Terry Hunt spent nearly 40 years working for the EADT and Ipswich Star newspapers, with two decades as Editor of the EADTm making him the longest-serving regional daily newspaper editor in the country.
During Terry’s time as editor, the EADT launched many campaigns aimed at improving life for the communities of Suffolk and north Essex. These have included fighting for much-needed road and rail improvements, battling for faster broadband in rural areas, and working with partners to improve educational standards in Suffolk.
The EADT’s Maths Challenge, which helped thousands of school pupils to improve their maths, won a world-wide award from the International News Media Association, presented in New York, in 2013.
He retired in September 2017. In 2011,Terry was made an Honorary Fellow of the University of Suffolk and, in 2015, he was President of the Suffolk Agricultural Association, organisers of the Suffolk Show. He is now chair of Ipswich Vision, is a Deputy Lieutenant for Suffolk and is on the boards of three local charities as well as West Suffolk College.
Terry will talk about the role the media has in galvanising the local community, including business. Yes, the media can help business! He will also give his opinion on the sayings “newspapers are only interested in bad news” and “you can’t believe what you read in the papers.”
Terry will also discuss the Vision for a Ipswich, and why a strong county town is essential for Suffolk - including businesses.
We hope you can be with us.

The Copper Kettle Café Tearoom is shortly celebrating its fourth birthday. This quaint café tearoom is set in the Maltings of Kersey Mill, a notable historic icon set in an area of natural beauty. Kersey Mill has so much to offer with its retail/business outlets, hair & beauty, wedding venue, holistic therapies, palates/gym.
The Copper Kettle is at the heart of Kersey Mill offering a wide selection of refreshments, homemade cakes, (their signature scones are to die for) breakfast, lunch and afternoon teas serving the local community, visitors, cyclists and walkers. They are passionate about what they do and take great pride in everything they have to offer. Coffee is freshly ground and made by their barista-trained front-of-house team. They have a lovely selection of loose leaf teas served in individual teapots with tea cosies to keep it nice and hot and pretty china cups!
As Rosie, the owner, is Irish, the tea menu had to include Barry’s Tea, blended in Cork, Ireland where she was born and raised. Another speciality tea served is Tragothnan, the only tea grown in England. Retail teas are sold so you can take home your favourite blend. Vintage style afternoon tea is a highlight and has become extremely popular whether celebrating an occasion or simply enjoying a treat.
Everything is homemade to order, even the jam! Booking is essential. Two courses, savoury/sweet are served on vintage bone china and lace tablecloths complete with individual pots of quality loose leaf tea makes this a very special experience. Gentle vintage music plays soothingly in the background.
The Copper Kettle offers an enjoyable stop-off for those working in the area, a pleasant retreat for visitors to Suffolk, a venue to celebrate special occasions, or a meeting place for family and friends.
The Copper Kettle is laying on a special buffet breakfast for us.
