Dr Dan Launches Rural Safer Driving Initiative SAVID

Dr Dan launched the Safer Village Driving (SAVID) scheme in Clopton with Cllr Tony Fryatt to promote better driving in our rural communities.

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