CHARGES for holding farmers’ markets in Henley have been increased by just five per cent after traders warned they could go elsewhere.
The town council makes a loss on the markets, which are held monthly on a Thursday and quarterly on a Sunday in Market Place.
Last month, the town and community committee recommended a 45 per cent rise but a meeting of the full council on Tuesday heard that the stallholders would not accept this.
Town clerk Mike Kennedy said: “It is quite clear, having spoken to the organiser, that she is not prepared to pay an increase of 45 per cent. She made it very clear to me that the farmers’ market would close.”
He said that council officers had negotiated a compromise and that the five per cent increase from £200 to £210 per market would be in line with inflation.
It was also agreed that stallholders should put up and dismantle their own awnings for the four Sunday markets.
