Congratulations to the Market Staff in Ashton-under-Lyne!
Another fantastic plus for our town!
Tameside markets are top of the shops after winning a hatrick of national awards!
Borough is home to Britain’s favourite and greenest market as well as the most dedicated team of staff, according to industry bosses.
Tameside’s marvellous markets are celebrating a hatrick of three top industry awards. Staff have been named ‘market team of the year’ by the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA) after impressing judges with their enthusiasm and the range and quality of services.
Following a public vote earlier this year NABMA crowned Ashton as Britain’s favourite market. It was also named the country’s greenest market by the National Market Traders’ Federation.
NABMA chief executive Graham Wilson said: “We’re delighted to make this award to Tameside as market team of the year.
“The competition was open to nominations from around the UK. The Tameside markets team are committed, enthusiastic and share a vision that centres itself on a proud local market tradition supported by professional management.”
Deputy council leader, Coun John Taylor added: “The success and recognition in all three national awards is a testament to the enthusiasm, innovation and hard work being ploughed into Tameside’s markets to ensure they are vibrant, attractive and sustainable for the future. I would like to take this opportunity to thank traders and staff for their drive and commitment and – importantly – shoppers for their ongoing, loyal support.”
