International artist Ken Farrow (http://farrowsfineart.com) has donated a beautiful oil painting of Framsden Mill (size approx 23 inches L by 20 inches W) to help raise funds for Broomhill Pool.
Ken is based in Australia now, but was Ipswich born & bred. Born at 284 Bramford Lane in 1934, educated at Springfield Junior, Northgate Grammar and Ipswich Civic College. Ken was an engineering apprentice, training at Reavell & Co and served his National Service in the R.N. as an E.R.A. on H.M.S. Superb at Suez.
Ken was described as "an artistic talent" at Northgate by none other than R. A. Campbell, RA.
Ken says "The fact that I learned to swim at Broomhill Pool makes the place very special to me and I'm sure thousands of others".
