For the love of trying the bigger jumps at the track - Ipswich.love

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

I just want you to know how special you are to me and all the things I love to do.

I love looking out of the window to see the park opposite my house. I like to watch the cars drive past. The bin men are always so nice to me and wave when they come on my road.

I really love the swimming pool that has the slide and the wave machine.

I love my school.

I love to ride my bike at all the parks but mostly the one with the cool BMX track, I am a bit scared of it, but I like to keep having a try. I love the big park in town too, I enjoy feeding the squirrels they are the friendliest at that park, sometimes they take food from your hand. They have really tasty ice cream and the new playground is very fun.

I also love that Ipswich has lots of Eiffel towers, while France only has one. (Editor: Reggie’s a big fan of the pylons – and we completely agree, they’re definitely as good as the Eiffel Tower!)

I really do love you Ipswich and I am lucky to call you home.

Lots of Love from Reggie GG
