Anyone else around the Stowmarket, Bury way?

Hi Moola. I'm in Hadleigh, nr Ipswich.

MarmaladeSun - I'm near Hadleigh. A shop there used to sell my cards, before it closed down!!

Hi Dior. To be honest I don't know a lot of the shops in town (there aren't that many to start with lol) as we've only been here since Feb. Love the name BTW!

Thanks! It used to be called 'Gifted Arts and Crafts', and was a gallery too. Closed down last month though. Shame, because it was a lovely shop. I'm surprised that it didn't get much trade, because of Byrites, which must draw a crowd?

What do you think of the area?

Hi Dior. Um, I quite like the area to be honest. It's nice to have the best of all worlds really...countryside, towns not far away and the coast so near too. I try not to get too attached to anywhere though as we're forces and liable to get moved any time . Only 4 years to go though and we can settle down for good . Where are you?

Colchester. It is a real army town. Is your dh based there? (Colchester I mean)

Hadleigh is a beautiful village, although I do find it a bit of a trek from Colchester, through a really windy road. Handy for Sudbury though, which is also lovely. We looked at buying one of the new houses near Byrite last year, but then our monetary situation worsened. I could have been your neighbour

Dior...DH is based at Wattisham, about 7ish miles from Hadleigh. I love Colchester, although the traffic has been a bit of a nightmare every time I've been there. I went to the Mind,body,spirit exhibition in Colly a few weeks ago. Our quarter is in one of the new houses near Buyright...not the bottom estate but the top one, within walking distance though!

Is your DH forces Dior?

spacedonkey Sat 11-Dec-04 13:23:59

Hadleigh's lovely!

I used to live in Colchester.

No, my dh is not in the forces. It's weird, because although Colchester is an Army town, I don't see much of the soldiers around. Sometimes you know when they're off on manoeuvres, because you see all their trucks going along a road, but that's it.

Glad you like Colchester. It's not a bad town really, although I do moan about some of the people who live here, and the lack of decent restaurants (pre-ds of course, now I'm happy if I get to go to Pizza Hut!)
