Callington Market

Callington Town Market – Set Out Your Stall!

The Council is planning on organising a monthly market based at the Pannier Market where local stall holders can sell their crafts, services & products.

There will be space for over 40 stall holders in marquees & tables, electricity and internet access can be supplied. The first market will be on the 7th July 2019 from 10:00am to 3:00pm.

To express your interest in attending please visit our “Callington Town Market” page by clicking here & fill in the online form or download and print out a paper copy and return it to the Market Committee who will then review the forms. Chosen stallholders will then be contacted and asked to make payment which will then confirm your space.

Stallholders will be selected based on their product and locality. This will enable a variety of goods to be on sale and avoid duplicate stalls where possible. Preference will be given by locality when/if we receive more than one application per category of goods.

Gunnislake Bridge closure

Message from Cormac:

‘An RTA at Gunnislake has resulted in a closure of the A390 with a diversion route in place via Greystone Bridge & Callington. Unfortunately due to the damage caused to the bridge, we anticipate that this closure will be in place for some time. Further information will be available from Devon County Council once the bridge has been fully assessed by their Structural Engineers.

We appreciate that our overnight closure on the A388 through St Mellion is going to put an increased strain on traffic in the area and are putting measures in to place to get the resurfacing completed as soon as possible.

Additional traffic marshals will be stationed at either end of the closure on the A388 to assist road users who will still be able to access as far as St Mellion.

I have attached copies of both diversion routes.’


Market Initiative – Job Vacancy

Callington Town Council are launching a Market initiative in the  Pannier Market commencing Summer 2019 and we are looking for enthusiastic and hardworking individuals to join our events team to assist with the setting up and clear away of the market equipment such as marquees, gazebos and furniture.

The market is due to take place on the first Sunday of every month with a typical shift lasting up to 10 hours (weather dependant).

As the initial start-up takes places there will be training and “Practice days” which you will be required to attend, and you will be paid for your attendance.
