Free Village Market Event: Saturday, March 3 2012

Do you hold a regular market in your community building or are you interested in starting one?

There are successful markets running from community buildings in villages and towns throughout Gloucestershire. They provide a local service, support local businesses and provide a meeting place. They also have the potential to attract tourists to your village or town.

The GRCC Accelerator Project is organising a free event to provide information and inspiration for current and aspiring village/town market organisers. This visit will allow you to see a market in action, talk to communities who have successfully set up markets in their village or town buildings and find out hints and tips about setting up or improving your market.

The event will take place on Saturday, March 3 2012, 9.15am-2pm.

Transport and refreshments will be provided free of charge and an outline of the event can be found below.

We will meet at the GRCC offices (Community House, College Green, Gloucester, GL1 2LZ) at 9.15am to travel by coach to Toddington Village Market. We will leave there at approximately 11.30am to return to the GRCC offices for a networking lunch, short talks from market organisers within the county and further information on regulations to bear in mind if you are setting up a market. The event will draw to a close at 2pm.

If you would like to attend, or require more information, please contact Helen Richards helenr@grcc.org.uk01452 528491. If you would prefer to join us for part of the morning or meet us at Toddington, please get in touch.
