Local MP welcomes Christmas in Framlingham

After a busy day in the constituency, Dr Dan was back in Framlingham on Friday evening to officially kick off the town's Christmas celebrations by switching on the Christmas lights.

Framlingham Business Association co-ordinated a series of Christmas activities, starting on Friday 30th November with the Christmas lights switch-on and a special late night shopping evening in the town.
