Church Street’s section is to be closed from 7am to 5pm on Monday (24 October) to Friday (28 October) and again between the same times on Monday 31 October to Wednesday 2 November.

It comes as the Fishergate paving is extended up part of Church Street and it is eventually due to go around the front of the Guild Hall and to the Bus Station.
