Dan is great supporter of our local businesses and often takes time out of his busy schedule to meet with local shop owners and staff when he’s back home in Suffolk. Last week, he visited Framlingham, where he met with local businessman Bill Bulstrode before walking round the market town to meet with store owners.
Amongst the small independent shops he visited were Leo’s Deli, Sarah Cole Jewellers and Hall Farm Butchers, which sells fresh, locally sourced and slaughtered Suffolk meat. Dan stopped to chat to the staff and to listen to their concerns, and he was delighted to see them all doing their bit for Comic Relief. In spite of the challenging economic climate, Framlingham’s businesses continue to thrive, thanks to the efforts of local people like Bill Bulstrode, who works tirelessly to bring the local community and its shops together.
Dan would like to thank Bill for taking the time to show him around the various stores and he very much looks forward to visiting Framlingham again soon.

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