Volunteers' Rota at St Peter's

The Ipswich Hospital Band would like to thank all those volunteers from The Ipswich Society who manned St Peter's during the spring and summer months on Thursdays. Their help and dedication enabled the Centre to be opened for four days a week.

Numerous visitors have passed through the Centre since we opened in May 2008 from as far afield as Australia, Canada, Holland, France and Germany. Many favourable comments have been left in our visitors' book and the Ipswich Arts Association's Charter Hangings have been a big draw. The Heritage Weekend was particularly busy with over 70 cyclists calling in on the Saturday and the place humming with activity all the weekend.

During the winter period we are open every Wednesday from 10 am-3 pm with live music over the lunch period from members of the Band. The Centre is now being used six days a week for rehearsals, tuition and concerts. Further information can be found on our website or by phoning the Manager, Bernard Westren on 01473 225269, 01473438730 or the Centre mobile: 07717 398296.
