School transport at SCC to be looked at again.

The planned consultation on the future of free school transport in Suffolk, which should have started on Monday, has been postponed. Suffolk County Council’s Scrutiny Committee decided today 28/9/17 to refer the matter back to the council’s Cabinet after members expressed concerns about whether the pre-consultation for it had been adequate. It will now go back to Cabinet in October.



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.
