OSWESTRY TOWN COUNCIL WINS INDOOR MARKET OF THE YEAR
Oswestry Town Council recently won the KPR Midlink Indoor Market of the Year 2013.
The council won the competition in the category of Best Local Council Market. The category was created some years ago recognising the large number of local councils that are now operating markets across the UK.
The title was awarded to the market, which is special to its town and had gone through a major refurbishment in 2012, after winning a national competition with a design produced by Sir Terrance Conran. The judging panel also witnessed the introduction of a new market website with social media initiatives and the introduction of Wi-Fi to the market hall building. This has given the market an increased profile, and proactive management has improved footfall and also created a greater visual impact for shoppers.
