A lot of hard work has been put into making the fortnight a great success. At the outset we pledged to involve at least 200 markets and offer 1,000 new pitches. As I write this article I am not sure that the targets have been achieved but, based on the feedback from our membership and the enthusiasm shown by markets around the country, then we will be very close to our objectives.
I know that some markets are not taking part. Obviously they will have their own reasons for making this decision but I have to question their motives for providing a market service. Given the publicity markets received from the Portas Report and the subsequent encouragement given by Government to Love your Local Market and National Market Day, there is no logical reason why a market should not be involved. If we are not interested in getting new traders and getting support for our markets, then is there any wonder that a number of our markets are on the decline.
The launch of National Market Day is taking place at Old Spitalfields Market, London and it will be a great delight to see Young Enterprise Traders and First Pitch traders demonstrating their enthusiasm for market trading. The event at Old Spitalfields will provide a focus for the fortnight of events that is to follow and we will be announcing, at the launch, the final figures of markets and new pitches that have been committed.
