For the love of saying hello -

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

Both my husband and I moved to Ipswich (from Hong Kong) for 2 years now. We really enjoyed staying here in Ipswich. First of all, the history and treasured buildings everywhere including the Town Centre, the WaterFront and the churches, the libraries, the statues and old buildings – this is very unique showing of heritage and town value.

Just a short drive around Ipswich, you can visit many lovely parks, beaches, gardens, protected forests, and green farmland. The people at Ipswich are so welcoming to both my husband and me. I have made friends with my salon hair stylist, the ladies who are at the retail shops and my favourite BonBon dessert shop in town centre. I walk around at Town Centre once a week just to say hello to everyone working at the shops at the Town Centre. I hope to see more optimism and cheeriness in this town.

Surely the football team Ipswich Town we are very proud of, we try to attend each game. Sports can bring everyone together! Let us all cheer and support the BLUE team!
