Community Bulk Oil Buying Scheme

If you are one of 50,000 households in Suffolk which is off the mains gas network, Community Action Suffolk (CAS) could be saving you money on your heating bill.

CAS runs a community buying scheme which has purchased over 1.6 million litres of oil in the last year, giving households an average annual saving of £74 and higher volume users, such as community groups and rural businesses, a saving of £181.

Shops gone by – Woolworths

Woolworths Bury St Edmunds opened in Cornhill on 23 June 1928, Bury’s Woolworths was extended in 1937 and 1964 but seems to have avoided any downsizing over its 80-year lifetime, finally pulling the shutters down on 27 December 2008. The former Woolworths store in Bury St Edmunds has managed to remain at the retail heart of this lovely historic town after closing.
