Sleaford Town Team are hoping to fund kits for fledgling market traders, particularly to help the Teenage Market, but also other stall holders without the right equipment.

The kits would include a pop-up gazebo, leg weights, folding table, covering and a cash tin. The Team are seeking local sponsors. An entire kit and a bespoke banner to promote the sponsor would cost £250.

Town Team chairman Clare Rayner said: “We would aim to rent these out for £25 (maybe less for the teenagers).”

○ On the evening of July 29, as part of national Independent Retailer Month, Sleaford Town Team are putting on a local shops showcase for town businesses at The Solo Club in the Market Place. People will be invited to browse stands highlighting how much Sleaford has to offer, shops can provide tasters, samples and special offers to encourage visitors to return in future. Each table stand can be reserved for £10. Email: admin@sleafordtownteam.co.uk.
