BARKWAY's annual market will return on May 20.

Some 5,000 visitors are expected to visit the fund-raising event organised by the village hall committee.

Last year's market had to be cancelled due to a torrential downpour.

There will be about 200 stalls, ranging from crafts to plants and bric-a-brac, and children's entertainment and music.

All proceeds will help keep the village hall maintained and to subsidise its use by the local community.

Ros Richardson, fund-raising chairman, said: "This is the 80th anniversary of the village hall. We are hoping to replace windows and there is some general maintenance that needs doing, so we are hoping for a successful market."

The market will be held from 10am to 4pm and admission is £1.

- Anyone interested in having a market stall should call Marian Murrphy on 01763 849073.
