Loddon and Chedgrave is continually adapting and evolving, particularly when it comes to the shops and services provided. With the recent success of the Loddon Farmers’ Market, and the even more recent achievements of Rosy Lee’s tea room, the area has a very active business heart.
Reflecting this is an interesting local experiment proposed by Melanie below, which asks for people to only shop in Loddon and Chedgrave as best they can for a month and feedback their experiences. With enough volunteers, the project should provide some insightful information about how complete the area’s services are and what steps can be made in the future.
