Oswestry Markets kick off #LYLM2015 in glorious sunshine

To support the national Love Your Local Market campaign Oswestry Town Council offered stalls for a “tenner” to encourage new potential traders to use the market.  

Stalls were also made available for local charities, whilst there were also stalls run by North Shropshire College, The Centre, The Marches School, Maesbury Metals and lots more, all of which did very well on the day.  There was also live entertainment, giveaways and competitions to help celebrate the occasion.  

Both the Mayor and Councilor Hawksley met with all the traders and gave reusable market bags away to various customers.  We also had a timely visit from a Manchester based coach trip following the personal invites made to the operators at the start of the year.
