COUNTRY MARKET - New members still needed!

COUNTRY MARKET - New members still needed!

Chris French writes:

During the recent hot weather the whole market has been taking place in the Undercroft. This has boosted sales as the market is more visible, attracting new customers. Our homegrown vegetables are particularly prolific at the moment, thanks to Rosa.

Recently a new cook, Tamsin, has joined the market - we value her contribution and hope she will stay. We still need to recruit new members, so if anyone enjoys baking, making jam and marmalade, or growing plants, or makes pottery, do come and see us on a Thursday morning. The more varied our producer base is, the more viable the market will become. More »

There is room too for people who would like to become part of our group as helpers, we work on a co-operative basis and being at market is a wonderful way both to meet people and to keep up with local events. Maybe your skills lie in book-keeping or administration, rather than baking or craft - we would welcome you.

Please think about visiting the market (on Thursday mornings, 8.30 - 11.00), speaking to the producers, and finding out more. If the market were to close it would be a great loss to the community, and an end to an organisation that has run with great success in the town for over forty years.
