50% reduction for stall holders in Moor Market

Market traders in the new Moor market are going to get a 50% reduction in rent in the hope that the new prices will encourage more people to set up stalls.  Family days and other activities are also going to be held during the summer to try and attract more people to the area.  The old Castle Market is currently been knocked down. The number of shoppers expected at the market has never been achieved and because of the recession many stall holders have had to close down.
