New barriers are to be put in place to stop people who are not customers parking at Notcutts garden centre in Woodbridge.

Centre manager Darren Brooks said: “We know it is often difficult to find a space in our car park due to an increase in people parking there for long periods of time, particularly commuters from Woodbridge station.

“We are now pleased to assure customers that the new barriers will make parking easier. We have notified local residents and businesses and would like to thank them for their co-operation whilst we make this change for the benefit of our customers.”

A proportion of parking spaces will also be shared with staff at the adjacent Framfield Medical Centre to ease their much-needed patient parking area.

Notcutts said it was responding to customer feedback by introducing the new car park barriers, to provide customers with a better parking experience

The car park barriers will be locked from 6pm on Monday to Saturday and from 5pm on Sunday when the garden centre is closed. The barriers will open during Notcutts’ trading hours, offering customers free parking throughout the day

The equivalent of 92 ambulance staff shifts were lost in January due to delays at A&E in Suffolk and north Essex, it has been revealed.

A man has been arrested following a single vehicle crash on the A14 at Nacton which left a vehicle on its roof.

MPs from across the region have met with ambulance bosses amid ongoing concerns over the crisis that hit the service during the festive period.

Markedly fewer people are smoking within the grounds of Ipswich and Colchester hospitals since vaping zones were introduced, bosses have said.

The Felixstowe Fairtrade Forum has come up with an unusual way of promoting events for the upcoming Fairtrade Fortnight.

“I must have been the only headteacher in the country going home every day praying that Ofsted would come in, because we knew we were good,” says Rick Tracey.

Four people have appeared in court charged with affray, following an alleged brawl at an Ipswich hotel.

A Felixstowe man brandished a pruning saw during a late night fight with neighbours at a block of flats in the town, a court has heard.
