Redwood Appeal for Ipswich Arboretum

The Friends of Christchurch Park have launched an appeal to give Ipswich Arboretum its very own ‘mini’ Redwood Grove.  The Giant Redwood is the largest species of tree on earth and the Coast Redwoods the tallest so the choice of tree is spectacular.

Ipswich Arboretum was laid out in 1851 and opened to the public (the first to do so) in 1855 so the choice of venue cannot be bettered.  Given the Cobbold family’s long association with Ipswich in general and Christchurch Park in particular The Cobbold Family History Trust is delighted to be one of the first to sponsor a magnificent Redwood to the tune of £200.  If any family member would like to contribute please get in touch.

Thank you………

So much information is being offered to the trust and so many questions are being asked of it that we have a serious problem keeping up.  Firstly, apologies if replies have not been received as quickly as you would have liked and secondly it has become impossible to publicly thank information donors in detail so we show below the names of this month’s donors with apologies if any names have been inadvertently omitted:

Neville Cobbold
Prim Cobbold
Mike Cavanagh
Lesley Steinitz
Debbie Barnes
Adrian Howlett
Henry Spence
Virginia van de Lande
Phil Spencer
John Mansell
Mark Norris

Thank you all.
