Local MP shops local in Framlingham

Dr Dan Poulter was delighted to visit a number of shops and businesses in the thriving market town of Framlingham, where he met with a number of business owners and visitors to the town.

During the visit, Dr Dan enjoyed learning more about their individual successes and growth across the different sectors. Framlingham High Street remains buoyant, with a number of new businesses popping up in the town.

Speaking about the visit, Dr Dan said "Framlingham 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 produced food and drink, and hand-designed jewellery to country clothing and local crafts. Small shops and businesses are the backbone of our rural economy here in Suffolk and I am sure that Framingham will continue to go from strength to strength if today's entrepreneurial spirit is anything to go by."

One of the challenges she raised is that of those patients with fluctuating...
