Dr Dan Poulter was delighted to visit a number of shops and businesses in the thriving market town of Debenham, where he met with a number of business owners and visitors to the town.
During the visit, Dr Dan enjoyed speaking with so many business owners and learning more about their individual successes and growth across many sectors. Debenham High Street seems to be going from strength to strength, with a number of new businesses popping up in the town.
Speaking about the visit, Dr Dan said "Debenham is clearly a flourishing centre for small businesses and you can't help but be absorbed by the strong sense of community and local identity which everyone is so proud of. The businesses offer a warm and friendly welcome to visitors, offering everything from locally smoked products to locally brewed beer, and hand-designed jewellery to bespoke kitchens. Small shops and businesses are the backbone of our rural economy here in Suffolk and I am sure that Debenham will continue to go from strength to strength if today's entrepreneurial spirit is anything to go by."
