Good weather and great attractions combined to attract thousands of people to Villemomble Square and the Droylsden Centre. As I said at the time, it often seemed as though half the town was there.
This year’s market – again organised with the help of Droylsden Town Team – opens on Wednesday, April 1, and continues until Saturday, April 4. Like last time there will be lots of food, fun, entertainment and activities.
We’ll have stalls in the town centre, a licensed bar, and an ice rink. Youngsters can look forward to funfair rides and a big wheel, and there will be live entertainment from the stage.
Easter, of course, is first and foremost a Christian festival and a service organised by Droylsden Churches Together will be at the heart of the four-day market. It starts at 12.30pm on the Saturday. Later that afternoon we’ll have a bonnet competition.
This is only a brief account of what will be on offer. Other attractions are being organised but I’m sure I’ve provided enough to let you know there will be plenty to do for people of all ages.
What’s more, Droylsden is very easy to get to. Just catch the tram in Ashton and in a couple of stops you’ll be at the heart of the action.
It promises to be a great few days and I look forward to seeing you there. Just keep your fingers crossed for the weather
