Dog walker fined

Local Conversations in Ipswich Town Centre

Natalie S
A dog walker who failed to clean up dog mess has been fined £100 with £200 costs. Is this the right punishment? Do we need to issue more of these fines to encourage more responsible dog ownership? ... [ more ]
Honesty may hurt

Hi. Nice idea. What's your experience in football? Are you qualified? CRB checked? There are lots of football teams in Ipswich, how about helping one of them and gaining insight from the parents and kids involved?
Honesty may hurt
Hi. As Sticky-Beak says, why not volunteer to help out a local team, especially if you have experience, I am sure they would be grateful for the help. As for the 'money making' side, I don't see this being a full employment possibility, as all teams I ... [ more ]

Abit of water, really? It's also not a moan. I don't know if they do, but if all the pitches and fields use sprinklers during this type of weather it is a Huge amount of water being used along with everybody's increased intake.

Maybe it would have been a good idea to find out how they manage? Do they have hose pipe bans and get Told to be carefull with water as Fresh water levels are low? We Do, even Though it rains and rains again.
