We are so excited to announce that our beloved Woodbridge Thoroughfare has been shortlisted for The Great British High Street Awards 2018!

Woodbridge is an attractive and historic riverside town. The town’s unique centre has retained all its charm and character which is defined by the architecture and historical interest. The Thoroughfare is right at the heart of the town and is bursting at the seams with local businesses, independent shops, cafes and restaurants. If you love Woodbridge place your vote by using the hashtags #GBHSWoodbridge and #MYHIGHSTREET on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

If you haven't quite made your mind up, check out our Top 10 Reasons Why We Love Woodbridge Thoroughfare below:
