Rumours are flying about that the Co-oP Meredith road is closing down-- although the staff know nothing about it-- these rumours are even floating down to them-- anyone know anything?
I do hope it isn't, it's a well used store, but must say the freezers have only been half full for weeks and the shelves are looking a little empty !
Does anybody know if there is another garage in Ipswich that has the self service jet wash machines for cars? The two machines at the Asda petrol station on Bury Road have not been working for several weeks and I can't find out if/when they will be ... [ more ]
The guys at Meredith Road garage do a really good job at a very reasonable price.
Hello! Come and get your car cleaned today for a great cause. We have a charity car wash in our car park at The Dales - £4 for the exterior and £7 for the exterior and interior. Have a browse in the shop while your car is being made beautiful :-)
Emmaus 1, can I suggest you always post your events on Streelife in good time. It's no good doing it on the day,the information doesn't go out instantly like it does on facebook! The day and date too !
hi any body of a good cheep gardener
Well Richard G, why shouldn't £18 an hour be common ? For an eight hour day, five days a week over a 48 week year it works out at £34,560 which is just about an average wage. Take off that running a vehicle, tools and equipment etc. Why do folk under ... [ more ]
Of course, if you are working cash in hand for a bit of pin money a tenner an hour's not bad...................................
Just heard most of a fascinating programme with Steve Punt about the 'World Hum', that awful hum that some people hear, sometimes, but often at night. There are many theories about it ,ranging from the sound of fish calling to each other to high ... [ more ]
Perhaps the 'hum' is completely natural. It might be people only hear it at night when it's quiet, but it could be the noise our globe makes as it spins around. Maybe it was heard all the time in pre-historic days when earth's inhabitants didn't make ... [ more ]
Can anyone recommend a local company for getting old doors dipped to remove old paint?
They were call Orwell Pine on Wherstead Road when I used them a few years ago. They did a very good job. Collected and delivered back too !
If you wish to deposit soil or rubble you will be charged £2.00 for a bag up to 25kgs. I have weighed a bag today loaded with what I would be comfortable with and that came to 9.7kgs.To tip 25kgs I would need 3 bags that would cost me £6.00. I feel ... [ more ]
I hate having to take anything to the tip, and agree with Mr Mole regarding the terrible steps, I always feel as though I'm going to trip! The most helpful member of staff is an elderly man who will kindly take things up the steps for people, he ... [ more ]
I have an old 'portable' electric sewing machine. Basic straight stitch, nothing fancy but good machine. Have upgraded to a new machine and seems a pity to take the old one to the tip.
Don't take it to the tip Penny, if no one on here wants it donate it. There is a charity on Hadleigh Road Industrial Estate, can't think what they are called, but they will service it and find a good home for it. They service all sorts of things and ... [ more ]
Tools with a Mission, 2, Bailey Close, Hadleigh Road Industrial Estate. You can google them.
Beside the fact that I am on S/L Ipswich I also on belong to Northampton S/L--My daughter who lives in New Duston NN5 lost her internet/broadband--some thing that has not happened before--she phoned BT and was informed that there was a problem and it ... [ more ]
I have had a problem with my BT broadband during the last week. Go to log on only to be told I have no internet connection when all the lights on my hub are clearly on, which was puzzling, I haven't phoned for help though, I have just turned it all ... [ more ]
Are you interested in what is happening in Whitton, Whitehouse and Castle Hill? Its your chance to find out what the council, Police and other organisations are doing and what issues they are looking at. Tonight's meeting is being held at Whitton ... [ more ]
Whitton Baptist Church 7pm !! Well I got there for 7 and the place was in darkness and all locked up!! So thanks for that bit of inconvenience North West Area Committee. Citizen of Ipswich, it's all under one roof but just as well you didn't turn out!!
Just checked the NWAC facebook page, should have done that earlier, can see that the meeting is tomorrow (Thursday) at The Ipswich Community Church which is at the top of Burlington Road ! Does the left hand know what the right hand is doing? I won't ... [ more ]
Can I suggest that your administrator always includes the day and date in any post. As you might have learned your original post was a day late ! Streetlife isn't like facebook where the posts go out instantly, they usually take a day so it's best to ... [ more ]
Posted comments are, but no event I have ever posted has gone out til the next day, not that I bother these days as it all only seems to reach the same six people !!
You may well have heard about the upcoming changes in management at Castle Hill Community Centre. We can confirm that NW Ipswich Big Local Trust have been supporting this building to stay open and to continue to be available to the community. ... [ more ]
If you mean my Pop Up Watchful, then no, it won't be coming back!
Is there anyone out there who can decipher the attached autographed post card. It,s from 1938 and I want to know who it is. I've tried all possibilities I can think of but with no success.
If you don't have any luck put it on facebook if you can, more people will see it if you ask them to share.
I'm wondering if the last name cold be Blake or Blatt and the first name possibly beginning with an E. My mum used to do a similar capital E.
Ho ho, I reckon that must be it, it all seems to fit !
