22/04/2021Welcome back from the MarketThe team at West Suffolk Markets would like to welcome back the town centre businesses and hope that the first week or so of trading has been a success. The market is now back to full strength, with more stallholders joining us in the coming weeks.

22/04/2021Motorsport East 2021 EventWe are in the process of organising this event for Sunday 25th July, where we are anticipating around 50 motorsport vehicles being displayed within the Buttermarket and Cornhill. Understandably the focus on the day will be the cars but we would also like to offer any BID business a free pitch for the day and to be able to have access to all who visit the event. If you require a gazebo and want us to arrange this for you, then there will be a charge to cover this cost. Further details will soon be published about the event itself but if you would like to have a presence at the event then please contact my colleague Jackie on 01284 766258 or via e mail at Jackie.regan@ourburystedmunds.com
