Visited the Mansion and Ipswich Museum yesterday to hear about plans to acquire new funding to make significant investments in the offerings over the next couple of years. Significant opportunities for improvements particularly at the Museum where I believe there is greater capacity to tell the story of the Town particularly over the recent past. Would be good to have strong focus on all the different parts of the Town and communities and how they all came to be. There is a slight focus on this towards the end of the Museum exhibition but could be a lot more.
Would be interested to hear all your views. There is currently a public consultation ongoing regarding future plans.
Dropped by Northgate this morning to meet the Head and see all the preparations they’ve put in place for next Thursday when all pupils return. Many challenges to overcome but I’m optimistic for them next week. A very sensible and reasoned approach to reopening and I’m confident they’ve made the right calls on the key issues.
Couldn’t agree more. Now is the time that something should be done about the state of many of the roads and pavements in Chantry. Also time to put aside the blame game about who is responsible for the lack of action over a number of years, whether its the fault of the Labour County Councillors or the Conservative County Council the reality is that we are where we are and it isn’t good enough.
I will be out in Chantry most of tomorrow delivering the remainder of my transport survey envelopes and talking to residents.
