Response to Government's 4 Step Plan
Following the Prime Ministers announcement yesterday, Monday 22nd February, CJ's Events Warwickshire would like to confirm our Market & Event Response to the Government's steps announced.
Jamie Walker from CJ's Events Warwickshire said: "This is becoming increasingly frustrating and in 5 years of running markets, we've never had to cancel so many markets in such a short period.
"Gusts are reaching 43mph throughout Saturday, as forecasted by the Met Office. Stalls can become very dangerous in strong winds or gusts, it's just not worth the risk. Safety is our main concern.
"This is having a financial impact on all involved. We've been looking at moving traders to an indoor venue, so at least some form of market can take place, however we've been unable to agree appropriate access times.
"We know many traders and visitors will be upset by this decision, but hope they understand our reasons why. Our whole team hope the weather improves in the coming week, so we can get back into a routine and see our traders & visitors again."
