Fruit

In the 1960’s a group of fruit growers got together to form Mid-Suffolk Growers Ltd, providing   cold-storage units  in Mill Street for  fruit grown in the the Stowmarekt district. 

In 1979 the parish council had to deal with complaints about lorries parking outside the Mill Street premises and therefore blocking the flow of traffic. Police had had to be called and the road surface had had to be repaired.  The company must have been successful as it was having new buildings and extensions to existing  premises and was packing vegetables and fruit.

A planning application, which was approved, would  make it possible for ‘all vehicles visiting the premises to park off the road and with 2 entrances and exits it was hoped that traffic complaints should cease. {Telstar 66: Nov 1979}
