The Wattisham-based regiment, which has the Freedom of the Borough of Ipswich, has recently returned from a one-year tour of duty in Afghanistan, where its Apache helicopters formed a vital part of the allied forces.
On Landguard Point is a major project, funded by Arts Council England as part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad, and was launched in front of Christchurch Mansion this morning. OLP is a project about "Home", and explores how we construct our diverse notions of home, what home means to each of us, and what it means to host others in our home.
A hoard of Iron Age coins found in a pot in a field in Suffolk is to go on display at Christchurch Mansion from tomorrow (22nd June 2011) until October.
