Craft market initiativeHoliday park and marina development, Mercia Marina, has recently held the first of a new programme of monthly food and craft markets, on Easter Monday. The event marked the beginning of the first summer season for the marina’s new Boardwalk shopping and leisure development, which opened last autumn.

Stalls at the market sold a wide range of goods, from jewellery, handbags and scented candles to chutney, samosas and sauces. There were also children’s activities, nature and wildlife trails, and visitors were able to find out more about the few remaining plots available for the marina’s highly acclaimed luxury holiday lodges.

Precise dates for future markets are currently being finalised.
