VIDEO: Denton Street Market success helps local causes
Organisers of Denton Street Market say the annual event was another success despite the changeable weather.
Crowds visited the market on Bank Holiday Monday morning and browsed the varied street stalls, selling everything from bedding plants to glassware, hot dogs to flowers.
Debbie Nicholls, of the organising committee, said a downpour in the afternoon was the only disappointment of the day.
She said: “Despite a damp afternoon we have enjoyed another successful market. It was fantastic in the morning. Well up on expectations.
“Our traders did really well. All the food and the hot dogs sold really well and the hall, school and marquee were busy.
“I think people came early because of the forecast and we are grateful to everybody for coming along. There was an absolute deluge later on. But we have been very lucky over the years with the weather, but our takings will be slightly down.”
Money raised on the day will go to St Andrew’s Church, the village hall, Denton School fund and other village causes.
The annual market also featured children dancing around the Maypole, Grantham Hearing Dogs for the Blind and birds of prey.
