We are sorry to have to announce that the Silverton Street Market Committee has decided to cancel the Street Market which would have taken place on the 7th of August 2021.
Although the situation has been improving with regards to the coronavirus pandemic the committee were unanimous in deciding that there is simply too much uncertainty over how the pandemic will develop over the next few months. Inviting large numbers of people from outside our community to come to the village in August may turn out to be safe, but if we have learnt anything from the past 12 months it is that things can also change very quickly, and change for the worse. Committing to the Street Market now would mean committing large sums of money, money which would otherwise be destined for our local beneficiaries. Given the ongoing uncertainty we feel we must put the safety and security of our village first.
In the meantime, we hope you all stay safe and well, and we will look forward to the return of the Silverton Street Market in 2022.
