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!

Continuing the Circle Round the Pond

This brass plaque just reads - In Memory of Chris Stollery - is this the Chris Stollery mentioned in this article?

Another simple plaque on the bench next door - in Memory of Helen Watson. With no details of when she lived, it is difficult to find out any more information on her and why she has a bench there.

This last one is under a tree and is for Claire Fulcher (1983-2005) with the lovely wording of 'Live Your Dreams'. Obviously still remembered by her family as she passed away only aged 22.
