Dear Sir/ Madam
I'm sorry to inform you the Christmas Market event in Bakewell this year will not go ahead. This is completely due to red tape and the council taking so long in giving us a decision on whether we could run the Xmas market for 6 days. Three days in Nov and three days in Dec where proposed . Unfortunately the councils decision was only to allow us to operate for two days in Nov and left it much too late in making that decision. We felt in these circumstances and at this late stage the event would run at a loss and would be almost impossible to put on in the manner and scale I had proposed in such a short time. Regards. Shaun Hogg (organiser)
