UPDATE: Although the 16th March market & craft fair has been officially cancelled, we have been asked to let you know that four traders – Dan the Fish Man (fish!), Gardeners Delight (fruit & veg), Higher Hacknell Farm (organic meat) and Oakcroft Farm Produce (meat/pasties etc.) will be trading independently on the square tomorrow morning.

ORIGINAL POST: As you may have been aware, the weather forecast for Saturday 16th March has been bad all week. Having checked again today and seeing no improvement, the Committee have taken the regrettable but necessary decision to cancel the market on Saturday.

The gusts of wind forecast mean that it would not be safe to use the gazebos and everyones safety is at the forefront of our decision.

It is never an easy decision to cancel a market as we don’t want to let down our customers. However, we trust that you will understand and support us in this.

Hopefully, all will be back to normal for April and the sun will be shining!

On behalf of CFM Committee
