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.
