"The regeneration of the Old Town has been phenomenal, with the incredibly successful Old Town Grant Scheme, which has helped many of the businesses in the market and the arcade, last month being recognised at the APSE Annual Service Awards." Trinity Market’s refurbishment and the grant scheme were made possible in part by a contribution of £3m for the Repurposing the Old Town programme from the Government’s Northern Powerhouse Local Growth Fund.
