At an Extra-Ordinary meeting of South Molton Town Council held today (Wednesday 3rd June 2020) Town Councillors voted  to resume with the weekly Saturday and Thursday Pannier Markets commencing on Saturday 6th July.

Although under Government guidelines the markets could have resumed from Thursday 18th June, Councillors chose to go with a start date of July which brings the recommencement of the Market in line with others including Barnstaple Pannier Market and Tavistock Market. It also allows time for further preparation of the building to comply with government restrictions.

In the coming ten days, further details on how the Pannier Market will operate will be posted on the Town Council website (www.southmoltontowncouncil.co.uk) as it will not be ‘business as usual’ owing to social distancing requirements that will see a number of restrictions introduced to comply with Government regulations.

Commenting on the decision reached by Cllrs, Town Clerk Andrew Coates said, ‘This is the first step to getting life back to something approaching normal. We’ve a lot of work still to do and of course we need to speak with all our traders to ensure they are ready to begin trading from the Pannier Market whilst  having the necessary PPE in place for their safety and that of the Pannier Market customers’
