Therese Coffey cut the ribbon at Lilac Thyme – a flower shop in the old tourist information centre at Woodbridge station – run by town mayor Patti Mulcahy.

The opening coincided with the launch of a new initiative encouraging people to spend in local independent stores ahead of Christmas.

Dr Coffey said: “I am delighted to be backing Small Business Saturday by opening Lilac Thyme, a fantastic new business. Patti used to work for me in my constituency office so I am very proud that she has started her own business.”

Ms Mulcahy added: “I am delighted that Therese has agreed to officially open my new venture. The unit at the station has been empty for nearly a year so I am pleased that I have been able to bring it back into use. I hope Woodbridge residents will support my business this weekend and in the future.”

  • She backs independant Traders ?, now if she had the courage to ask a question at PM Question Time about reducing Business Rates for small business, I would say she is backing them, but like her question on the A14........shy's away !!

  • The problem with MPs is that you give them a safe seat and you are stuck with them, whatever the result of an election.
