I am planning for the community Indoor markets to continue on the second Saturday of each month in some shape or form. This year any monies made will be given to Cancer Research UK (CRUK) – another much-valued and crucial charity needing support.

We will be back on Saturday, 9 March 2024 with a full market, refreshments, refills, and recycling. Mothering Sunday and Easter cards and gifts will be a focus.

The other 2024 dates for your diary will be: 13 April, 11 May, 8 June, 13 July, 10 August, 14 September, 12 October, 9 November, 14 December.

Although we have beautiful crafts made by very talented local crafters, it was felt that we should scale the crafter’s markets down to every other month.

In the interim months, we will still provide community refreshments and a warm meeting place, with just a few stalls more focussed on food and refills, and of course the recycling.

I have already had a request to run a plant stall too which is wonderful, but if anyone has any contacts for food stalls, please get in touch.

I am also looking for groups or individuals to run the refreshments (profits to their own charity) or indeed have a craft stall on the bigger markets.

Please contact me on: 07712 424 901 or email me on: if you would like to help in any way. Please, if you are a supporter of your community, spread the word and encourage others to come along.
