This might not look like the year we all expected but there are still plenty of ways to have fun, stay safe and support our local attractions this autumn. Today I am going to be sharing with you some socially distanced activities that you can do right here in Ipswich that will help support our town and allow you to have a safe time whilst still getting out of the house!
Visit and Support Ipswich Museums
Like many other historical attractions both Ipswich Museum and Christchurch Mansion are free to visit but currently require booked tickets in order to limit the amount of people visiting at one time. It is so important to support these local attractions so make sure to give them a visit! The Mansion is still currently home to the Ed Sheeran Made in Suffolk exhibit which has been extended and is now open until November so make sure to give that a visit too.
Got to a Farmers' Market
This Saturday (17th October 2020), there is a Food and Artisan Market at Trinity Park, Ipswich, home of the Suffolk Show, offering a range of the best producers from our region together under one roof. Visit https://www.trinityparkevents.co.uk/events-diary/suffolk-farmers-market/ for more.
Relax with a book and hot drink
Get cosy with a blanket, your favourite book and a sweet treat. Snuggle down outside if it's warm enough and enjoy some time on your own just relaxing.
We are very lucky in Ipswich to have lots of wonderful open spaces that are perfect to visit throughout the year but are especially wonderful in the autumn sunshine for picnicking or meeting a friend from a social distance!
Support local and independent businesses
More than ever it is so important to look after the local shops and cafes that we have, and a lot of businesses have opened in the town centre with extensive measures in place to ensure both their safety and the safety of their customers! Make sure to pop into the smaller shops the next time you are in town as we are so lucky to have so many brilliant independent businesses right in our town centre!
Let us know any ideas we missed off our list and make sure to send us your socially distanced autumn activities!
