Save the Date: Saturday 1st August 2020 10.00am to 12.30pm.
Great News!! At the time of writing, it seems that, with sensible and appropriate precautions, we are able to open up Silchester Village Market once more. However, it will be a bit different as it will be held outdoors on the playing field. There will be plenty of space between stalls to practice social distancing, so you can view and buy your purchases safely. Plenty of car parking also.
COVID-19 has hit all businesses hard and many of our stallholders have had to change their business markedly to keep an income coming in. This has involved home deliveries, pre-arranged collections, posting goods etc. and I know that many of you have supported your favourite stalls during the last few months, for which they are most grateful.
The Market is a place to come for provisions and is a valuable source of income for these small businesses, perhaps even more important in these unprecedented times. If you can safely attend the Market on the 1st August and spend your money, this will really help keep these businesses going and keep our £s local. Those attending, at the time of writing, are:
Our thanks to Suzi and Jane who will be opening up the Pop-up Café for take-away refreshments, for the duration of the Market.
Keep safe and well and look forward to seeing you at the Market on 1st August.
