Chairman of the Lower Sunbury Business Community has forwarded the following email for publication on the LOSRA Website:
"It is with sadness that we have to announce the Annual LOSBC Christmas Market will not be held this year on Tuesday 14th December as planned.
There has not been enough interest from stall holders to exhibit at this years event."
This years market was due to take place on the same day as the popular 'Carols on the Meadow' event which attracts a regular following of local residents to the village.
Dennis van Wonderen, chairman of the LOSBC commented: 'It's very sad that this years market has had to be cancelled.
The difficult economic trading conditions are certainly a contributing factor towards the cancellation as there was insufficient interest from traders to exhibit.
The LOSBC is continuously striving to attract shoppers to the village and encourage residents to shop locally. Without the customers, the village wouldn't have
any shops! The event would have celebrated it's third year and a lot of the residents were looking forward to the festive gathering to kick off the Christmas celebrations.
Whilst this is a small setback, we will keep chipping away at different opportunities to keep the village shops alive!'
