HUNDREDS headed outside to enjoy the sunshine, a car-free West Street and to pick up a few bargains last Sunday, as Farnham hosted its second Art & Craft Makers Market.
“This is brilliant,” one happy browser said, “it should happen every weekend, I’ve never seen so many folk in West Street before”.
“No cars – lovely. Really lovely. I feel so safe”, another passer-by remarked.
“How about a weekday fruit and veg market?” said another.
Mark Westcott, the independent county candidate for Farnham South who first proposed a West Street market, said: “I was absolutely delighted to see how incredibly successfully the day went.
“If compelling evidence were needed that this section of West Street can be closed once or twice a week, this was it.”
