A WARM WOOL TOWNS WELCOME
A tourism partnership that captures the unique history of five towns and villages in West Suffolk has been launched. The Wool Towns Association aims to showcase the combined attractions of Clare, Hadleigh, Lavenham, Long Melford and Sudbury – and neighbouring areas - with ambitious plans to rival destinations like the Cotswolds. Endorsed by business and community leaders in each of the areas, project chiefs hope that a united front will add to the tourism package and boost visitor numbers. David Martin, Treasurer of the Wool Towns and chairman of the Long Melford Business Association, explained: “The Wool Towns unites these areas with both a proud sense of heritage and dynamic forwardthinking approach.
