Hatherleigh Market transition
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

February 16, 2018: Clare Tyson the Mayor writes By the time you read this we will be approaching March and close to Vicks Auctioneers hanging up their gavel! I write this on 15th Feb and the situation as understood today is: • The Tuesday market stalls (indoor and out) will be continuing as usual in the market area selling its array of goods and delicious local produce (the indoor may move into the larger sheep pens building). • The fur/feather auction will move to continue its sales in the old Natwest bank building until further notice, selling eggs/poultry equipment, plants & produce, and other items (no animals as a temporary measure). • Ruby Country will manage the market stalls. Contact Charles Dumpleton for more information. • There will be a catering unit onsite and refreshments are still available as usual at the Old Schools & Methodist Church coffee mornings, and town café. • Kingswood Homes and the working party are meeting to discuss transitional arrangements. They are keen to ensure the market continues as they see it as an asset for selling their new houses. • Kingswood Homes have not yet submitted their planning application. When they do there will be further opportunities to submit your comments. Further updates will follow. Clare Tyson Town Mayor
