Shop local is appeal from Spalding market traders who have returned this morning




Stallholders who have returned to Spalding market after three months are appealing to people to shop local.

This morning, traders selling non-essential goods have set-up in the Sheep Market and Market Place for the first time since Christmas.

Non-essential shops, barbers, pubs and cafes enjoyed a busy first day yesterday as lockdown restrictions were eased.
