Thumbs up for market

Have your say

A NIGHT market could be about to start in Thetford.

The market would run once a month on the Market Place from 5.30pm to 9.30pm and include entertainment, according to the group behind the plans.

Members of SoRT-IT – a group working to reinvigorate the town’s High Street – presented the idea to Thetford Town Council’s Guildhall and markets committee last Thursday.

Following discussion, councillors voted to recommend to full council that the plans were approved, with the town council running the market.

A special meeting on May 16 has been proposed to discuss the issue further.

If given the go ahead, the night market would begin on May 29.
