Working to build a better town

"For our second term we are dedicated to making Newmarket a better place to live, work and visit. Our town centre landscape is changing at a tremendous pace brought on by a marked change in shopping habits, a challenging economic climate and of course, the effects of the pandemic.

Love Newmarket are here to support and help our members navigate this changing landscape and help deliver a town centre that aspires to ‘thrive’.

Our new business plan builds on the success of our first term and will continue to deliver popular events like the Christmas light Switch, to essential training in first aid, to delivering the introduction of digital and enhanced signage across the town"
