The Next 17 years - 1985 - 2002

IPSWICH & SUFFOLK CLUB HISTORY UPDATE 1985+ (Author HAROLD PAGE February 2002)

In 1985, we celebrated 100 years of the Ipswich & Suffolk Club. Part of the celebration was the publication of a small volume giving a light-hearted history of the preceding years. The other celebration was a Grand Dinner held in a large marquee in the rear car park for the members honoured by the Lord Lieutenant of the County and our own Archdeacon Canon Charles Hooper, one of the best after dinner speakers I have heard.

Some seventeen years later it was proposed that the history be updated and I was pleased to accept the challenge.
