A NEW town centre manager has been appointed for Huntingdon.
Katy Sismore, who has lived in Godmanchester for 10 years, takes up her new post in January. She has been appointed to replace Emma Thornton who left in early December to work as a centre manager in Cambridge.
Mrs Sismore has a degree in management from Manchester University and worked for 12 years at the clothing store C&A.
She says that her experience with the store - especially relocating every two years - gave her a wide knowledge of different towns and cities across the UK, which will prove invaluable in her new role of town centre manager.

After a short break to start a family, Mrs Sismore worked for Cambridgeshire Countryside Watch, addressing crime reduction for rural businesses in the Huntingdonshire area. Four years later she helped to set up the now well established Huntingdonshire Business Against Crime, focusing on the issues facing businesses in market towns of Huntingdon, St Ives and St Neots.
Mrs Sismore says: "This is an exciting time for Huntingdon and the residents of the town. We have a vibrant, historic market town and the prospect of several current and future developments due for completion, within the town centre and on the edge of town, in the next five years.
