Since it took over management of the Market, Market Square and Town Hall two years ago, the Town Council has been introducing new ideas for markets to complement the regular Friday event.
So it was good to be able to combine a visit to the Fairtrade Breakfast with some shopping for things I can’t always get on a Friday. The Market Square provided some really exotic offerings in the now regular Food producer’s market. I picked up my usual Britman Beer brewed in Burton and some artisan bread amongst others. Musical entertainment was this month provided by Neston Strummers. Although they invited me to take part, I failed to make the grade!
Indoors the quality of the arts and crafts for sale was truly exceptional: paintings, modelling, woodcarving, jewellery, knitwear, photography – I know I shouldn’t try listing things because I know I’ve left some out. Best come along and see for yourself next time. But I did pick up a pair of wooden cufflinks and a Liverpool FC Subbuteo set in a frame, and Sue chose a unique necklace.
Thanks to Town Centre Manager Katy Pierce for developing these market innovations.
