Shoppers urged to show their support for local business at special bank holiday market

Leamington Editorial 27th May, 2021   0

SHOPPERS are urged to show their support for local businesses at a special market this bank holiday weekend.

The Kenilworth Open Day Market will be taking place in Talisman Shopping Centre on Saturday (May 29) from 10am to 3pm.

It will feature some 25 stalls including local traders, arts and crafts stalls and community groups.

Chair of Kenilworth Town Centre Working Group Michael Coker said: “As lockdown continues to ease we are looking to encourage the community to return to the town centre and support local shops and services.

“It’s important that we get trade in Kenilworth back to normal as quickly, but as safely, as possible. The market will host some fantastic local traders and other important community organisations, such as the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and the Allotments Association.

“It’s set to be a great event at the heart of the bank holiday weekend and the next step in a move back to normality for the town centre.”

Free car parking will be available in Warwick District Council car parks alongside free safety checks for cyclists and a coffee voucher.

The event is being organised by Kenilworth Town Council and managed by CJ’s Events Warwickshire.

It will also mark the launch of Kenilworth’s Naturewatch week which is organised by the Town Council’s Climate Change Group.

The week will feature free nature walks and events in and around the town for families to enjoy during the school half-term break.
