Local community groups, volunteers and businesses form the lifeblood of our local communities in Suffolk, and it was a pleasure for Dan to visit Eye recently for its ‘Eye’s Wide Open’ day, which brings together a range of groups to showcase the very best of the town. Dan popped into see Steven Harmer at the English and Continental Antiques store, which was running an antiques roadshow-style event by offering to do valuations for any items brought in the town centre on the day. He also had a chance to see some of the activities taking place inside the Town Hall, before heading over to Laurels Farm Butchers. Most of the food at the Laurels Farm Butchers is sourced from local farmers, including the pork which comes from pigs reared in nearby Athelington.
Dan believes it is important to support our local farmers, businesses and community groups in Suffolk, and the Eye’s Wide Open event showed Eye town at its very best. He would like to thank the outgoing Eye Town Mayor Felix Williams for his service and commitment to the town over recent years and wish his successor every success in the new role.
