Market plans on the table

Have your say

PLANS for a new Farmers’ Market to take place in Dronfield were due to be examined by town councillors today to decide whether an ancient charter can be altered to allow the event to go ahead.

An application has been lodged for the quarterly market and it is claimed the idea has been supported by local shopkeepers.

The woman behind the bid is Dronfield-woman Lorna Macnamara.

She has told councillors the market would be popular with residents, who currently have to travel to Sheffield or Bakewell in the Peak District to buy produce directly from local farmers.

A decision will be made once the plans have been examined and discussed by councillors.
