Response to Mr Holdcroft

 

Image result for I love ipswich

I was born and raised in Ipswich am proud of my home town and have had the honour to serve as Mayor of Ipswich

While councillor Holdcroft has apologised for apparently referring to Ipswich as a “cesspit” in a public meeting I just wanted to say how very wrong he is.
Even us Ipswich people are quick to criticize our town and yes I may be biased I still know we are not perfect but there is a lot to be proud of.
Our parks and open spaces, I was at an event at Christchurch Mansion with people from various art organisations from across the country and they where amazed at the wonderful gem that is Christchurch Park right on the doorstep of the town centre

A rich history and heritage with fantastic award winning  buildings and medieval churches some updated for modern use like Quay Place.

A great arts scene with the incredible pulse festivals and programmes from New Wolsey, The Regent, Eastern Angles and Red Rose Chain as well as many local artists and musicians with everything from Harmonica players to Hip Hop, jazz funk to classical. I’ve watched a full orchestra and a visting DJ from New York in the same week
We are a vibrant and diverse town and this diversity has contributed to the feel of the town, with coffee shops and restaurants a taste of the world on your door step.

I’ve seen the many people who are also passionate about this town and work and volunteer tirelessly to help their neighbour’s and make our town a place to be proud off

Consultation on the cuts Suffolk County Council propose in funding to local Citizens Advice (CAB)

Suffolk County Council are conducting a consultation process on their proposal to implement a 50% reduction in funding to Citizens Advice in Suffolk for 2019/20 and an end to this funding from 2020/21.

 

Ipswich Citizens Advice provides a vital lifeline of help and support for some of our more vulnerable residents and this service is needed more now than ever

 

The justification is complete false economy and it’s an appalling choice that will lead to a black hole in provision

My Tree

Image may contain: one or more people, tree, grass, outdoor and nature

It used to be a longstanding tradition that an Ipswich Mayor would plant a new tree to mark their year in office

This was originally done in “Mayor’s Walk” Christchurch Park and looks to provide a permanent record (or for a few hundred years at least) of the town’s first citizen though the years.

In recent years the tradition was changed and the tree is now planted within the ward of the councillor who was Mayor. 

A few weeks ago I got to continue that tradition and planted a tree in Whitehouse. 

As it’s an oak tree I hope it will be still standing long after I’m gone and also like the seeds of a mighty oak I hope the work I’m doing will grow and have a lasting impact on my community long after I’m gone
