Acomb Alive, the voluntary committee which is driving the regeneration of the Front Street area, have published a new newsletter.
In it they reveal plans which could lead to a street market being established in part of the (pedestrianised) section of Front Street.
This was the idea put forward a year ago by the Liberal Democrats, residents and traders but which received only half hearted support from the Council.
The present Council’s continuing antipathy towards Acomb is evident from the latest plans which show only a handful of stall spaces being made available.
What the area needs is a sustained boost to “footfall” figures if it is to benefit for the current improvement in the economy.
NB. An Easter Fair will take place on Saturday 19th April between 9:00am and 4:00pm at the Working Mens Club.
The fair will include an Easter bonnet competition.
