Forecast bad weather has cancelled the Christmas markets planned for Spalding and Stamford today (Sunday).

Spalding town centre manager Dennis Hannant contacted traders shortly before 6.30pm yesterday, saying the Spalding Christmas market was being called off due to expected high winds – gusts of 30-45mph – and rain.

He said he had spoken to the council’s market inspector, Mike Knight, who agreed with the decision and told him that planned markets for Bourne and Stamford had also been cancelled – but the Spalding Guardian has now been told Bourne’s market went ahead yesterday (Saturday).

Mr Hannant told the traders: “I will look into the possibility of re-scheduling next week and let you know the outcome.”
