Tripp Batt Customer Announcement

 Tripp Batt have decided to re-locate most of the Stanton business to their outlet at Marlows Home and Garden Centre in Bury St. Edmunds. Tripp Batt Garden Machinery will be entirely based there, with a large portion of non-machinery products being sold within the newly refurbished Marlows store.

At Tripp Batt we have become the area’s leading dealer for the most popular brands of garden machinery such as Hayter, Mountfield and Stihl. The new larger showroom at Marlows will be supported by a modern workshop facility for the repair of all makes of machines. A number of our staff with valuable machinery experience will remain with the Tripp Batt team.

The last day of trading at Stanton will be on Friday 15th December. We would like to take the opportunity to thank all our local customers for their continued support. Like Tripp Batt, Marlows are an established local independent business and we look forward to welcoming you at our exciting new location.

Stanton Pharmacy

- Stanton (Formerly Stanton and Hopton) Doctors have submitted an application to open a pharmacy at 10 The Chase, the consultation letter from NHS can be viewed here. There is also an appendix of information from the Doctors together with the application form. There is some concern as to how this will affect patients from other doctors filling prescriptions if patients are residents within 1.6 kilometres (1 mile) of 10 the Chase.

Policy 14 from Vision 2031 St Edmundsbury Plan shows no further development in Stanton during the plan period.

We have been asked to state that the restrictions apply to dispensing Doctors but they do not apply to existing pharmacies.
