Paul Geater

In case you’ve missed my columns of the last few weeks, I’m in favour of the changes that are currently under way at the Cornhill in Ipswich – and I feel many of the critics are misinformed and should have raised their objections years ago.

I make no apology for the fact that I am delighted to see work has finally started on refurbishing the Cornhill in Ipswich – and I reckon the market looks great in its new home at the top of Princes Street.

This is the season of council tax-setting – and this year it is starting to look very different across the country.

I always try to be as reasonable as possible when dealing with officialdom and those who make decisions that affect our lives.

The New Year may still be very new, but already there’s been a great deal happening in local government in Suffolk – and I suspect this could be a crucial year for several councils in the county.

This week’s 3.4% rise in rail fares has prompted an understandable outcry from passengers – especially from commuters who have to use the train to get to work.

Twelve months ago I used my final column of the year to say Good Riddance to 2016 – the most miserable political year of my lifetime.

Ipswich received some fantastic news this week when the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded the full amount asked – £3.4m – to restore Broomhill Pool.
