New Producers’ market in Burntwood is welcomed by council leader

New Producers’ market in Burntwood is welcomed by council leader

The news a producers' market will be starting in Burntwood has been welcomed by the leader of Lichfield District Council.

A three-month pilot will see the event take place at Sankey's Corner this summer.

It will be funded from a £20,000 pot to help create more community events across the district.

Cllr Doug Pullen, leader of Lichfield District Council, said he hoped the market would prove popular.

"As a former Burntwood resident, I've long realised the potential of a farmers' market in the town, particularly with the extra footfall that it will create for the shops at Sankey's Corner.

"Hopefully we will also be able to shut down a small section of the Cannock Road for market days too, which will bring a real sense of vibrancy to the area.

"I firmly believe that as a district council we must focus on more than just Lichfield city centre, and this is a very small step in the right direction.

"I look forward to seeing what other community events we can fund across our fantastic district."

Burntwood Producers' Market will take place on the second Sunday of the month in July, August & September.
