Old Mill car park is now home to a thriving community of traders and shoppers, which also uses entry donations to help charities connected to animal welfare, cancer research and organ donation.

An event spokesman said: “This is a new market promoting the local shopping and creating a new space for the community to share Saturdays together.

“Every week the public can enjoy different activities such as building your own succulents, face-painting, getting a henna tattoo or relaxing with a professional head and shoulder massage.

“Overall a great weekly event that will hopefully last with the support of the community.”
