Mini-market idea for Queen Street

Friday, 29th January 2010.

Half a dozen market stalls could be provided in Queen Street so that townspeople can sell or market items they have made or grown at home.

This was one of four ideas put forward by Haverhill Town Council in its submissions to the Haverhill Partnership Community Fund, a pot of 70,000 available to local organisations for projects.

The market stalls would cost around 6,000 in the first year, and would be available free of charge to residents to use, possibly to investigate whether there is commercial merit in a home-grown starter enterprise.

It would also extend the market atmosphere into Queen Street on a Saturday and benefit the town centre.

Other ideas put forward were more ambitious and expensive - training a dozen new youth support workers in the town at a cost of 12,000, support for community groups in terms of secretarial or finance work at a cost of 27,000 for the first year, and engineering a reduction in thre cost of hall hire in the town, at a cost of 35,000 for the first year.

The town council's community first committee agreed to put the four ideas forward for possible funding.
