Christmas shoppers are being urged to support a market town in Suffolk after a major fire in September.
Several businesses in Sudbury were damaged in the blaze.
MP James Cartlidge said thanks to hard work from the community the town centre was open for business and ready for the Christmas rush.
He added: "The fire that ripped through Sudbury in September was devastating.
"With a number of residents losing their homes and small businesses suffering severe damage, the town could have taken a long time to recover.
"However, whilst a lot remains to do, Sudbury has pulled together and I have been delighted to see the enormous community spirit that has allowed it to flourish in the face of this adversity.
"Through hard work and dedication, the community has ensured that the town is ready for the Christmas rush, a fantastic achievement.
"I encourage all of my constituents to show their support for Sudbury by doing their shopping for the festive season in this resilient town.”
