Inverness' Eastgate Centre and Victorian Market are working together this Christmas.

The Eastgate Centre will have reindeer-themed decorations, while their existing festive decorations have been donated to the Victorian Market.

Jackie Cuddy, Eastgate Centre Manager, stated: "We have always believed that a City Centre is only as good as the parts it is made up of.  The Victorian Market has as big a part to play in the vitality of the City Centre as Eastgate Centre. As a member of the stakeholder group for the Victorian Market it seemed an obvious choice to donate the decorations to the Market.

"In addition it is always good to recycle and refurbish decorations especially when they can be utilised for the benefits of the local community elsewhere."

Accepting the donated decorations, Victorian Market Manager, Jo Murray, said: “This is an exceptionally generous gift that the Victorian Market has received and I thank Jackie Cuddy for supporting us in this way. We could not have afforded this type of internal decoration otherwise. It goes to show how collaborative working among Inverness city centre businesses can benefit the public for the least amount of expense. We are installing some of the decorations in Market Arcade this year with a view to adapt the rest for future use around the Market.”
