A Catalogue of Dedicated Benches

Whilst wandering around Christchurch Park in Ipswich, Suffolk I noticed that around 2/3rds of the wooden benches were inscribed as a memorial to some one or an event - so I have decided to photograph and catalogue them- and perhaps find out a bit more about the people and history of Ipswich along the way!

Around the Bandstand

There are 3 benches around the bandstand including the newest one in the park - it has just recently been installed - you can see how new it looks compared to another.

It is for Olive Fayers who loved to be 97 (1917 -2014) and has the lovely inscription ' Had A Wonderful Life'

the next bench is for another Olive - this time Olive Cook , who also lived to a ripe old age of 96 and was a great grandmother to 27!! Her bench reads 'she loved this park all her life'

The final bench here is for Trevor Dowe (1943-2010) and has the touching inscription 'Forever in our Hearts'