I've just received a demand for £70 for staying 25 minutes too long at Aldi in Meredith Road whilst shopping in the store. In case you don't know (and I didn't) the car park is run by Parking Eye and they photograph the numberplate of every vehicle as ... [ more ]
My granddaughter got a ticket at MacDonald's in Lincoln for being there 1 hr 50 mins. Yes, you could argue that it doesn't take that long to eat a burger, but two young women having a catch up! And, the photo sent with the letter shows the car park is ... [ more ]
I expect people park at Aldi and pop to other shops in Meredith Road once they've been to Aldi Graham D, but no one seems to spare a thought for those that want to use Meredith Rd shops and can't find a parking space because half of them on the road ... [ more ]
Can anyone throw any light on the rumour which is currently circulating that Aldi are planning to relocate to the.B&Q site when they close later this year ?
There are hard up people in Martlesham and Woodbridge Mass R, besides, the 'well heeled' as you call them are just as 'up' for a bargain as anyone else, probably more so, that's how they get 'well heeled'. There are usually plenty of up market cars in ... [ more ]
Totally agree with Citizen of Ipswich, and that bell, it's offensive, it really hurts my ears if I happen to be near that top right hand corner when it goes off. My daughter sometimes uses the Aldi on Felixstowe Road and says it's a much better ... [ more ]
I have a problem with my printer. Please can someone recommend a reputable computer engineer, who would come to my house to repair it. Thank you Christine
I have always found Penny Lane Computers on Dales Road to be very reliable and charge reasonable prices. If not, Wake Up PC on St Helen's Street are very good too.
Is it me or are the drivers on our ibc buses rude. Not even a thanks. Customer service at its worse sadly
I use the buses regularly, I'm always polite and thank the driver when I get off. On the whole I find the drivers to be helpful, and polite in responding to the thank yous from passengers getting off the bus. They must get fed up with saying 'thank ... [ more ]
Well a plain thank you is fine by me, or 'morning' or whatever, I would hate if the drivers started saying all that over the top American stuff like 'have a good day'. They are bus drivers after all! I can remember when buses had conductors, they did ... [ more ]
Happy new year to all on street life
Quite agree Sheila O, you took the words out of my mouth! A good debate is very healthy and helpful, but too many on streetlife just moan, but what is more irritating is that none seem prepared to do anything about the thing they are moaning about ! ... [ more ]
I work on Hadleigh Road Industrial Estate which is a one way system, but foolishly a certain company who will remain nameless takes a shortcut by driving the wrong way to gain quick entry to there company. This obviously is dangerous but they seem to ... [ more ]
It's up to you Jack D, as you work on the estate, to let us know if you notice an improvement in the situation !
I saw 4 police cars with blue lights going fast on Norwich rd this afternoon I've never seen 4 together in Ipswich.Anyone know what was going on?
Rushing to Asda, turkeys nearly sold out !
if you have any old treasured photographs which have faded lost their colour, or even damaged, then I can possibly help using my photographic software which can restore photos and back to their original quality. And can put them onto CD or even print ... [ more ]
How do you know what most people have these days Toby P, young or old !
Went to the Range this afternoon, took 40 minutes to get out of the car park. It's always been slow, but now it seems to have got really bad. I don't know who is responsible for the roads, Ipswich borough or Suffolk CC, but someone needs to find a way ... [ more ]
I was exiting Sainsburys Hadleigh Road this evening when to my surprise i spotted a young muntjac deer. It was in the bushes where the statue is on the left hand side by the traffic lights. It ran out onto the path but then ran back into the bushes. ... [ more ]
Worth it though eh Dave L !
If your going shopping at Asda, take cash with you as their card payment service is not working, is refusing to accept payment on all debit cards, causing long queues at the checkouts.
Panic over, I paid by card yesterday !
If supermarkets, especially Asda it seems, are such a chore to shop in why don't you start spending your money with small, local, independent traders, then you could all start moaning about what a chore it is having to wait in the queue to be served ... [ more ]
Precisely Richard G, so everyone stop moaning about lack of service and cramped aisles, how do you think you get 'cheap'?
I've always found Asda staff to be very helpful and friendly, they are some of the best.
Yes Watchfull. totally agree, just saying how great they are.
It looks like Broom Hill might once again be open to the public, i heard on the radio today that they have secured some serious funding. A spokes person for the project has said that if all goes well the pool could be reopened in about 2 years. This ... [ more ]
I can't wait for Broomhill to be open again!
Ipswich Buses do all sorts of offers on fares Jean A, wouldn't like to quote any prices in case I'm wrong, but there are family tickets and all day tickets etc.
There are plans to bring it into the 21st century Rossi, do you think funding would be agreed if the whole project wasn't financially viable. So many pessimistic people on this site !
I drove past the iconic Sir Bobby Robson Bridge today. What was once a beautiful elegant white structure is now covered with green slime and algae. What a terrible first impression that must give to visitors to our town. Surely the people in the ... [ more ]
It's along West End Road Ray L.
