Wednesday trading at Nuneaton market affected by high winds

Published on Wednesday, 16th February 2022

Nuneaton Market on Wednesday 16 February is affected by forecast high winds.

Due to the forecast of high winds throughout the day on Wednesday 16 February, Nuneaton market will be operating a reduced market only.

All traders will be given the opportunity to trade from their vehicles, but it is considered that there is an unacceptable level risk to public safety to erect market stalls in such high winds.

Jonathan White, Head of Town Centres, said:

“Our first priority in operating our markets is the safety of traders, our own staff and members of the public.

“As a result, given the forecast storms this evening and tomorrow, we have no choice but to operate a reduce market on Wednesday in Nuneaton.

“Wind speeds are predicted to reach gusts of around 50 mph. Winds of this magnitude make it unsafe to set up the stalls and run market trading as normal.

“This decision has been taken in the interests of public safety, and only after all options were carefully considered.

“We understand the disappointment for both the traders and public, but we hope to operate our regular markets as usual all year round on Wednesday and Saturday in Nuneaton, and on Tuesday and Friday in Bedworth, whenever conditions allow.”
