This time of year sees many of Suffolk’s local communities come together to celebrate the festive season, and over the past few weeks it has been an enormous pleasure for Dan to visit some of the Christmas bazaars and fairs across Suffolk.

Despite the cost of tickets from Ipswich, reliability and speed of service have not improved over the years....
