Urmston Market, one of our local treasures, is running a Summer Fayre on Saturday, 22nd June. If bunting, old-fashioned sweets, fairground rides, balloon sculpture and craft stalls sound like your idea of fun on a beautiful summer’s day, etch it on your diary now. If you’re a fan of celebrity animals, such as Pepa Pig and Cracker the Fire Dog, make sure you bring your autograph book because these A-list beasts are clamouring to attend.
Organised by the stallholders themselves, led by the lovely Sandra who runs the Candy Stripes sweet stall in the covered part of the market, the Summer Fayre at Urmston Market will also showcase all our favourite regulars, such as the fruit stall, Budget Baby Boutique, Attiques Jewellery, the plant stall, the ironmonger and the fashion stalls (if I have missed any, please comment below and I shall amend!). There will also be a face painter, a real fire engine and an artisan woodcarver.
Do we want a vibrant market in Urmston? Yes, we do! How can we support it? Use it (or lose it). Just buy one thing on the market this weekend. In the words of the supermarket behemoths: every little helps. This is just a suggestion; if you normally buy two things I’m not suggesting you should buy one less! Promote Urmston Market’s Summer Fayre on 22nd June by telling your friends about it or posting this link on Facebook, Twitter and wherever else you like to post.
Finally, there are a couple of stalls left at the bargainous price of £12, so if you are an independent Urmston trader and you want to show off your goods at Urmston Market’s Summer Fayre on 22nd June, contact us and we will pass on the contact details.
