This week has been quite varied, starting with a birthday party for one of our Labour Councillors, the event was held at the excellent Reg Driver Centre in Christchurch Park.
Monday saw a number of us back campaigning in Holywells Ward, Ipswich. A number of residents commented that it was the first time they had ever had a councillor knock on their door let alone ask for their views.
I managed to also fill in some sport spectating, but the football was ruined by the inability of the current Ipswich team to actually play football and Essex cricket was cut short by heavy rain at Colchester.
The rain may have stopped the cricket but, even with slightly damp feet the Ipswich Beer Festival did go on! Fortunately the weather improved by the weekend for the remainder of the Beer Festival and the excellent Ipswich Maritime festival. Lets hope this becomes an annual event in the Ipswich events calender.
