    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ben Gummer & Conservative Manifesto by Ipswi.

      Former Conservative Ipswich MP and current Tory candidate for Ipswich, Ben Gummer, Cabinet Minister, was tasked with writing the Conservative Party Manifesto. As you would expect for a 2-times MP and prospective candidate for a third term, Ben is an advocate for Ipswich (in particular for the Ipswich Waterfront).

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ipswich Waterfront by Ipswi.

      Ipswich Waterfront: Time to pull the plug? For many the Ipswich Waterfront is a 21st century project but digging into the history a little, the project is over 30 years old with early steps in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and despite being the sole tourism focus for Ipswich town we have very little to show for it. Ever since the Star Lane gyratory was built, alternative uses for the Wet Dock were sought. This included early developments of re…

A proposed Wet Dock Crossing will allow further re-modelling of the gyratory so as to link the Waterfront and Saints Quarters better by foot. New development on the existing Ar…

      Cult Cafe bar and The Brewery Tap to close? Ipswich Star had recently reported that The Brewery Tap is closing. See: The Brewery Tap closes.
