High Street Market Will Open Tomorrow – Shaftesbury’s Mayor Shares Lockdown Plans

Shaftesbury’s High Street market will open for essential good sales tomorrow, says Shaftesbury’s mayor Andy Hollingshead.

The refillable cleaning products store, Myrtle and Marigold, is not considered essential and can’t trade. The High Street pedestrianisation, introduced to allow shoppers to safely socially distance by walking on the roadway, will continue.

Andy says the town council is ready to respond to the challenges ahead but feels that residents are approaching this lockdown differently, because we’ve been through this before.
