Coun Charmaine Morgan says…
I’d just like to thank everyone personally who were involved in organising the Grantham Christmas Market and lights this year, those present on the day, some from 5:30am sweeping snow, to those in the soggy freezing rain later, some both, and those behind the scenes.
It was wonderful to see the joint working between SKDC, Charter Trustees, voluntary groups, Centrebus, superb acts, local businesses and stall holders. Oldrids Downtown provided a lovely hamper for the best decorated stall.
A particular thanks must go to the elves who compared on stage with great humour and energy throughout the entire event and to the Mayor Cllr Whittington for his excellent short speech.
It would mean nothing without the support of our great community who joined us despite the snow and freezing rain.
On 2nd December we held our second Drop-In session in the Mayor’s Parlour regarding Grantham Market. We had over 30 visitors. As we continue to undertake our Public Consultation on Grantham Market, the Christmas Fayre showed, with the right focus, what a great community asset our market can be.
