Kevan attended the launch of the new Market in Chester-le-Street, photographed with Cllr Paul Sexton.

Following a revised tender for the operation of the Market in Chester-le-Street, it will now be operated by Events2gogo on the first Friday and Saturday of the month and by the Craft Fair Company on the other Fridays and Saturdays of each month. Under the new contract there will no longer be a Tuesday Market in Chester-le-Street.

Kevan said:

“It is good to see interest in the market and I hope that the new operators will be able to breathe new life into the Market and help to bring more people in to Chester-le-Street.

Further information about the new operators of the market are available on their Facebook Pages at Events2gogo and the Craft Fair Company.
