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.
For a special event always post the day before the day before ! Sadly didn't see this until today (Sunday). Streetlife isn't quite as instantaneous as facebook.
I was a bit of a 'beatnik' when I was 15. Thick black stockings, like everyone wears now, were considered quite outrageous for some reason. I went to Ipswich Art School for a while and then to William and Pretty in the design room. We used to dance on ... [ more ]
In the end I didn't pursue a career in design Val, but the skills I learned have stayed with me and I have been able to apply them to the things I enjoy doing.
We went out to Wyvale Garden centre in Woodbridge last year, Can't remember the cost but it included tea (Sandwich, cake and drinks). Gifts were very age appropriate and good quality, we had a lovely time even though my grandson was overcome, when Santa ... [ more ]
Great news, saves a lot of time having to take tetra packs and aerosols etc to the dump where the staff ares not particularly helpful these days ! Thanks Paul R
James A, I would think that books placed in a recycle bin would be recycled ! I would only put books in the recycle bin if they were really fit for nothing else. So please continue to take them to charity shops. As for glass, I agree that IBC need to ... [ more ]
That's not my experience of supermaket glass bins ! Yes a lot of people still put all sorts in their black bins and they should be ashamed!
It's not the country Sophia H, it seems to vary from county to county. Yeah, and all that stuff went into landfill Reg S !!
The option to hide all from some streetlife contributors has just been activated Reg S., I can't cope with all the 'clever' responses
Perhaps arrange to meet up for walks to begin with, your little dog might feel less anxious if the other dogs owner is with it.
Well keep it on a lead the next time you go out it might give you some time !

Shame this was posted so late. One thing I have learned about streetlife, post a few days before to make sure it goes out in time !! It's not instant like facebook.
Suffolk Animal Rescue is another animal charity in Ipswich, they foster and re-home cats and dogs. www.suffolkanimalrescue.org/about-us
If you do end up needing professional help get in touch with Penny Lane Computers on Dales Road. Their prices are very very good even if they come out, and the boys very helpful and don't talk to you in jargon.
I'm always very wary of installing updates, they never seem to go as smoothly as we are led to believe they will!
Wacky Warehouse on Cardinal Park Snakes and Ladders, can't remember name of the road, have to google !
Check out your local community centre or sports centre, they often have things going on for little ones.

Could someone please tell me, is Colchester Farmers Market a monthly or weekly event?
Thank you for this information mrxtian.
Perhaps they are actually meant to stay in pairs, does anyone know? Police officers are usually in pairs whether on foot or in cars. PCSO's are usually walking the streets in pairs too !
Precisely Alex G, just what I was hinting at !
It was the easy option for famous business guru to criticise the town centre, but he wasn't so free with any forthcoming advice or ideas was he. You might think that having the university would attract interest from companies or who are looking for ... [ more ]
I don't think traffic lights would be enough to put people off coming into town if there was more to see and do. Also car park charges are extortionate in this town compared to places like Felixstowe, Woodbridge, and not sure but in Hadleigh, think you ... [ more ]
Phones 4 U Mark O, well no wonder they are going bankrupt !

Thank you Karen.
Thanks for letting us know, it avoids disappointment. My young grandson loves Bourne Park.

I don't understand what having no tax or insurance has to do with the police not being able to do anything, surely they should still do something? I thought the scooters were not supposed to exceed walking pace in pedestrian areas ? The rider should face ... [ more ]
Diceman, there are those who use them just because they are lazy. I know of one man who regularly uses his father's to go to the shops. The father's need is genuine!
I agree with the argument FOR a northern by-pass. You're doing well so far Watchful, the support is building, it's only been three days. I reckon by the end of the week you could have the 100 posts you're looking for!
My thoughts too thediceman. And Watchful, just keep replying to the posts to keep yourself in circulation, it seems to me that each time you do you get a couple more posts! 36 in a week, not bad, more than a third to your 100.
Just Google 38 Degrees petition site Jo G, you will find help there.
