Ipswich remembers

This week the people of Ipswich remembered the fallen

From the service at Ipswich war Cemetery, involving Primary School children from  Ipswich to the showing of the play, The Wipers Times' at the New Wolsey to the Sunday service at the Ipswich Cenotaph - where we saw one of the biggest crowds in years.

Ipswich Labour delivers on its promise

Over the last few years local Ipswich Tories have attempted to scare local residents by claiming that the Labour run council was planning to build houses on the Ransomes Sports Ground.

Myself and fellow  Labour councillor Sandra Gage campaigned hard to get a new sports pavilion built on the site and the Labour council promised that they would build the new facility. Now we have a superb community pavilion, and our local football club have started to use the facility.

Next summer it will also be used by the local cricket club – we also have a new bowls club up and running and work is about to start on a new car park. Ipswich Labour has delivered on its promise.

Ransomes  Sports FC commented

 “The new facilities at Ransomes provide us with some of the most up-to-date in the county and our grateful thanks go to all concerned – Alasdair Ross has been instrumental in getting the new pavilion built and a special mention of gratitude to him from all at Ransomes Sports FC”.

John Lewis to save the day??

Trump and Brexit in one year - We now pin all our hopes on it being a great John Lewis Christmas advert!

(Could have added a second Corbyn victory but that pales into insignificance with Trump and Brexit)
