Hello to all,
We hope you are all well and looking forward to getting back to the markets.
As some of you now may be aware Sketts will be officially opening from 13th June with Harborne Farmers Market and retail Markets will reopen from the 15th June.
We are looking forward to getting back to providing the towns with all of your great trades however we have had to put extra precautions in place and will need yourselves to do this too in order to make the markets a safe place to shop. Due to these changes I would also like to ask for your cooperation & patience as this is a new venture for everyone. Please email email@example.com for all the details for the market updates on what will be changing & what will need to change/ update by yourselves.
We have also found some Grant Information which may be useful to some stallholders.
The Government is making additional funding available to allow some councils to further support small business. This money is in addition to the Small Business Grants Funds and the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Grants Fund announced last month. This grant is being awarded under Section 1 of the Localism Act 2011 and in relation to the Local Government Finance Act 1988 Section 47 and is for a one off grant related to the COVID-19 pandemic and is only available for the financial year 2020/21.
Every council is different so you will need to search the different councils you trade under but we have found the below for Redditch Traders & Kidderminster Traders
Redditch Council Discretionary Funding information - https://www.redditchbc.gov.uk/business/tax,-funding,-finance/covid-19-help-for-business-and-self-employed.aspx#discretionary
Wyre Forest Discretionary Funding information - https://www.wyreforestdc.gov.uk/dbrgs
Finally if you find the July- Dec dates for food markets
We look forward to working with your all again soon
