IMPORTANT UPDATE ON TRADING AT WISBECH MARKET PLACE
24 March 2020
CORONAVIRUS / COVID-19 UPDATE
WISBECH MARKET PLACE
Wisbech Town Council has obtained a list of the types of outlets which are deemed by the Government as "essential retail". This includes not only "food" shops but businesses selling hardware items, cycle parts, pet supplies etc.
The Council awaits an update on whether these items may also be sold in the open air, at which time an updated notice will be posted to allow those appropriate additional traders. Car boot trading is cancelled.
