A number of events have been organised to mark the further easing of lockdown in the district's market towns.
Now that lockdown restrictions have eased further, Huntingdonshire District Council is encouraging more people to shop locally and show appreciation for their local towns.
The work of the district council’s Think Local campaign, supported by The Hunts Post, is to encourage local people to return to the towns and reinforce their love of the high streets.
"During May, we are celebrating the ‘Love Your Towns’ message, refreshed across all of the market towns to encourage local people to embrace the district and how unique each town is," said a spokesperson for HDC.
All four towns have put up floral displays and Think Local campaign coloured bunting has been erected down the high streets, alongside additional resources installed by the district council’s street cleansing team to ensure the towns were refreshed for the reopening of non-essential retail and hospitality.
