IMPORTANT SATURDAY MARKET ANNOUNCEMENT

Following further guidance from our trade organisation and our Health and Safety advisor, we have decided to postpone the re-opening of our Saturday market auctions. This has been a hard decision but one that we have taken to protect our customers, staff, and business. We shall review this decision in early May, which, with the rapid rollout of the vaccination program, will hopefully enable us to start planning positively for future markets.

If you have any enquiries please contact Steven Ellis on 01206842156 and he will be happy to discuss them with you.
