Festive Cheer at Gisburn Market

Festive Cheer at Gisburn Market

Shoppers and traders got into the festive spirit at Gisburn Christmas Market held on Saturday 14 December at the village’s Festival Hall. A great range of local produce was on offer including Ian Scott’s selection of game from West Marton and rare breed pork and dairy from Gazegill Organics at Rimington. There were some delightful hand made treats and gifts for Christmas and hot food from Paythorne based company Que Fresco.

The Women’s Institute ran a cafe, tombola and raffle, and entertainment was provided by local band “Silent Laughter”, made up of Clitheroe Grammar School girls Maddie Paige, Anna Marshall, Julia Johnstone and Lucy Yates.

Barnoldswick based stove manufacturers ESSE sponsored the event and brought in one of their electric range stoves on which demonstration chef Steve cooked roast turkey and chocolate brownies.

Festival Hall secretary David Waters said “This was the first Market we have organised so we were all really excited about it. It was a lot of hard work but the traders put on some fantastic displays and we had a good footfall of customers throughout the day. I just want to thank everyone who helped make the market a great success.”

The Farmers' Market is due to be a monthly event at the Festival Hall beginning Saturday 12 April 2014.
