WINSLOW farmers’ market will take place on Bank Holiday Monday after organisers decided it should not take place on New Year’s Day.

The market usually takes place on the first Sunday of each month.

Town council spokesman Bridget Bradford said: “We thought we would give all the traders, volunteer helpers and loyal shoppers the benefit of a lie-in after celebrating the arrival of 2012.

“For this month only the market will take place on Monday January 2, 10am-2pm.

“The market is run entirely by volunteers and all modest profits are ploughed back into local causes such as the new Christmas lighting and the renovation of the gates at the St Laurence Room.

“Winslow farmers’ market has and continues to be an astounding success story that is revitalising Winslow’s High Street.

“Thames Valley Police’s community safety team will be using the community stall to talk to the public and offer advice on keeping themselves and their property safe.

“There will be music from a local folk duo to make the morning go with a swing.”

The market will feature 15 stalls.
