Heywood Market enters phase two of its refurbishment
Two months into its refurbishment, Heywood Magic Market has nearly completed phase one of its transformation.
To help existing businesses and entice new ones, work to revitalise the look and feel of the local market, based on York Street, began on Monday 15 February.
Funded entirely by Heywood Market Board, local building contractors Armstrong’s are responsible for the ongoing modifications.
A representative of Heywood Market Board said: “We are really pleased with how the transformation is going.
“Phase one is nearly completed, so we are getting ready to move onto phase two of the process.
“Heywood Market Board have funded this entire project by themselves to hopefully revitalise and regenerate the market to enable our traders/tenants to continue and develop their businesses.
“Not only this, but the board are also keen to keep the market as a community asset for the people of Heywood.
“We look forward to the rest of the journey and, as always, we thank our customers old and new for their continued and positive support.
”Exciting times are ahead.”
Set in the heart of Heywood, the market has enjoyed hundreds of years of trading since it is believed to have opened in the 1800s. Over the last 18 years – since the launch of Heywood Magic Development Trust – the market has seen vast improvements and will continue to undergo upgrades over the coming months.
With Rochdale Borough Council as Heywood Market’s superior landlord, market traders were recently assured that there are no plans to ‘move the bulldozers in’ to the market as the council adopts a new town centre masterplan.
