BUSINESS groups and politicians are teaming up to try to rescue Swindon’s Christmas market after the town centre management firm said it was too late to organise one this year.
In November, InSwindon decided to axe the 2012 event, planned to take place in Canal Walk, after Swindon Council voted to take enforcement action against another of its markets, in Havelock Square, due to a street trading ban which covers most of the town, except for Wharf Green.
The council’s licensing committee plans to lift the prohibition in some streets later this year to enable markets, but Rebecca Rowland, InSwindon’s office manager, says the Christmas market will not go ahead because it is too late to start organising and traders will not come to Wharf Green because of low footfall.
