02 Jul A: Gillingham and Shaftesbury Food & Crafts Market
The Gillingham & Shaftesbury Agricultural Society and Turnpike Showground want to give back to the local community while providing a platform for businesses that have lost out during the pandemic a place to sell product and meet customers. Following the recent allowance by the Government for Food Markets and Crafts Fairs our first Gillingham & Shaftesbury Food & Crafts Market – a socially distanced day out in the countryside here on Turnpike Showground will take place on Sunday 26th July 2020 from 10:30am – 4pm.
The cost to trade at the Market is just £10, starting at 3m x 3m up to 9m x 6m, we may need to charge slightly more if over that size. Trade space is completely outside so will need a gazebo. A form and risk assessment is required in advance and available through me in the office.
We are working with a number of advisors to ensure all social distancing is adhered to along with providing traders with handwashing areas and public with sanitiser.
