Work now to save market

While there is still time, stop the disastrous mistake of not making the market area covered with protection from the freezing wind and rain coming from the river.

Swap sides while there’s still time and make the market covered on the side they’re working on now.

On Saturday, November 7, there were only five or six stalls. The rain was pouring down with no cover for traders or anyone else, hence people avoided the market.

Those poor traders paid for their stalls and very likely didn’t even cover the cost of the stall.

The most serious aspect of this is people avoiding the popular market.

Wake up planners, you’ve got one chance in probably 100 years to get this right.  

Please act now and save our popular market.
