As always, the success of the Street Market relies on the efforts, donations and hard work put in by the villagers and businesses of Austwick and the surrounding areas.  This year is no different.

The Street Market Committee members are currently looking for volunteers to help in the run up to the event and on the day.  If you can help in anyway and volunteer even a small amount of your time, it really will make a big difference.

Also, if you have any items of unwanted clothing, furniture, gifts or toys, we will be looking for items for various stalls in the run up to the event.  A collection will be arranged a few days before the event but earlier storage can be arranged, just get in touch with our Secretary, Gwen Cleverly, on the number or email below.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
