An ice cream parlour and sweet shop will be moving into a tearoom later this year. 

Clutterham and Daughters opened next to Ivy & Bond tearoom in Long Melford in May last year. 

Helen Clutterham, who owns both businesses, reopened the ice cream parlour for this year's summer season on May 4. 

Speaking previously about the traditional parlour, Mrs Clutterham said: "If you look at somewhere like Lavenham they have two ice cream parlours and I think in a place like Long Melford it is something that will work very well especially in the summer."

It was recently announced Clutterham and Daughters will be closing at the end of the season and moving into the tearoom next door. 

A statement from Ivy and Bond said: "Just to let everyone know that this will be our second and last season with the separate ice cream and sweet shop open.

"We are very much staying in Long Melford and will continue to serve our delicious ice cream and traditional sweets from Ivy & Bond under one roof."
