A twice-weekly provisions market in west Suffolk has a positive future with the creation of a new role to develop and promote it, traders have said.
Sharon Fairweather, former tourism officer with St Edmundsbury Borough Council, is the new west Suffolk markets development officer, covering the markets in Bury St Edmunds, Haverhill, Newmarket, Mildenhall and Brandon.
Darren Old, chairman of the Bury St Edmunds branch of the National Market Traders’ Federation (NMTF), said this appointment, along with the revised market licence regulations, meant there was a bright future for Bury market which is held on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Last year the NMTF said Bury’s market was one of the top five in the UK.
