Mar­ket is pulling in vis­i­tors from afar

Macclesfield Express - - TIME TRIP - RHI­AN­NON MC­DOWALL

HUN­DREDS of peo­ple turned out for the lat­est Trea­cle Mar­ket.

Or­gan­is­ers said vis­i­tors trav­elled from as far afield as North Wales, Le­ices­ter and Sh­effield.

Plan­ners are now look­ing to the next mar­ket on Sun­day, July 30, when there will be a live per­for­mance from a samba band and 160 stalls.

Plans for the Au­gust event in­clude a ‘beach’ theme with don­key rides.

Jane Munro, from the Trea­cle Mar­ket, said peo­ple travel from miles around to at­tend the mar­ket, which con­tin­ues to be well at­tended each month.

She said: “We en­joyed a re­ally lovely day at Trea­cle last month with vis­i­tors even trav­el­ling from North Wales on a coach, Le­ices­ter, Liver­pool and Sh­effield to wan­der round the mar­ket.

“The church­yard was full of fas­ci­nat­ing stalls about so­cial ac­tion ini­tia­tives called ‘What’s Go­ing On,’ or­gan­ised by HOPE in NE Cheshire.

“We loved the Pop Up Bar from lo­cal bar MASH GURU sell­ing won­der­ful Bre­ton crepes and live music from An­nie’s Saints and Sin­ners, AZ Aloud, Me­gan Glover and Alexis Maclean.”
