The Cobbold Blue Plaque

Dedicating the Society's Blue Plaque to the memory of a great man, 8 April The previous Newsletter described Felix Thornley Cobbold (1841-1909) as "the town's greatest benefactor". It is appropriate that the Plaque should be on the Reg Driver Centre in Christchurch Park because there wouldn't be either Park or Mansion without Cobbold's gift. The photo shows L to R: Pat Grimwade and Tom Gondris (of our Society), Richard Wilson, (Chairman of The Friends of Christchurch Park), Anthony Cobbold (Keeper of the Cobbold Family Trust) and Jack Chapman, (Ipswich Society Chairman).
