I WRITE with regard to the proposed hotel development at the site of the old Horse and Groom pub on the A505.
What a great idea. The pub has obviously been closed for a while now, but when it was open it wasn't exactly somewhere that anyone of a discerning nature would have wanted to frequent.
A small, good value hotel just outside our town for business people on route to Cambridge or Norwich, or for occasional visitors to the area is surely a blessing.
I know from experience that there is certainly a lack of reasonably priced accommodation in the area having recently started to plan a big party to celebrate a big birthday party (age withheld), with friends and family travelling from different parts of the country needing somewhere to stay locally.
You may also want to watch:
Having to spread them about in different hotels & B&B's makes organising everything time consuming and complicated, to say the least.
A new hotel would obviously bring more jobs to the area, attract more business for the town, and, of course, generate some tax revenue, so I really can't see why there would be any objections from the local community or our trusted local councillors.
