It’s never too early for a bit of publicity on Abbey Wood’s latest attraction, the Food and Craft Market.
After the successful launch event in September plans are now well advanced for November’s which will have a Christmas theme; no reindeer or Santa’s grotto but lots of small gifts and mince pies.
September’s event was not helped by Greenwich Council’s reluctance to offer assistance and preferring to quote by-laws and unhelpful policies.
Thanks to Teresa Pearce MP and the Mayor of Greenwich’s interest all of that is now changed and the Royal Borough has been falling over itself in an effort to make the event a regular success story. The first signs of this will be seen on 24th November when the market organisers will allow a small number of stalls to spill out on to the pavement. The majority will continue to be accommodated in the Abbey Arms Car Park.
So thanks to Greenwich Council and the tireless organisers, the second Abbey Wood Food and Craft Market looks like being bigger and better than ever. An hour earlier this time, 11 a.m. until 4.
