Diary dates announcement
Members will know, or will have guessed, that most of The Ipswich Society’s 60th birthday activities have had to be cancelled or postponed. This includes the exhibition celebrating 500 years since The Field of The Cloth of Gold and our Garden Party in July. All of the summer outings have been cancelled with the exception of the Ipswich Society / Ipswich Maritime Trust trip on the Sailing Barge Victor which is in abeyance.
Heritage Open Days
Sadly, the Ipswich Society will not be participating in Heritage Open Days in September, although some individual venues may open independently. Our decision is in line with most other civic societies. We still hope to stage our Annual Awards Evening in November.
However, we have continued to receive entries in our photographic competition (now closed). Judging will take place in the near future and the foyer of the university is booked for October where we still hope to be able to stage the exhibition.
