For immediate release 

Reopening Newtown

Since lockdown began Newtown’s public toilets have been closed and the Tuesday market has been restricted to food retailers only. With the recent announcements from Welsh Government on Friday 3rd July, and the easing of restrictions throughout Wales, Newtown’s public toilets are open again from Monday 6th July and the Tuesday market has welcomed back non-food retailers from Tuesday 7th July.

Mayor Cllr D Selby said “I am delighted that Newtown is coming back to life.  Businesses and shops are opening, and friends and neighbours can once again start meeting around our streets. Thank you to everyone working to bring life back to Newtown, carefully and following the correct guidelines”

Newtown’s public toilets are reopened with the same opening hours (7am – 7pm) every day. We encourage people to wash their hands at every opportunity when using the public toilets.

The Mayor added “The Town Council is playing its part by re-opening the toilets in the Back Lane and Gravel Car parks and by ensuring that the street market re-opens correctly.  Newtown is definitely Open for Business”

The Tuesday market may look slightly different for a foreseeable future and the positions of traders may need to be adjusted to help increase space on the street. We hope you will come to support the traders on their return.
