PopUp Market Launch in Wellington
17th May at 10am at Market Street Entrance, Wellington Market
Markets have been at the heart of British life and commerce for thousands of years and century after century they keep on drawing people into towns and cities. This is the first market of its kind in the region, designed to provide a modern sales platform for local entrepreneurs, retailers, creatives and free agents while attracting more customers to town and helping kick-start the ‘High Street Revival’ that’s so badly needed in our local market towns.
This new ‘PopUp Pitch’ market has been backed 100% by the Wellington Market Company, funded by private investment and generously sponsored by Wellington Town Council & HomeBase at Wrekin Retail Park. PayPal are backing our mobile payment systems, providing free card readers and coming up from London to Wellington to train us all in the new technology. A brilliant local web developer is putting PopUp Pitch online, The Mayor of Wellington, students from New College & a great team from HomeBase helped us paint our market stands (while it hailed and snowed!) Ian Connor from BITC has been our much-appreciated ‘warrior and ambassador’ and local business owners are providing absolutely priceless help, materials and support.
People Power at its finest!
