War memorial facelift

Councillors have agreed to back a £20,000 scheme to give Newmarket war memorial garden a facelift.

At a meeting on Monday, members of the town council’s community services committee agreed a grant of £5,000 towards the project which is set to get underway after this year’s remembrance commemoration.

A detailed design has been agreed and work will include removing broken and loose paving slabs and replanting tree and shrubs.
