Dan was recently delighted to visit Creeting St Mary CEVAP School. He always enjoys the opportunity to visit our local schools in Suffolk, and to see at first hand all the hard work that the staff and pupils put in.

He looks forward to visiting again soon.

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