Market Stalls Initiative

A new sub-committee has recently been formed to consider the possibility of purchasing market stalls and equipment to aid a market stall initiative.  The Town Council has secured the finances to purchase such equipment in order to get the idea established but in order to move forward they need to ascertain if it is viable and if there is enough community support to guarantee the longevity of the project.

An inaugural meeting has been scheduled for next week, Tuesday 29th January in the Council Chamber at 6.30pm.  We would like to invite traders and residents to attend a public session at the start of the meeting to put forward constructive thoughts and ideas.

The committee will then use this information to develop the idea further.

Please come along and let us know your thoughts and suggestions. We look forward to seeing you.

Allotments available

Take on an allotment and grow your own fresh fruit and vegetables.

For just £2.50 per month (paid annually) you could be growing your own fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs at a very low cost. Not only will you and your family will benefit from eating healthy food that you have grown yourself, you will be enjoying the benefits of being out in the fresh air and meeting people with a like minded interest.

If you are interested in taking on an allotment, please contact the Town Council office on 01579 384039 or email
