Market is not vibrant

First published in Salisbury Letters

WHAT a miserable disappointment the new market is. All that money wasted.

Last week we read in the Journal about the market traders’ latest protest. Should not every effort be made to help them and small businesses there? It is not the glowing scene of a happy market we were led to expect after the reconstruction of the surface with months of disruption and loss of trade.

  • Where is this glowing Venus we were promised? The Market Place looks as dull as ditch water.

This was clearly shown in your photograph last week with the market traders.

After 100 years of taking lorries, wagons and carts onto the market, surely they should still be entitled to do so?

Should not every assistance be given to all the small businessmen who trade there, especially after these months of disruption?

I have already made comment elsewhere regarding the Market Square and feel a sense of frustration that we have ended up with a non entity, featureless, unattractive eyesore and a blot on the landscape as far as design and finished product is concerned. Why do we allow these so called experts to desecrate any area of historic attraction to the visitor???? NUF SAID!!!!
