Welcome to Downham Market Town Council website.


The Mayor’s Welcome


Downham Market is a small market town on the edge of the fens which, like all others, has grown over recent years and its people are open and friendly but mindful of their town’s history and heritage.

There are good road and rail links to the rest of the country with a promise of half hourly trains to London.

I was born and brought up in the immediate area of Downham Market. Having started my education in the Town I then spent some time at Wymondham College and then Goldsmiths’ College, London, before returning to Downham Market. I have spent my whole working life in and around the Town.

My ambitions for the coming year of the Downham Market Town Council are, primarily, to build on the work already being undertaken by the Council and to endeavour to promote the Town and its many attributes to the wider community. I hope to continue to work towards the Local Government Award Scheme Gold Award, to continue to improve and develop communications with Borough Council, to work with the Town Council and public to sort out the Car Park Management scheme to the satisfaction of the majority through fair discussion, debate and communication and to continue to develop the publicity and communications between the Town Council and the public.

I look forward to the opening of “Discover Downham” – the Heritage Centre at the old Fire Station later in the Council year.

It will be a pleasure for my wife and Mayoress Margaret and I to meet you during our term of office and to work alongside Deputy Mayor Frank Daymond and his wife Heather.
