 Press Release: Aveley Christmas Market 2017 - Sunday 10th December 12pm 

It is with sadness and regret that Aveley Village Community Forum, have had to cancel this year's Christmas Market. We too had hoped that the snow, would of added to the atmosphere of the market, however the stall providers could not guarantee, because of forecasted weather that they could return in time to collect and clear the road of stalls in time for the road to be re-opened. 

Therefore, at around 8:30am the decision was made to cancel the market because of the following:

1) Weather conditions at the time and with the forecast not improving over the day.

2)  The stall providers could not guarantee that the stalls would be collected on time for the road to be reopen, if the weather conditions did not improve. Therefore, we could not guarantee reopening the high street at the stipulated road closure notice. We did not want to cause any further inconvenience to the community. Which I am sure you all will understand this.  

It is the first time in the history of the Aveley Christmas Market that this action has been taken and it was a difficult decision by all and we had to work with the information available and regulations regarding the road closure and we are just as disappointed as the rest of the community are. Especially in light of the time and effort that we had invested in arranging the event over the last year.
