Central Suffolk and North Ipswich is a large and diverse constituency which contains both the northern parts of Suffolk's county town Ipswich as well as some of the most rural parts of Suffolk.

North Ipswich supports a large a proportion of the town's light industry and out of town shopping facilities as well as enjoying a strong sense of community focussed around local sports clubs such as Whitton United Football Club.

Kesgrave, Bramford, Rushmere St Andrew, Claydon and Great Blakenham are all towns close to Ipswich, but each proudly maintains its own identity.

Much of the rest of Central Suffolk and North Ipswich is very rural with a strong agricultural base and great pride in a thriving food and drink industry. A pleasant countryside and a peaceful rural environment have attracted many retired people to villages and towns like Wickham Market, Framlingham, Debenham, Eye and Stradbroke. Tourists flock to the area in large numbers, drawn in by attractions such as Framlingham Castle, by the beauty of the Suffolk countryside, the many lovely churches, and the unspoilt landscape.

Gentleman may have to...
