Markets- response to Coronavirus

Currently the Market is due to open and is scheduled to continue to operate every Thursday, Friday and Saturday (if permitted by the government to do so). The Market is operating under the new restrictions for retailers (imposed by the government on 23.03.2020) and only approved businesses will be allowed to trade. Traders are taking additional measures to protect themselves and the public they serve.

In line with government guidelines, traders (as all retailers) must adhere to the following:
• Ensure a distance of two meters between customers and shop assistants; and
• Let people enter the shop only in small groups, to ensure that spaces are not crowded.
• Queue control is required outside of shops and other essential premises that remain open.

 The Farmers and Craft Markets have been suspended until further notice. Traders that sell products which have been approved by the Government have been given the opportunity to trade at the Thursday, Friday Saturday Market.

The Town Council have the safety of the traders, its officers and the public as its primary focus. The Council will be reviewing this service as new government guidelines are released.
