The iconic Willis building in Ipswich town centre was bathed in red light on Friday evening, to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary.

On Friday staff celebrated the occasion with a gathering and light switch-on, ahead of the 40th anniversary this week.

The building, which in 1991 became Grade I listed, is due to be lit again tomorrow evening in the same red light.

Vicki Chapman from Willis, said: “We had a celebration on Friday, and we chose red because ruby red is celebrated with 40th anniversary celebrations.

“The evening seemed to go really well, and I think it’s nice that the building still holds its own in the town centre.”
