I was quite smug the other day when I stumbled across the article on the Daily Post website which told about the fears of losing the Caernarfon Market. The reasons given was such 'tat' as the rusty old big wheel and similar events which detract from the Market in town.
I have said this on countless occasions and whoever thought of bringing rubbish like this to our town.... well they should be ashamed of themselves!
The traders warned at the time that it put the Market in jeopardy, but no one listened.
Here is what we reported at the time
and this was back in 2007!!!!
Caernarfon has a heritage and history, bringing inferior "detraction's" like this at the risk of losing either the Heritage status or the Market is ludicrous.
Let's hope that this is now the end of it and we only get quality events in town that doesn't cost our existing businesses their livelihood.
Caernarfon needs its Market, it brings people in to the centre.
We need it just as much as other towns (who welcome their markets), its again down to one or two thinking we don't. Lessons to be learned again perhaps?
