“This year our town has seen many exciting new developments. Through Northampton Alive and Love Northampton we have been able to show why everyone should take a closer look at what is happening in our town.
“Love Northampton has seen us working hard to promote events, entertainment, shopping, restaurants and more. There is always something new to see on http://www.lovenorthampton.co.uk/, whether you live in Northampton or are looking for an exciting place to visit.
“At the same time Northampton Alive is drawing attention to our town’s exciting future. This year we have announced tens-of-millions of pounds worth of investment in Northampton, creating jobs and opportunities. At the start of the year we listed the most important projects on the horizon. Since then we have seen work starting and in some cases completing on a number of these projects. Visit www.northampton.gov.uk/northamptonalive to find out more.
“Rest assured we will not be sitting on our laurels and the next 12 months will see us continue to improve and make Northampton a better place to live in, work in and visit. Our town has a bright future and I would like to wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2013.”
