Future of Suffolk town's market reviewed

A Suffolk town's market has been subject to a review to ensure it is "fit for the future".

The bi-weekly market in Bury St Edmunds has been analysed by the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA).

The NABMA made recommendations such as improving publicity, a review of waste management and more support for new businesses starting on the market.

"This is a thriving and very popular market," an NABMA spokesman said.

Sara Mildmay-White, St Edmundsbury Borough Council cabinet member responsible for the borough's markets, said: "This was an excellent review which gives us a good foundation on which to work, in partnership with the traders, to make sure the market is fit for the future.

"We need to ensure it thrives not just now but for many years to come."
