Dr Dan visits local shops in North-West Ipswich

Dr Dan with Councillor David Goldsmith outside the Crofts Bakery on Fircroft RoadDan always enjoy visiting our community groups, schools and businesses in Suffolk and last week he had the opportunity to meet some of our local shop owners when he visited Fircroft Road as part of his busy Friday constituency schedule. Dan spoke to staff and customers as he visited the local Co-operative pharmacy before going into the Croft’s Bakery and the Fircroft Post Office.

Whilst trading conditions have not been easy over the past few years, he was also encouraged to see a steady stream of local people supporting their independent stores. There has been much debate in Ipswich recently about the town’s future, prompted by the Ipswich Star’s excellent Beacon campaign and, as the former Marks and Spencers boss Sir Stuart Rose recently commented, although our county town isn’t perfect, residents in Ipswich will have an important role to play in helping to improve it in the years ahead. Supporting our small and medium-sized shops and businesses is one way of doing this. After all, they form the lifeblood of our economy in Suffolk by providing jobs for local people, driving economic growth and giving the town its unique identity.

Dan would like to thank local County Councillor David Goldsmith for accompanying him on his visit.
