Why Not Shop Local?

Why Not Shop Local?

Littleport is the biggest village in England – by square miles! The population is hovering above 4,000 but with more houses being built, that number is on the increase. It may not be conventionally beautiful and wouldn’t have appeared on any of those old-fashioned chocolate boxes, but it is, as it always has been, a vibrant functioning traditional rural community. But with the burgeoning of out of town superstores, the shops and service providers in…
