a 3.5 percent decrease in footfall across the country, so to see the market on the rise is a real achievement.” Speaking as he met


some of the new traders at Idlewells, Cllr Zadrozny added: “We have some top quality businesses now trading here, from fresh fruit and vegetables to an award winning cobbler and everything in between such as foodies, crafters, boutiques and cafes. “There really is something


for everyone.” The cost of the works


was met by Ashfield District Council along with £375,000

via the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership’s Local Growth Fund allocation. The D2N2 LEP is the


private sector-led partnership which promotes economic growth across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Tom Goshawk, Capital


Projects Manager for the D2N2 LEP, said: “Town centres need strong retail centres and markets at their heart, which is why the D2N2 LEP co-funded the Idlewells indoor market refurbishment.


“It is great to see that this


has led to an increase in trader and customer interest, despite a challenging time for retail premises nationally.” New traders Dreamcatcher


Gifts and Naboulsi’s Pizzeria & Caffe both opened their stalls last month, and are exci ted about this new opportunity. Andrew El son from


Dreamcatcher Gifts said: “Idlewells is a very warm and friendly market and our sales are already above what we had expected. “We have seen that over


the last twenty years, indoor markets in general have struggled. It’s nice to see Idlewells Market busy with good footfall, which we hope will continue to increase.”

Special mention for market


Market traders in a Cheshire town have been commended for their contribution to this year’s Love your Local Market campaign. The praise went to Knutsford Market Hall, which has


been commended by the National Association of British Markets Authorities (NABMA). Love your Local Market took place over the last two


weeks in May, and during this time Knutsford Market Hall hosted Egerton School Choir, a face painter and competitions, and had a ‘sample’ day offering visitors to the town a taste of all the products the market offers. There was also a strong social media campaign across


Twitter and Facebook. All traders took part in the campaign, and NABMA


offered special praise to Knutsford Market Hall for its strong participation nationally for LYLM, with specific mention for photography from Tatton Photography and trader engage- ment from The Market Café. The market overall topped the list of special mentions


nationally for its campaign as well. Sandra Curties, town centre manager, told local media:


“Everyone at The Market Hall was really pleased with the way the campaign went this year. “It has been great to see new faces in the market and


our different mix of stalls. “We hope people are realising what a gem the market


is. We host supper clubs, quiz nights and take part in community events all year round.”

Naboulsi’s Pizzeria & Caffe said: “All the traders here at the market have been very friendly and welcoming. “I


support


received fantast ic from the markets


team at Ashfield District Council who advised about the support grants I could


apply for. I’m very thankful for providing the help and information I needed to start my own business at Idlewells.” The market
