Independents Week

July 2, 2021 - July 8, 2021
Newmarket High Street

On Friday the 2nd July Tommo visited a number of high street businesses in Newmarket to celebrate Independents week.

Independents week is a part of a national campaign asIndependent businesses account for around 65% of the approximately 290,000 retail outlets in the UK and are at the heart of local communities throughout the country.

The event was organised by Paul Brown, manager of Love Newmarket BID. “The last year has been such a huge challenge to all our businesses, especially our independent ones. The fact that today so many of these businesses are still trading is a testament to the hard work and resilience of their owners. Today we celebrate their achievements and remind local residents how important it is support them.”

During the day Tommo visited 11 local stores including Hartwell Blinds, Flowers Made with Love and Treasures Antiques. In addition Tommo interviewed the Mayor Councillor Michael Jeffreys who stated how important independent businesses are to the future of Newmarket.

In addition to the independent’s event, the Mayor today met with business owners as part of the “shop local, support your high street campaign” which was first created a year ago by Paul Brown at Love Newmarket.
