New weekly market in Street

Shoppers in Street, Somerset, can rejoice, as a new weekly market is set to launch later this month.

 The new market is set to launch on Thursday 14 June with the stalls trading weekly in the High Street and Farm Road on alternate weeks from 9am to 4pm. On the first Thursday of the month, the market will run in the afternoon/evening running from 1pm to 8pm.

 Cllr Nigel Taylor, Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhood Services and Community Health, said: “We hope that this market is going to offer something a little different for shoppers, it’s the first time that Mendip has run a regular evening market.

 “The weekly market alternating between Farm Road and the High Street will be an added bonus to the retail experience already available in Street and we believe it will become a well-established Mendip Market, adding to the ones already run in Frome, Glastonbury, Shepton Mallet and Wells each week.”

 The market will host of mix of stalls, from everyday basics to artisan food and treats to tempt everyone, familiar stalls from other Mendip markets will be present but the team are looking for new traders to add to the mix.

 The markets team are always looking for traders who can offer something different at their markets, for the Street market the team are keen to hear from producers of good food. If you are interested in becoming a trader, please contact the council’s market team on 0300 303 8588 and ask to speak to the markets officer or email markets@mendip.gov.uk

Parkrun in Street

Hi local Club/local parkrun

We have some exciting news for the local running community.  I am writing to all local clubs and parkruns.

As you may be aware Street parkrun in Somerset starts this coming Saturday.

The core team, Land owners and funders have invested a lot of time and effort into bringing the event to fruition.

UK wide, Inaugural parkruns have become a phenomenon and this is great but numbers can swell to over 600 when the core team is at its most inexperienced and volunteers pool at its smallest.  Inaugural seekers will come from all over the UK.  In addition, funders and Land owners may be present to watch.

We would kindly request you ask your club members not to run the first event but celebrate Street parkrun at the second event on 12th May. If your club members/parkrunners are very keen to be present at the first event, please can they help by volunteering. They need to register at www.parkrun.com, if they have not already done so, and email streetoffice@parkrun.com.
