Littleport is well-served by its local services and shops – whether it’s a hairdo you need, a meal to eat in or takeaway, drapery/gifts, flowers/bouquets, need your feet sorting, pet supplies, garden stuff, lawnmowers to buy or needing mending, carpets/floor covering, and many more businesses lodged in premises around the town.

And together with Littleport’s plumbing and heating specialists, builders, home interior providers, tech and electrical experts etc., they all pay in for adverts in the community’s quarterly magazine, the glossy Littleport Life, that actually keeps the journal going as a free informative, coffee table publication, for Littleport’s residents.

Many also sponsor local clubs and teams as well as individual fundraisers for various good causes
