A CHRISTMAS market is being staged at East Morton.

A wide range of goods will be on offer at the event – in the village institute on Sunday, November 21, between 1pm and 4pm.

Stalls will be selling everything from fresh Christmas wreaths and festive decorations to clothing, jewellery, books and cards, skincare products, soaps and bath bombs.

The market is being organised by former village resident, Maria Richardson.

She said: “Last year was tough for local, small businesses that normally rely on income from attending fairs and markets – especially those that depend on seasonal products at this time.

“Although some larger markets are running this year, a lot of smaller events aren’t.

“I was amongst those disappointed with the lack of such events so decided to arrange my own!

“After posting a couple of messages on social media I was quickly inundated with requests from people wanting a stall, proving that there was indeed demand. Please come along and support local businesses.”
