A fun day is being held in a notorious Ipswich neighbourhood to bring the community together and break down negative perceptions.

The Jubilee Park roadshow has been organised by Cad Taylor at Ipswich Community Media and will take place tomorrow from 10.30am to 3.30pm.

There will be sports, art, music, workshops and information stalls.

Jubilee Park is a deprived area of the town based between Handford Road and Bramford Road, near the Westgate Ward Social Club, which has been plagued by violent crime as well as gang and drug activity.

Ms Taylor said: “The aim of the day is to unite communities, bring awareness of organisations and support groups, promote cohesion and community networks and provide a more positive overview of this diverse neighbourhood. It is also a great way to connect directly with the communities and consult on project ideas and local plans.”
