Cancellation of our Markets
27 March 2020
It is with heavy heart that the Concord Rotary Club has decided to cancel our Concord Farmers Market until further notice. There are two reasons:
We are aware that the Government does currently permit outdoor farmers markets however we are not confident that we can effectively manage the social distancing requirement. Other farmers markets have made a similar decision.
The second reason is that many of the team of Rotary volunteers that manage the market are over 60. As you will know, the over 60s are at greater risk of serious illness from infection with Covid-19 and we have a duty of care to keep them safe.
We appreciate our decision will have an impact on our stallholders, their staff and families, but we are committed to re-opening the market when we can guarantee everyone's safety
We value see our customers are our markets and will be really look forward to seeing you back our markets when we reopen
