I agree that the council collects our money and then does what they think fit with it and so many of their schemes don't help us. They don't consult us the bill payers but then some would argue that's what we elect the councillors to do. Those ... [ more ]
Vote UKIP they promise to train the refuse disposal operatives ! Does it ever occur to you that you are lucky to have a drive?
Type "holidays for singles" or " solo travellers" into the Google search engine and pages of opportunities will be revealed.
If you want to backpack and travel alone but meet similar minded people on your travels then buy ( or borrow) a guide book which covers the countries you wish to travel in (Lonely planet have many titles covering all of Europe). Most travellers using ... [ more ]
Carphone Warehouse have a phone for free provided you buy a £20 top up. They also have other models from 99p. Check out their website, they also have shops in town. If a Streetlifer offers you a phone you'll more than likely still have to buy a SIM card ... [ more ]
Same phone as on Amazon at Carphone Warehouse is £9.99 http://www.carphonewarehouse.com/phones/nokia-108/ppay?colourCode=BLACK
Recommended, I have used the service several times in both directions. If you book far enough ahead there are tickets available for £15 one way but check the restrictions if you think you may need to change the times/dates. Bus goes via Colchester, ... [ more ]
They do also pick up (and drop off) at Ipswich rail station after leaving Cardinal Park but if you are booking on line and you put your start point as Ipswich station you may find the cheaper promotional fares are not available from there. No explanation ... [ more ]
Checking the web site for departures from Ipswich it says they leave at 12.00 and 14.00.( not the times you quote). They are usually on time, or there abouts,in my experience but of course it will depend on traffic or if there has been an accident en ... [ more ]
If you have power of attorney you can act on that persons behalf so if the existing account is in her name you can do it. Provided she is not currently tied into a contract the best approach is try to find out how much energy they used in the last 12 ... [ more ]
If it is a public road maintained by taxpayers contributions in front of your house and parking there causes no obstruction to your access then anybody and everybody with a legally taxed vehicle has a right to park there. What makes you think that you ... [ more ]
Not just residents but anyone can park anywhere in your street as they do in every other street in town. Have you never parked in a street in town in front someone else's house while you visit or shop? What do you do when you have visitors coming in two ... [ more ]
When you send emails they should arrive more or less instantly. If you say " when she got home she had my emails" then I suspect that she hasn't managed to connect to your WiFi network only getting them once she arrived within range of her home WiFi. ... [ more ]
The Ipswich Town FC coach and their loyal away supporters will be off to Blackpool on November 1st
Report him, Washing machine foul water should be directed into the normal enclosed sewerage system not an open water storm duct.
Come on .. since when has it ever been known as suicide bridge? Sadly if a person is in the mind to commit suicide they will do it one way or another whether the bridge is there or not. You only have to count the number of people who have gone in front ... [ more ]
@Tina D, the problem with signing is that it's clear from the majority of comments on here that we don't believe that nets or fences will decrease the numbers of people attempting suicide in the region so we don't want to be seen to be supporting such a ... [ more ]
@S H. You accuse others of being "uneducated and out of touch" the truth is that it is you who simply won't understand that putting nets or fences on the bridge will only reduce attempts at suicide from the bridge, not the numbers overall. The number of ... [ more ]
@S H. Throwing insults and flaming people with different views to yourself only makes your opinions seem less relevant and doesn't help your argument. You keep telling us to do "homework". You quote a source from Bristol, have you read it? It states the ... [ more ]
The report doesn't say he attempted to jump but just threatened to jump so we should assume that he went there to get some attention not to actually jump as he had plenty of chance to do so if that had been his intention.
Remember the subject of this thread is to ask people to support the installation of nets or fences using public money. @S H, We all have "done our homework" and we have come to the conclusion that safety nets and other forms of fencing have just driven ... [ more ]
Once again we must understand that IBC is an independent business and they sure wouldn't remove services if they were profitable or breaking even so we must believe that the service is under utilised. Also by admission the passengers are mainly those ... [ more ]
@Roz B. AFAIK The First bus Felixstowe services 76 and 77 pass the Transport museum and Ipswich buses 4 goes down Felixstowe road but would mean walking a few hundred yards.
