It’s that time of the year to thank all Ipswich Society members who took part in volunteering on Thursdays between 3 May and 27 September 2018. This took place at St Peter’s by the Waterfront and involved meeting and greeting all visitors who came in to explore the venue, now home to the Ipswich Hospital Band. In all, a total of 2,343 visitors were noted – including those on Heritage Open Days. We now have a break until the first Thursday of May 2019 and I will be contacting all interested parties in March 2019 with a view to their signing up once more.
