September 2020

It is 125 years ago this year that Christchurch Mansion was given to the people of Ipswich by Felix Thornley Cobbold (1841-1909) #201 on the web family tree.  Over the years the Friends of Christchurch Park have done much to enhance the Park for people’s enjoyment and, being a lively and highly active group, it will do still more in the future.  I was privileged to be invited to speak at the anniversary AGM but sadly under pandemic rules the AGM was cancelled so I provided a little article instead which we reproduce for you here.  Somehow, I was persuaded to answer Ten Questions.  To my dismay, as I am not much good at self-publicity, these were recorded on the back page of the newsletter, Anthony.
