JIM'S 'OLD' IDEA

January 11 2013.

'Young' Jim Skinner writes, reminding us of an old idea that may well be worth another look. Do you remember the old market? Would it work now?


I continue to read all kind of comments regarding the dilapidated state of Newhaven Town Centre and I'm sure everybody is right to a degree in what has gone and is going wrong.

The only comment I would make is that the undercover Sunday market we used to have close to the station was the one thing that bought people from all round the district into the town. It was always heaving. Is it not possible to suggest the same at the top, (and most depressing,) end of the high street, and preferably not just on a Sunday?

I understood the reason for the original all-weather market closing was opposition from (some) local traders. Well they have pretty much disappeared now as we know, so I would say this would be all gain and no pain.....
