The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

THOU­SANDS gath­ered in New Nor­folk’s High St on Sat­ur­day as the New Nor­folk Mar­ket cel­e­brated its first birth­day.

Mar­ket op­er­a­tor Jes­sica Cos­grove praised the com­mu­nity for mak­ing the day a suc­cess.

“I would like to thank the amaz­ing stall­hold­ers, mem­bers of our com­mu­nity and lo­cal Busi­nesses who have sup­ported the mar­ket in its first year,” she said.

“All to­gether you re­ally are the heart and soul of our mar­ket, and have made it the suc- cess it has be­come. The ca­ma­raderie we all have, the wel­com­ing at­mos­phere, and a va­ri­ety of fab­u­lous prod­ucts show­cases this is just the be­gin­ning of great things to come.”

At a mar­ket packed with stalls, live mu­sic and arts and crafts, a large crowd looked on and sang Happy Birth­day as a cake was cut at mid­day.

Ms Cos­grove said the sup­port of new nam­ing rights spon­sor Banjo’s would help sus­tain the mar­ket into the fu­ture.
