Geek Retreat Ipswich

Dear Ipswich, I hope you are having a great week.

I have had the pleasure of working in Ipswich for the past 2 years and absolutely love the community.

What I have seen is there is more good than bad. So many people who really care about our town. There are small business owners who give everything to create a special place for those who look beyond headlines and actually see our town for what it is.

As a Canadian – I love the history – wow, it’s an old town! There are so many incredible buildings and locations when you take the time to look.

Our shop has seen what people in the community mean to each other. How supportive the local charities are of people in our town.

We see all ages from 4 days old to 97, all cultures and backgrounds who all come together to just spend time together.

We have been part of big and small events and all we see in happiness.

I love Ipswich and really hope this helps people see and be proud of what really goes on in our town every day.

Our parks are amazing: a family could spend several days in Christchurch Park and still not experience all it has to offer, and all free!
