New Dedicated Clinics Established to Provide Earwax Removal

Every year in the UK, approximately 2.3m people experience problems with earwax and need to have it removed.

The Hearing Care Centre, based locally at Framfield Medical Centre in Woodbridge, and Wickham Market Medical Centre in Wickham Market, will be offering both ear syringing and micro-Suction techniques from mid-July. The private ear care clinics will be…

Ipswich Ravens Volleyball

The seasonal weather and illness caused last month’s indoor six-a-side competition at Northgate School to be scaled down, there was no Division 2 competition and just six teams entered Division 1 including Ravens men. They were able to continue their policy of providing opportunities to their junior boys to compete at adult level, with two under-15s in the team, and once again they were very pleased with the outcome. They finished second in the initial pool phase with a good win and a narrow defeat against the two Ipswich teams. This…
