John has completed 46 years working in Ipswich’s town parks.. Thank you John.
A lot of his time has been cutting the grass verges and flats on the Chantry estate, so everyone knows John in that area of the town. John lived within the Parks, first at Gippeswyk Park subsequently in Christchurch Park until his retirement. He was invited to tea with the Mayor & Mayoress at the Mayors parlour in recognition of his service. He will be continuing his park patrol role within the council.
