AT Huntingdon Town Partnership we work ‘in partnership’ to make Huntingdon a better place for residents, workers and visitors, and to achieve this it is important that we retain every one of the businesses in town.

It was therefore very sad to see that both Thorntons and Curry's closed their doors last Saturday, after trading in the High Street for many years.

These well-known national chains are a significant loss for our town, and we would like to wish the managers, Kim (Thorntons) and Adrian (Curry's), and all their staff, good luck for the future. They will be missed.

All towns are constantly evolving, and it is great to be in a town that does have exciting plans for the future and major projects on the drawing board. At present, empty units are being renovated at 51 and 116 High Street, and a noodle bar has submitted a planning application for 35 High Street.

At Huntingdon Town Partnership we will continue to support all retailers, businesses and local organisations in our quest to make Huntingdon a major local centre for shops and services, while encouraging everyone to 'shop local' and support our town.
