Photos showing old Ipswich families and scenes from the past have been shared on our Ipswich Remembers Facebook group.

The page, launched a few weeks ago as a celebration of our history, has been attracting attention from all over the world with ex-pats keen to revive memories of old Ipswich.

Member Paul Thompson said: “Thanks for letting me join, it’s great seeing these old pictures and reading about people’s old memories of them.”

Shaun Bennett is currently appealing for help.

“Anyone here worked at Phillips and Pipers or have any photos please? Asking for my parents who both worked there, Margaret and Anthony, or Tony, Bennett. Thanks in advance.”

He explained his father worked there from the 1960s until the time they closed.

“He was the head of the department on the ground floor, the exit out of the building was at the back next to the garage. He worked there.”

Suffolk police have renewed their appeal for information by releasing a video showing Mr Wyard at the Royal George pub in Ipswich.

The family of Clive Wyard have described him as “a man who helped everyone he could and wanted nothing in return.”

A new service station with drive-through restaurants and a coffee shop could soon be built on a former motocross track off the A14 at Sproughton.

Police want to identify the man pictured in connection with an alleged assault at an Ipswich electronics shop.

Frontline ambulance staff spent the equivalent of half a year waiting to handover patients to A&E at our hospitals.

The first direct route from London Stansted to the southern Norwegian city of Kristiansand have just launched.
