A new half-way house for people well enough to leave hospital but still needing support has been opened in Acton by Long Melford GP Dr Mark Chambers.

Pound Tree Garden B&B will see residents staying at the family home of Acton parish councillor Peter Edwards and his wife Lisa, alongside bed and breakfast guests.

The scheme’s creator, Sue Tighe, hopes it will help prevent hospital bed-blocking.
