What a fantastic first week we were experiencing for Love Your Local Market. Please look at our social media platforms and catch up with all the events, the people, the colour and atmosphere that is being generated for this national and worldwide celebration of markets.
The highlight so far is without doubt the endorsement for the Love Your Local Market campaign from the Prime Minister himself.
We are delighted at this loud Westminster support for NABMA and the campaign alongside the recognition of the important role that markets can play in supporting the various government agendas for the regeneration of high streets and communities. We are extremely grateful to our Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group, Simon Baynes MP for his genuine passion about markets and taking the opportunity to talk markets with the Prime Minister, and of course, for the photo opportunity. Our Chairman has also been busy today visiting the new City of Wrexham to visit the local market and talk with traders. As reminders for Love Your Local Market
