Thanks to funding awarded to West Lindsey District Council, Caistor Market Place will see improvement, which include new street furniture and equipment to support market stall holders.

The District Council was awarded a share of the Reopening High Street Safely (RHSS) / Welcome Back Fund (WBF) scheme via the UK Government and the European Regional Development Fund. This fund is to help boost the look and feel of high streets.

The funding will make a huge difference to Market Place, where new bins and cycle racks will be installed as well as other measures including new picnic benches. There will also be a new outdoor information board installed that will provide visitors and local residents with details of events and activities.

Caistor Town Council intends is looking to invest part of the funding for 10 tables, 10 gazebos, and also a canopy over the market equipment storage area.

Carl Thomas, Caistor town clerk, has said he is delighted to welcome the additions to the town. He said: “The improvements to Caistor, brought thanks to this funding, will continue to enhance the town for residents, visitors and businesses. Many people work hard to make Caistor so welcoming and the improvements being made enforces this work.”

The market square comes alive each week on a Saturday when market traders. The market organiser, Coun Jayne Bowman has welcomed the news.

She said: “Caistor and the surrounding villages have an amazing wealth of local produce and crafts. The new market tables and gazebos will enable people from our community to bring their wares to market without the need to purchase or transport the bulky tables, plus the gazebos will offer protection from the sun and rain. We are very keen to promote and support our local traders and reduce the carbon footprint in this vital step to regenerate the local market.”
