Shoppers in Sleaford encouraged to ‘love their market’ at an upcoming event this month

Sleaford Market is working with NAMBA to hold the ‘Love your Local Market’ event on 18 and 25 May.

Efforts are currently being made to increase interest in the towns market, following a lull in traders and shoppers.

In January this year, the market had only one trader turn up, despite pitches costing as little as £3.50 a day.

Sleaford Town Council and North Kesteven District Council are currently discussing the possibility of arranging a trial move to the Money’s Yard Car Park in the centre of town in order to increase footfall.

The councils are due to discuss the plans for the future of the market on 22 May.

The larger problem of the so-called ‘death of the high street’ is affecting towns and cities up-and-down the country, and the government has set up the ‘Future High Street Fund‘, inviting local authorities to apply for funds to renovate high street across the country.
