A NEW Cholsey market had a successful Bank Holiday weekend with almost 200 shoppers visiting the event.

Meadows Morning Market, founded by Janine Wolfe and Becky Kite late last year, took place in The Great Hall in Cholsey Meadows on Saturday, April 30.

A total of 25 stallholders were present offering a wide selection of food, craft and general merchandise products.

Several people were visiting for the first time and had travelled from Goring, Warborough, Didcot, Harwell and Henley.

Herald Series:

Every month the market chooses a charity for visitors to donate to instead of introducing an entrance fee. Almost £65 was raised for the national Fire Fighters Charity last month.

Janine Wolfe, a co-founder, said: “What a great market we had. It bodes very well for the coming year.

“We had an excellent turnout of stallholders which offer our shoppers such a great variety of products. 

“This year we are planning to run a market every last Saturday of the month until the end of November and we are especially looking forward to our Jubilee market.”

The market to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will take place on Saturday, May 28 at The Great Hall.
