Christmas market plan for Wareham unveiled

A CHRISTMAS market will take place in Wareham in December for the first time ever.

Wareham Town Council has been working with other organisations and voluntary groups to deliver a festive street sale aimed at bringing more festive cheer.

The event is being planned for Saturday, December 9, and will be located in North Street, from The Cross to Dollins Lane, from 10am until 4pm.

Traders and street merchants are being offered stalls at the event, which will also see a mix of live music and other entertainment.

Cllr Vera Green, chair of the Amenities Committee, said: “Wareham already has a very successful Christmas In Wareham committee, who organise the town’s Christmas lights, Santa’s Grotto, and Christmas Parade through Wareham, and the town council wanted to compliment these activities and make the whole weekend a festive celebration.

“I have been keen to see a Christmas street market in Wareham for a number of years now, and it’s good to see it finally happen.”

It is hoped the event will boost the Wareham economy and support town trades and artisan suppliers.

    I would have thought South Street was more appropriate thereby giving visitors easy access into the town and car parks if North Street is blocked off it will deter visitors
