Whitehill Bordon’s new market is hailed a success
On September 8, 2009
Whitehill Bordon’s new weekly market kicked-off on Thursday and has been hailed a success by organisers.
The market has given a boost to the town and is one of many new initiatives which will be happening now that Whitehill Bordon has been awarded Eco-town status.
The market, called Prod Grow, was organised by the Whitehill Bordon Town Partnership and will run every Thursday until Christmas.
The town’s new event space was transformed into a bustling community facility for the day as residents rolled-up to buy the produce.
Some of the items which are offered by the market include locally grown herbs, chutneys, jams, meat, bread, cakes, pies, stuffed olives and cheeses.
Bill Wain, the town’s mayor and the chairman of the Whitehill Bordon Town Partnership, said “The market looked really bright and cheerful.
“I went round all the stalls and chatted to all of the stallholders and there was a good range of products on offer.
“There was a steady stream of people visiting throughout the day and I think shop holders in the Forest Centre saw an increased footfall.
“We now want to get the market known outside the town and attract residents from the surrounding villages into Whitehill Bordon.”
Whitehill Bordon was awarded Eco-town status on July 17 and this status will bring facilities to the town as well as creating a more cohesive community with better shops and opportunities. A massive amount of Government funding has also been announced.
