Anglo/French Street Market 14th/15th May
ANGLO/FRENCH STREET MARKET, BEXHILL – organised by Bexhill 100 Motoring Club
This weekend’s chilly weather did not deter shoppers from enjoying a taste of France brought by the popular Anglo/Continental Street Market. Devonshire Road was lined with a record number of colourful stalls, offering a wide variety of goods.
The French stallholders provided their usual tempting array of bread, pastries, crepes, cheeses, soaps and other treats; and the UK traders gave shoppers the opportunity to sample their individually crafted gifts, ranging from wonderful hand made jewellery, pottery, jams, chutneys, soft furnishings and beautiful home grown plants and flowers. Bexhill 100 Motoring Club, who marshalled and organised the event, were displaying a selection of their members; classic cars at either end of the market.
Behind the scenes, Elva Car Recovery were on standby to remove any vehicles which may have been parked illegally and the Bexhill 100 team were in attendance from 5.00 am each day to ensure the street was clear for the market traders. Bexhill 100 Motoring Club would like to pass on their appreciation to Keir staff, who cleaned and swept the street before and after the market on both days.
Everyone seemed to be having a great time, and Bexhill 100 look forward to the next market, which is scheduled for September 17th and 18th.
Bexhill 100 Motoring Club took over the running of the market for the benefit and enjoyment of the town, and all profits will go to locally based community projects or charities. To date, the Club has raised some £41,500 for charity from the proceeds of their annual car shows and the French Market. (Photograrphs by Dave Scott)
