Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

*Should this change, this page, along with our social media will be updated.


There are several reasons why our markets have been cancelled.

Firstly, to mark our respect, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II reigned for 70 years. She has devoted her life to this country, so it's only fair to pause and take time to reflect on her life. 

Secondly, some of our market sites are being used by Local Authorities for flower laying; therefore, we cannot host specific markets. We have looked at re-locating these, but it's simply not viable. 

Whilst we appreciate this is not ideal, these are unprecedented times. 

These decisions are not taken lightly, and local authorities are always consulted, so they are aware of our choices, and their feedback/advice is always taken on board. 

Every organisation will have different ways they deal with their business operations over this period, and we are doing what we feel is right for our team and business, in addition to taking on board the needs and expectations of our local authotieis and communities.
