    " A spokesman for Cheshire West and Chester Council commented: “The authority regrets that it has no alternative but to shut the markets on safety and security grounds and has informed traders accordingly. "

    Of course, the market has to close. This highly hazardous trading process is fraught with such unacceptably high risk that it would be an act of gross negligence to do any thing else.

    Total rot, if it was your livelihood that was being denied then you would soon keep the market open. Safety & Security my eye.

    The market traders work very hard to provide excellent value to the local folk, it is a disgrace to close it down, even for a few hours."

Market's cafe to be shut on Thursday due to industrial action

First published in News

NORTHWICH market’s cafe will be closed on Thursday due to a one-day strike by public sector workers over pay.

The national strike will force markets across Cheshire to close as the majority of workers responsible for the opening, security, and cleaning of the markets will be participating in the strike.

Usually only the cafe at Northwich market is open on a Thursday but this will remain closed, although the market will be open as normal on Tuesday and Friday.

Winsford market will not be affected by the dispute.

A spokesman for Cheshire West and Chester Council commented: “The authority regrets that it has no alternative but to shut the markets on safety and security grounds and has informed traders accordingly.

“We apologise to members of the public and traders for any inconvenience caused.”
