Market’s profits still sliding


Profits from the Wednesday market in the county town of Dorset are continuing to fall following a drop in the number of stalls and visitors, local media has reported. The situation at Dorchester has been


compounded by the £5,700 cost of making good an undetected water leak and the need to carry out a series of repairs and improvements to market buildings. Income from the main weekly market


and the small daily market in Cornhill and other occasional markets are shared 65-35 by Dorset Council and Dorchester Town Council. Profits for the last financial year were


down on projected figures by almost £27,000, with the former West Dorset District Council due £80,116 compared to a budget projection of £97,646, and Dorchester Town Council £43,139 compared to a budget of £52,578. Meeting in Dorchester near the end of


June, a joint markets committee heard that the councils had to dip into a reserve fund for the first time to pay for repairs and improvements, including a new CCTV system and maintenance and repair work to a roof at one of the buildings. The committee also heard that Sunday


car boot income had also shown a slight drop, although after running expenses all the profits from this are distributed to local charities and community organisations.


The best news of the year concerned the


Cornhill stall market, which was previously run as a co-operative but is now operated as a private business, paying the council an annual set fee of around £25,000. Councillors were told that the event had


continued to grow and had attracted new traders. Cllr Molly Rennie said: “It’s been a great


success. We continue to get compliments which is amazing. You get different traders on different days which is part of the joy of it.” Cl l r Janet Hewi t t welcome the


improvement at the Cornhill market but asked that traders be reminded of the times they were permitted to load and unload their stalls. She said there had been a number


of instances of traders driving down the town’s South Street when it was supposed to be pedestrian only, adding that there continued to be a similar problem with delivery drivers calling at shops in the street. The meeting heard that talks are


continuing between the town council and Dorset Council about the possibility of the town council taking over the administration of the markets. Cllr Susie Hosford asked for a report


to the next meeting, and the committee agreed to hold a special meeting if any deal needed to be ratified before the proposed January meeting.


Market move could boost fortunes


A t own c o u n c i l i n Nor thamptonshi re has removed some of its market stal ls from the Market Square ... and the traders were quite happy to see them go. As part of its commitment


Wellingborough Market is on the move Stalls along the town’s


Orient Way will be used for the Friday and Saturday markets, while the new area created will be available for events such as the annual Wellingborough Beach. Council leader Cllr Martin


to reviving the town’s market, earlier this year the council in Wellingborough agreed to a request from traders to permanently relocate the market, which is moving from Market Square to nearby Orient Way. Stallholders have already


reported an increase in footfall following the switch to the new location. Work started near the end


of June to remove 20 of out 48 permanent market stalls, with the remainder staying on the Market Place to be used for the bric-a-brac market and other events.


Griffiths told local media: “We are working with local market traders to do all we can to ensure that the market is used and loved by residents and visitors to the town, and the new location makes stalls more central. “Howe v e r , we a r e


currently keeping more than half of stalls in the market square to meet the needs of some traders while allowing space for events. “We are encouraging


local traders to showcase their products at the market square this summer, and would like to see local


businesses utilising the free stalls throughout the duration of the beach.” A s p o k e sma n f o r


Wellingborough Council added: “Officers at the counci l are creat ing a proposal for the future use of this area, which will be reviewed by councillors. “This information will be


published on the council’s website. In the meantime, any necessary repairs will be made to the paving ready for any events.” The char ter to hold


a we e k l y ma r k e t in Wel l ingborough every Wednesday was granted to the Abbey of Crowland in 1201 by King John. During the Victorian era


the market was positioned in the area between Market Street and what is now Orient Way.
