BBC and ITV feature Hall Street Hadleigh & the Chamber Sunday Trading Question
For those not regular followers of social media, particularly the various Hadleigh Facebook pages, you may have missed the activity of the past weekend which has led to local media giving good coverage of Hadleigh and its Chamber of Commerce.
What began as a question at the Business Breakfast Forum on the 19th May with East Anglian DT Business Editor Duncan Brodie, led to a positive spotlight on the town, great contributions from some of Hadleigh’s ambassadors and demonstrating to the wider audience in the county that Hadleigh has a commercial community with a progressive approach, and definitely contributing to “making Hadleigh bigger on the Suffolk Map”.
The debate on Hadleigh and Sunday Trading on the High St went on the airwaves Friday morning on BBC Radio Suffolk - listen again http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p051tjyq (interview approx 10 minutes into show and live broadcast from Hadleigh approx 70 minutes in)
