Markets in Retford and Worksop now open for trading 08.30 until 13.00 hrs. Retford is open on Thursdays and Saturdays.
The following is an update, released today from BDC, on the strategy towards opening up the Markets to other Traders.
“We will not be re-opening our full markets until we have everything in place for us to manage this safely and in accordance with the COVID-19 secure guidelines. The Government guidance is quite clear (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19/shops-and-branches) and our markets and Health and Safety Team are working through new risk assessments that will allow us to stand more stalls in line with this guidance.
Stalls selling food will continue to trade and we will operate a phased approach to bring other traders back to the market. With shops and banks operating their own queuing systems, we must ensure that people using our town centres can do so as safely as possible. This may mean some changes to the market layout and stalls may not be in their usual locations. Public safety must be our number one priority. We will publish all our risk assessments on our website, so that people can be reassured about the steps we are taking.”
