Friars Street Dental Practice

26 Friars St, Sudbury CO10 2AA, UK – 01787 372401

I've been with the dental surgery for a few years and think it's a well run and organised professional practice. The staff are very friendly and I would highly recommend them to anyone .

I have been registered here for 16 years and recommended it to many people, all of whom joined the client list at the practice. Cannot speak more highly of the staff and dentists - Mr Waheed is extremely gentle and very thorough.

Perfect Smile

19 Prince St, Sudbury CO10 1JA, UK – 01787 882040

Thank you for seeing my husband as an emergency patient, he was extremely happy with the great care and filling that was done for him.

Having had a fear of dentists for years , I have to say this practice is wonderful, I had some extensive work done on two teeth both on private and Nhs , and very happy with the results. Would highly recommend them, if you want your teeth done properly.

The Croft Dental Practice, Sudbury, Suffolk

North House, The Croft, Sudbury CO10 1HW, UK – 01787 372605

After a very bad experience with another dental practice quite a few years ago I avoided regular check ups and treatment. Eventually I realised that I had to see a Dentist as I had two very painful teeth. I made an appointment with this practice and was treated by (Miranda ?) James. She found that I needed one large filling, one small one and one extraction. The large filling was done on the first appointment and the smaller one plus the extraction a week later. So, what were my impressions ? Firstly, the staff were courteous, pleasant and helpful. Ms James and her dental nurse were superb, very pleasant with a nice sense of humour. The treatment ? Fantastic, I can say, in all honesty, that I never felt a thing. If you need a Dentist, even if you are one of those folks who are wary of them, this is the place to go. Well done to all at the Croft. BTW, I was an NHS patient.

Clean modern environment with a very professional friendly team of staff. Its great to go where everything is under one roof. If any of our family have needed to be seen out of hours by an emergency doctor it has been most convenient to go here instead of having to drive all the way to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury.

Great service here. Been a few times for blood tests quickly seen and staff are great. Also been for physiotherapy, physiotherapist was great obviously had read my medical notes and knew exactly what to do, bad experience in past with different doctors (not the ones here) they hadn't read notes and didn't have a clue. One stop shop for all things medical. No a&e

Bank Buildings Dental Surgery

5 Bank Buildings, Sudbury CO10 2SX, UK – 01787 881100

Great dentist. Happy, smiley, friendly, helpful staff. Private and NHS dentist. Always professional but friendly and human. Good with advice. Although denial treatments are never going to be pain free - the dentist i see here makes it almost so. A great example of all that is great about the NHS.

I've been going to this dental practice for over thirty seven years. I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. Dr Herrington is an exceptional dentist. She combines pleasantness and professionalism in a way that gives you confidence in her ability.

Parish Church of Saint Gregory Sudbury

47 Gregory St, Sudbury CO10 1BA, UK – 01787 371445

Not enough muslims

St Mary's Church

3 Church Field Rd, Sudbury CO10, UK – 07584 662155

This little church has seen great changes in its lifetime, perhaps none so dramatic as those of the last few decades. It sits across the fields from the beautiful, secluded red brick of Chilton Hall, a footpath to it running through woods and between fields for about a quarter of a mile. The irony is that the church's former loneliness was very nearly its demise, for the tiny parish could no longer support its church by the late 1970s, and it was drawn into the parish of Sudbury St Gregory, with St Mary being declared redundant and left to its fate. Fortunately however, this little church has some very energetic and enthusiastic friends who rolled up their sleeves and take good care of it, and in the 1980s it was vested in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, who are now its custodians. The churchyard is a a narrow oasis, making the church appear larger than it actually is, and the two most striking features of the building are the tower and the large chapel on the north side of the chancel. The splendid red brick tower, one of the loveliest in Suffolk, was built on the eve of the Reformation. It has more in common with the red brick towers just over the border in Essex at Gestingthorpe and Wickham St Paul. The Victorians topped it with battlements and turrets, and it is a fine sight through the industrial units from the west. Contemporary with it is the large chantry chapel to the Crane family to the north of the chancel, but the body of the church isn't much older, being good Suffolk Perpendicular. What we have, then, is a building that was constructed pretty much in its entirety during the lifetimes of some of its parishioners. You can collect the key from a cottage beyond the Hall, and you let yourself into the Crane chantry chapel. This is a large open space, not much smaller than the nave of the church to the south-west of it. The earliest of the Cranes lie up one corner, beside the chancel. George Crane died in 1491, and looks rather lonely here, seeing out the centuries in alabaster. But there is a beautifully serene expression on his face, and it is hard to think that it was not intended. Above him to the south are his parents Robert and Anne Crane, also in alabaster of 1500. He is in armour without a helmet, she wears the collar of Ss. The little unicorn under his feet has mislaid his horn, and only the socket remains to tell us what he is. Mortlock notes that Robert and Anne appear among the donors in stained glass a few miles off at Long Melford. Cranes of a century or so later are on the west wall of the chapel, full of self-importance and with nothing like the humanity of their ancestors. In the presence of these grand figures, it would be possible to miss what is probably the greatest treasure of the church. In the east window of the chapel are two relatively complete figures in 15th Century stained glass, of St Apollonia holding her tooth in pincers and St Michael dispatching the devil. They are exquisite. You step through into the nave, which is simply furnished and full of light. There is no stained glass here. The low dado remains of the screen, and the little chancel cannot help but seem a little cluttered. Without the Crane chapel, this church would be by no means as significant. But it would still be very lovely. There is such a sense of love here, everything well-kept and well-cared for, everything in its right place. - Cutesy of Suffolk Churches Website - Simon Knott

I never imagined myself being in the position of needing to go to a Foodbank. But that's life, it has many turns. So I went to Christopher Center and the volunteers were very polite and nice. The welcome was very warming. They offered coffee and biscuits while we had a chat about my situation and I had a great food parcel according to my special dietary needs. They are just amazing Big hearted people

Called into the Boat House more by chance as my cousin and her hubby had come to stay for a few days. had not been into the Boat House for many years. I was pleasantly surprised it is very comfortable inside and nice and pleasant to sit in. I have to say the two very nice and lovely sisters who have done a lot of work to the place are very, very pleasant indeed and most helpful, nothing is too much trouble. We had a cracking and reasonable lunch there. I am planning to take someone else there this Saturday for a meal. I wish them lots of luck and hope they make a success of it.

Lovely location on a summers day sitting by the river. Indoor restaurant looks like it has a good ambience too. Been there twice this week. Nice greeting and good service. Food excellent.
