DO you know what is going on in your area?
A two-day community fair starting in Ipswich tomorrow answers a host of questions from jobs, to housing, crime busting, health, volunteering, leisure and training opportunities.
Family entertainment will be laid on throughout the two-days including storytelling, dance and live bands. On both days Evening Star cartoonist, Jock Davies, will put pen to paper at lunch-time to show visitor's views in cartoon form.
More than 70 exhibitors will be at the Corn Exchange to give information, advice and demonstrations about services, groups, societies and clubs in your area. There's also the chance to find out more about job opportunities and volunteer work.
Ipswich Mayor, Maureen Carrington-Brown, will open the fair, called Community 2002 – Taking Ipswich Forward, at 11 am. From 12.15 to 12.45pm storytellers, Sonali Choudhury and Gary Wynne, will take you on a verbal adventure with their tales aimed at children under eight years.
