For the love of town life - Ipswich.love

Dear Ipswich, I trust you are well.

I moved to Ipswich just over three years ago from The Midlands. Moving from a big city was an adjustment but I wouldn’t change that decision for anything.

Ipswich has many things to be proud of in my eyes: historic buildings, spacious green parks, a stunning Marina and a good amount of independent businesses, we have a diverse mix of people here and that should be celebrated, as well as all this we have stunning coast and countryside right on our doorstep and I believe Ipswich, Suffolk’s County Town should be praised a lot more and that needs to start with us!.
