Wellingborough Market receives a boost from the BID’s Beach Event

Published Thursday, 21 July 2016

The BID will be bringing their beach event to the Market Square between 6 and 27 August. The event, which is now in its fourth year, gives visitors to Wellingborough the chance to experience the seaside in the town centre. This year’s event ‘Coast on the Cobbles’ provides an excellent opportunity for the council and Wellingborough Norse to work with the BID to attract new traders and promote the market.

The event promises to be even bigger and better than previous years and the council will be supporting the event by supplying Punch & Judy entertainment for the four Saturdays the beach is on; encouraging and enlisting new traders to the market for the beach and beyond and assisting with the promotion of the event.

In order to ensure the safety of children and pedestrians visiting the beach, it will be necessary to suspend the use of eight of the eleven parking bays (of which six are for disabled users) on the market. For the duration of the event, blue badge holders are advised that they will be able to park as usual on yellow lines for a maximum period of three hours provided they clearly display both their badge and clock and don’t cause an obstruction. Signs will be put up shortly to give advance warning that these spaces will be temporarily suspended.

Anyone interested in becoming a trader on Wellingborough Market should contact Wellingborough Norse on 01933 234520 or visit www.wellingborough.gov.uk/market .
