M&S Simply Food Opening - press coverage
As you would expect, there has been lots of coverage of the opening of the new M&S Simply Food store at Martelsham Heath, creating 70 new jobs. Here are some links:
East Anglian Daily Times including picture gallery.
M&S slideshow of the opening and views inside the store.
The store Twitter account.
Even though it is a Simply Food store you can still choose it for Store Collection and get stuff delivered to it free.
Some folk are worried that this is another nail in the coffin for Ipswich town centre.

Inside Adastral: BT's Belgium-sized broadband boffinry base
Amusing and interesting report on Adastral Park by a reporter from The Register. Unusually it seems to get most of the facts right, even if it repeats some hyperbole!
Impact of EA One Windfarm on Martlesham
East Anglia Offshore Wind Limited's (EAOW) application for development consent for the East Anglia ONE Offshore Windfarm was accepted on 14 December 2012. Local residents may be unaware that the high voltage cables from the windfarm will pass close by St Mary's church and be buried under Martlesham Creek.
Planning map number 19 shows the path of the cable and the proposed 'consolidation works' on Sandy Lane.
