BURY MARKET WELCOMES ITS 1,000TH COACH OF THE YEAR

bury-markets-1000th-coachOne thousand coaches have now visited Bury Market this year bringing visitors from all over the UK and abroad. The 1,000th coach came from Barnsley, South Yorkshire and is home to Gee Vee Travel, a tour operator which frequently schedules coach trips to Bury Market. Gee Vee is a family-run business and has been running tours and day excursions since 1984.

The Deputy Mayor of Bury, Councillor Sharon Briggs, presented driver Melvin Clayton with a certificate commemorating this milestone, and all his passengers received a free Bury Market shopping bag.

Andrew Heyes, Bury Markets manager, said: “The support we have from coach companies is fantastic and we try to make their visit to us as pleasant an experience as possible.”

NEW CASH MACHINE FOR THE MARKET

market-free-cashShoppers need never run out of cash on Bury Market thanks to the installation of an ATM cash machine. The ATM is located in the entrance to the market hall, next to Katsouris and Kids Connection. Customers will not be charged for using the ATM, which has been installed by DC Payments.

Councillor Sandra Walmsley, cabinet member for resource and regulation, said: “Bury Market has such a huge range of stalls and goods that customers may find themselves running short of cash. Having an ATM on site is something that market visitors have been asking about for a long time, and we’re delighted that we’ve now been able to install one, which people can use without being charged. We are determined to keep Bury Market as one of the top attractions in the whole of the North West.”

NEW PUBLIC TOILETS

New public toilets have been built next to the subway at Angouleme Way, behind Chadwick’s black pudding stall. They are free of charge, and will be open on full market days (Wednesday, Friday and Saturday).

Councillor Sandra Walmsley, cabinet member for resource and regulation, said: “The many thousands of visitors who come here each week expect, quite rightly, top quality toilets and we know that these new facilities will be very welcome. This investment, along with others on the market, will help ensure that the famous Bury market will continue to go from strength to strength.”
