'll pass this information on.
Do hope you find her.
I'm very pleased for you all, especially Jess.
Jess is a lovely dog, so glad it was a happy ending.
Is your comment meant to be ironic Rossi because they're still there !!
What a lovely space to have, kids love studying bugs, I assume it's in the school grounds.
Why do you have to go out every day for coffee? Is it too far to walk, cycle, bus ?
Yes watchful, in the bays across from the entrance along the side wall of the Sense shop!
Not at all Watchful, I could see where you were coming from when I re-read my post. Didn't intend to sound so bombastic, but when I replied to you post I hadn't seen yours and Maria S's exchanges so didn't even realise you meant the bays at the front.
I use Penny Lane Computers too and more than happy to recommend them.
Yes, they are call PC Wake Up and they are good
You're welcome !
Thanks for the link Not K, I've just spent a pleasant half hour or so browsing Kindrid Spirits. My gran lived in Robeck Road in the 50s, so when my we visited my brother, cousins ans I would go to the Lairs in the summer. What a shame Pipers Vale has ... [ more ]
I too would love to see the pictures !
Thank you Frank B for sending the link for St Mary Badley. It sounds very lovely and well worth a visit.
Very interesting pictures Denise, I can see figures in two of them, one was very obvious as soon as I clicked on the picture. There seems to be what looks like numbers scratched on the window in the first picture, can you remember seeing them?
You may think this has been a prank, but don't be so sure Denise H !
I hope if it's a lost cat that it has found it's way home, but it's not unusual to see cats wandering in Meredith Road, people live there above the shops, and there are lots of houses very nearby.

You have to pay for advertising Tee P so the money contributes to the running of Streetlife just as it does for newspapers and magazines !
My GP surgery were pleased to take my magazines recently.
To save typing I have scanned and attached the first page of a book called 'The History of Ipswich, 1500 Years of triumph and Disaster' by Peter Bishop. It tells how the town was founded and possibly how it got it's name. The book goes on to give the ... [ more ]
Yes Cathy G., thank goodness there have been people around like Peter Bishop to research all this history and record it.
What a disappointing experience Watchful. I have been with the AA for many years, and on the 'thankfully' few occasions I've had to use them found them very quick to arrive on the scene. Maybe because they give priority to women travelling on their own ... [ more ]
When I was a child there used to be a market inside the Corn Exchange, what we now call the town hall. I can only vaguely remember it, I think it was like a lower ground floor and the entrance was from the side, possibly Lion Street. I can remember ... [ more ]
The market was still there in the 50s. Does anyone else remember it ?
Glad to hear it Citizen, I'm not terribly ancient either, I'm a late 1940's baby ! Great that you can remember the market, everyone else I asked couldn't, I was beginning to think I had dreamed it up. What's that part of the building used for now, do you ... [ more ]
Thanks, Citizen and OJM, I can remember the ceilings being very high, typical Victoian really, and all the fruit n veg on display. Of course, the Film Theatre, I hadn't thought about that, or the cafe.
Don't pay it, as above, treat it as an unsolicited invoice. And, certainly don't send them a copy of your bank statement, what a cheek ! The Aldi car park never was very big, but they reduced it to enlarge the store. Now half that shop there park in the ... [ more ]
Yes, but where it falls down Citizen is, you are clocked as you go in, but if you are unfortunate enough to have to wait in a queue for a space because it's so busy this counts as part of your time. Whereas in other car parks your time will start after ... [ more ]
Glad to hear it Sandie.
