Congratulations to the market stall traders in Market Harborough, and to the local people who supported their campaign to secure funding to keep the indoor market at the heart of our community.
Harborough District Council had been considering moving traders from the Market Harborough Market Hall and leasing it to a major retail chain. But after listening to the local residents a £410,000 project to create a food hall, modernise toilets and remodel the layout is due to begin in 2014.
It has also been suggested that the market may be open 7 days a week instead of 3, and discussions are underway as to how to temporarily re-home the market stalls in the New Year whilst the refurbishment work is underway.
Our market place supports so many local enterprises, and with a shortage of commercial premises available on the High Street many of those would have had nowhere else to trade from. Anyone who took the time to sign a petition or attend a Council meeting should be proud in the knowledge that they helped shape Market Harborough for years to come. Well done to all involved in securing this much needed funding!
