Christmas cancelled in Ladywell

Ladywell Village Improvement Group writes:

We have reluctantly made the decision to cancel the Christmas Market this year, which was due to take place Saturday 10 December and would have been the fourth annual Ladywell Christmas Market.

Due to the continued works at our current venue, the forecourt at Ladywell Station, the most recent advice from Southeastern Rail is that they cannot guarantee the works to be finished in time to hold the market there, the decision has been made to cancel the event.

I am sorry for the delay in getting back to you with this information but we and Southeastern Rail were hopeful until now that the works would be finished in time.

This was a tough decision and it was made in the interest of the Market. At this late stage we could soldier on and put on a market somewhere but we run the risk of it being a sorry one in an unsuitable venue and we don't want to take that risk. Ladywell is on the up and as such deserves the best market we can give it!
