A new publication from The Ipswich Society. 

Ipswich: a town to be proud of was published in March 2019. Ipswich gets a bad rap from some people, notably from those outside our county town who hardly ever come here. This free publication by The Ipswich Society is packed with excellent articles about all aspects of Ipswich life, as well as photographs and illustrations. It is available at Society events.
