Have your say on town market

AN appeal has been made to the residents of Eckington for ideas on how to improve the town’s market - which is the second largest in North East Derbyshire.

The request has been made by Eckington Parish Council which says it is continuing to invest in the market.

Coun Jacqueline Ridgway said in the council’s newsletter: “We are looking for your ideas to improve the market and hope you will come on board to support this initiative.

“It does not matter how zany or off the wall your contribution is because we will take it into account.

“So help us build Eckington market into the best market around and something to be proud of.”

Residents with ideas on how the market can be improved should contact Coun Ridgway on 01246 430035.

The market is held each Friday in the Market Street precinct.