Plenty of one way train fares from Liverpool Street to Ipswich for £9 if you are not bothered what time during the day you travel. You will probably be better booking a couple of weeks in advance but try any way on the Greater Anglia web site ... [ more ]
What we must understand is that Ipswich buses is run as a business and nobody continues in business if they make a loss. It is the old case of use it or lose it. As Mr Robson points out there is a way to continue the service if the council subsidises ... [ more ]
With the "bus wars" being run for the past couple of years between Ipswich Buses and First, how about approaching First to run a service on the No. 2 route when Ipswich buses withdraw. I think though, you will have to present a stronger case to them that ... [ more ]
I would rather have the gulls than some of the littering people I see around town who leave mess that the rain wont wash off ......... now where's that blunderbuss?
Bildeston Meadows at the Sportsfield, Consent Lane, Bildeston IP7 7SB
Are there any facilities on site, like toilets and showers?
Have you checked the fuse in the mains plug? and if that's OK have a look around inside the box to see if there is anything like a fuse that could be blown, If not .... There seems to be a load of them on eBay far cheaper than £60. I don't know if any ... [ more ]
Anne C, how I wish all cat owners thought like you, As I have the only garden in the neighbourhood with loose soil I am looking for a way to keep them OUT. Any recommendations please!!! It's amazing that it's against the law to let your dog foul outside ... [ more ]
Maybe Debbie but lots of us also like to have the birds in our garden and it's no coincidence that the more cats in the neighbourhood the fewer birds we have. If we as humans were to be shooting or killing birds in such numbers we'd be taken to court but ... [ more ]
@Teresa P, I only wished you lived in my road then I'd call you round with your latex gloves as you enjoy it so much. Cleaning up after ones own animals is OK but when you have to clean up for the whole neighbourhood of cats it gets very tedious I can ... [ more ]
Whatever pet we have whether it's a dog, goat, chickens, guinea pig, parrot or goldfish we have a social responsibility to keep that pet on our property and suitably cared for. With the above examples I think you'll agree that most people do. Why is it ... [ more ]
I do not hate cats per se but I do hate the exalted position they hold in some families and the way their behaviour is accepted and promoted by society. If I had a pet python in my garden and it laid in wait for it's fortnightly meal until the neighbours ... [ more ]
@Debbie C, you are not listening are you? I am not complaining about the number of cats in my area, only the number that come into my garden. The cat owners in my area are not elderly and if the owners love and want them I do not object but they should ... [ more ]
According to http://roadworks.org/ it should be finished July 3rd
The B & M store in the old PC World building (near Currys) falls under the jurisdiction of Babergh district council (not Ipswich B.C.) so clearly they have different rules. I.B.C. need to explain that if the conditions at Europark are that only ... [ more ]
It's been asked before ... maybe you missed this thread https://www.streetlife.com/conversation/2td4osak499t/
@Tim L, that "award" is 6 months ago and it's all a matter of opinion and whether you believe in the authenticity of such "awards". I'll repeat what I said at the time. All the hype about a "Top National Award" is in my opinion simply another means to ... [ more ]
I recently had an eye test and bought Spectacles from Specsavers in Ipswich and thought the eye test was more comprehensive than I'd ever had before and the glasses I bought (from their £85 range buy one get one free) were very good quality. The staff ... [ more ]
@ Pip. As and ex employee of a multitude of opticians you should know that if you take your current pair of glasses into the new optician they can deduce what your previous prescription was by checking out and analysing your lenses (provided they were ... [ more ]
@Stu, Yes the council will tell you that there is nowhere near the congestion that there used to be since they removed the roundabout and closed Back Hamlet. What they won't tell you is that they simply moved the congestion to the Grove Lane/Spring ... [ more ]
To add some fact to this discussion I have seen the the police follow and stop a car for driving in the bus lane in Star Lane. I have no idea whether they arrested him, I doubt it somehow but he may well have been fined. OK it's not Bishops Hill but ... [ more ]
Try Bonds Domestics, 7 Heath Road, Ipswich Tel 718007. They buy and sell second hand washing machines and they have to dump many that are not worth repairing. If you are prepared to collect it then I'm sure they'll have a choice for you.
