A TRADER has accused bosses at Winchester Cathedral of being Scrooges after he was banned from handing out leaflets to promote his business to festive market stall holders by the city’s ice-rink.
The D & G Hardware shop in St George’s Street has for the past four years offered its services to traders running the Christmas market stalls in Cathedral Close.
But this year Toby Roberts, owner of D & G Hardware, says he was told by cathedral staff he cannot do so.
“It’s just ridiculous,” he said.
“We were just there in a funny way supporting the market and to make a little bit out of it as well.
“I thought this was a time of goodwill to all men, but I don’t feel very much of that.”
For the last four years, Mr Roberts has spoken to stallholders on the opening day of the market and at the mid-way changeover, to let them know about the services his store offers, and to give out leaflets with the details.
