NAILSEA’S community market has been given a cash boost by Nailsea Town Council.

A new market to promote new businesses, voluntary organisations and charities is being set up in the town after the council was given £2,352 from North Somerset Council’s High Street Innovation Fund.

The community market will run alongside Nailsea Farmers’ and Craft market with the aim of bringing more businesses and shoppers into the area.

At its meeting on Wednesday, the town council’s planning and environmental committee agreed to recommend the town council contributes £1,000 towards the scheme.

The cash will pay for a canopy, tables and advertising banners to kick-start the market.
