Unfortunately trading conditions so far in 2014 have been very disappointing. We have failed to sell enough goods to cover our overheads and we are in danger of going into debt, which is not allowed under the rules of our not-for-profit co-operative.
So we have reluctantly decided to cease trading with immediate effect, to limit our costs. It is likely that a formal vote to close the market will be taken by the members sometime during July 2014, unless a formula can be found to improve our trading performance.
There will be no markets at Orpington Village Hall on Friday 20th June, or 4th July and possibly thereafter.
Our thanks to all who have supported us over the past 5 years.
