East Lindsey District Council has called on residents to support their local market and vote in the Great British Market Awards.
Voting is now open and residents can show their support by voting for the markets, including Spilsby’s weekly market.
The awards are organised by the National Associations of British Market Authorities (NABMA) and recognises the best markets throughout the country across a range of awards, including Best Food Market, Best Indoor Market and Britain’s Favourite Market.
Residents can vote for their favourite market by going to the NABMA website before entries close on November 30, 2019.
District Council Portfolio Holder for Market Towns and Rural Economy, Councillor Adam Grist, said: “The Great British Market Awards give us a chance to recognise and reward the role the markets play in attracting visitors to the area. It’s also an opportunity to say thank you to the fantastic traders we have in East Lindsey for the tireless work they put in to making our markets special. I’d encourage everyone to get involved and vote for their local market in the Favourite Market Award.”
Spilsby’s market has shown small signs of a revival over the past few months, mainly due to the work of Spilsby Town Council, who have been working with businesses to increase the number and variety of stalls.
