Strong winds force cancellation of Warwick Market

STRONG winds have forced the cancellation of Warwick Market.

Organisers CJ’s Events have cancelled tomorrow’s (Saturday February 22) market as winds are expected to reach speeds of 40mph.

It comes just days after Kenilworth Market was cancelled on Thursday.

Spokesman Jamie Walker said: “While no weather warning has been put in place, gust speeds are reaching 40mph throughout tomorrow, as forecasted by the Met Office.

“This is not an ideal situation and we appreciate cancelling two markets in one week has a knock on effect to ourselves, traders and visitors, but we will not put life at risk to all involved.

“Stalls can become very dangerous in strong winds or gusts, so safety is a priority. We know many traders and visitors will be upset by this decision, but hope you can understand safety must take priority.”
