Shops & Facilities

The village is fortunate to have a good range of basic shops and a post-office, that beween them provide for most day-to-day needs.   There is also a primary school.  [The nearest garage selling petrol is at Shotley (at the entrance to the village coming from Chelmondiston) or the Shell garage on the Wherstead Road / Strand intersection if after 17:00.  The nearest specialist pharmacy (excepting that attached to the doctors' surgery) is on the Wherstead Road/Rapier Street intersection on the approach to Ipswich from the peninsula.]
