A DAY of attractions marked the reopening of one of Northallerton’s most popular shopping streets after months of improvement works.

The Mayor of Northallerton, Cllr David Richardson, cut the tape to officially reopen the upgraded Zetland Street on Saturday.

Shoppers enjoyed special events including an outdoor photography exhibition at Joe Cornish Galleries and music from an outdoor jukebox.

Chancellor and Richmond MP Rishi Sunak also popped in to congratulate the traders on a successful day.

The Northern Echo:

Jo Rose, curator at Joe Cornish Galleries, who organised the celebrations, said: “We’re so pleased to show shoppers everything this unique street has to offer.

"Many thanks to everyone who came along to help us celebrate the reopening. It was great to see so many new faces and hopefully we have spread the message that we are a very special street.”

The street has been enhanced as part of a joint £4.5m town centre improvement project and links the High Street and to the new Treadmills centre, which is due to open next month.
