Rotherham Market is tops

ROTHERHAM Street Market is officially the best in the land - and the borough council has the gong to prove it!

The market was voted the country’s best after Mary Portas, Queeen of Shops, made very positive comments about it following her visit there.

At a national ceremony the street market award was presented to Robin Lambert, Markets General Manager and Coun Gerald Smith who is the Cabinet Member for Town Centres, Economic Growth and Prosperity.

Coun Smith said, “We knew following the Mary Portas visit that we had got things right in Rotherham but to be voted the best in the whole country is a significant honour and one that we are rightly proud of. A great deal is being done to ensure that Rotherham is an attractive place for all shoppers”.
