THE IPSWICH SOCIETY  2022
SUMMER OUTINGS and EXCURSIONS.


  

                   

        Wednesday July 20th - ST. CLEMENTS CHURCH "DROP IN GARDEN PARTY" OPEN EVENING - 6pm to 8pm

 St. Clement's Church will be open for members to drop in at any time between 6pm and 8pm to see what has been going on inside the church since its conversion into an Arts Centre started.   There will also be plans displayed from the developers showing some of the big building projects going on around Ipswich today including the "Henley Gate" Northern Fringe development.

Work has just finished to install a new floor and re-plaster some of the walls that had fallen into disrepair. It is now available to be booked for events - but the lack of toilets is a stumbling block for many potential users.  Another £100,000 is needed to allow the installation of toilets to boost its potential.

There will be speeches at about 6pm with food and canapes by Val Bint and her team at about 7pm with wine and soft drinks.  Close at 8pm.

2022 HERITAGE OPEN DAYS - IPSWICH
Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th SEPTEMBER.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


After two years without Heritage Open Days in Ipswich The Ipswich Society is pleased to announce that we hope to be holding a Heritage Open Days weekend as normal again this year during the second weekend in September. 
 
The response from many of the potential venues has been positive so far and we are hoping that as time goes on most of the venues will agree to open again this year, maybe with certain restrictions in place at some of them.
 
We are on the look out for more venues to add to the list which have not been open before. 

More details to follow soon.
