After months being cooped up and locked down, it was wonderful to be walking through the fresh air of Cambridge market this week, meeting traders, city ambassadors, and shoppers face-to-face – well, space-to-space – to ask how they’re doing, what they want, and what we can all do to help them.

Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority is set to build upon the unprecedented demand for digital connectivity to help businesses and communities recover from the Covid-19 crisis and put them at the leading edge for technology.
