The popular annual Denton Street Market - which takes place on Monday’s May Bank Holiday - will this year have a VE Day theme.

There will be more than 100 traders filling the streets of the village from 10am until 4pm and they have been invited to wear wartime costumes.

In addition, there will be a special wartime display in St Andrew’s Church.

Organisers promise the usual entertaining blend of village produce, children’s entertainment, charity stalls, bric-a-brac, colourful plants and all manner of other market stalls with food being a special feature with teas in the village hall, hot bacon and sausages and a marquee selling rolls and drinks in the school yard.

Road closures swing into operation at 5am, affecting Church Street and Park Lane with the area around the church, school and parkland all hosting stalls and entertainment. Visitors are asked to park in signed car parks.

Proceeds from the village event, which raised a record £11,000 last year, are divided between the village hall, the school and church funds and other village good causes.
