What a difference a week makes. It’s only been seven days since my last column but in that time I’ve been busy launching a new website dedicated for Stevenage town centre.

Whether you live in Stevenage, are a visitor to the town, or want to open a new store, you’ll find lots of useful information on the site. It’s important to have a place where people can find out about the latest news, events and what’s coming up in the town centre as well as know where you can go for a coffee or buy a new pair of jeans.

From next week you can access the website at www.stevenagetowncentre.com. Be sure to sign up to the community newsletter so you’ll be the first to hear about the latest discounts and offers that shops in the town centre are offering.

Those with a keen eye might notice the colours of the website and logo is in keeping with the Mondrian style design, which is synonymous with Stevenage and features inside the fountain and also on some shop window fronts across the town centre.

Talking of the Mondrian style design, next Wednesday the Mayor of Stevenage, Councillor Pam Stuart, will be opening a new stall at the Indoor Market. School children from Woolenwick School are displaying an exhibition which shows off their artwork inspired by the artist Piet Mondrian.

The Indoor Market is open to the public every Wednesday to Saturday so pop along to give the children some support and while you’re there take advantage of all the stalls selling products that are not always found in the town centre shops.

Looking ahead to this weekend and the Royal British Legion, Army Cadets North and Royal Air Force will be in the Town Square on Saturday to celebrate Armed Forces Day.

The Indoor Market is also supporting the occasion and families will be able to enjoy free face painting, Armed Forces Day cupcakes, balloons, and arts and crafts.

Free parking will be available above in St George’s Way multi-storey from 8am to 6pm.

We’ve held a lot of events in the town centre recently and it’s been great for me to hear some of the organisers telling me that they’re busier here than when visiting neighbouring towns.

That’s it from me for now so let’s see what the next seven days brings. Remember to check out my new website www.stevenagetowncentre.com and follow @lovestevenagetc on Facebook and twitter.
