Mill Road Winter Fair Wins Praise From Government Thanks To Cambridge MP

Residents and traders of Cambridge’s Mill Road have been congratulated by the government for their annual Winter Fair and wishes success for this Saturday’s annual event.

The praise came today (Thursday, December 5) after the city’s MP Julian Huppert told Parliament how the event celebrated “one of the most diverse shopping areas”.

He told MPs that this year’s Winter Fair on Saturday coincides with Small Business Saturday.

“For many years Mill Road Winter Fair has celebrated one of the most diverse shopping areas in Cambridge,” Julian said. “Will the government encourage those who are running it so we can see real diversity and a road closure so people can walk really easily to the shops?”

Business and Education Minister, Matthew Hancock said: “I can absolutely congratulate Cambridge and what they are doing for Small Business Saturday and I am sure it will be a great success.”
