Has Jack Wiffin been looking at the Shields posters again?
For a start there isn’t a market on Tuesday, and more importantly he, obviously, hasn’t been to the Friday markets recently.
In the last few weeks there were only four empty stalls on two consecutive weeks followed by a full market, that’s no empty stalls at all, none, nil, zero.
So the joke is on you. Take off the blinkers and don’t believe the popular hype.
