Oswestry Love Your Local Market Campaign 13th and 16th May
Oswestry Market is one of over 900 markets taking part in the national Love Your Local Market campaign inspired by Mary Portas’ report on the future of our High Streets.
Love Your Local Market in Oswestry takes place on the 13th and 16th May and is being backed by Central Government, the Markets Alliance & individuals such as market trader.
The campaign aims to attract new market traders & also aims to highlight the importance that markets play in the heart of the local community, not only for retail but they are a valuable community asset and, in many places, provide the focal point of our town centres.
To support the national campaign here Oswestry Town Council continues to offer stalls for a “tenner” to encourage potential traders to use the market. Stalls are also available for local charities or for other organisations such as the library and various other local groups. There will be plenty of entertainment, face painting, giveaways and competitions to help celebrate the occasion.
Graham Wilson, Chief Executive of the National Association of British Markets Authorities says "This is the biggest national markets event for a generation and there is a real opportunity for markets to show what they can do for job creation and bringing town centres to life".
