MARKET traders have been given a one week extension in Queens Square after a petition was signed by more than 1,500 people.
Crawley stallholders had been told the Wednesday market would close for good following the end of trading yesterday (Wednesday).
However, Crawley Borough Council announced the market will definitely run for one more week last night as talks with the market operator are planned. There have been no assurances after then though.
Traders were left angry at the decision to end the Queens Square market, which has run for three years and is more successful than the High Street, because they were only been given a week’s notice by the operator and set up a petition to save it.
