Fund raising gigs for market traders

Fund raising gigs are set to take place next month for traders affected by a major fire that ripped through Northwich outdoor market a week ago.

At its height more than 40 firefighters tackled the blaze, with applicances and crews called in from Crewe, Lymm, Ellesmere Port, Nantwich, Sandbach, Widnes, Congleton, Poynton, Audlem and Macclesfield.

Thousands of pounds worth of stock was destroyed.

Organisers set up a Facebook with the aim of getting every pub and cafe in Northwich to host a live music event on Saturday 1st February.

Now, over 60 bands and musicians have come forward to say they will perform, while 25 venues have already agreed to take part.

People are being urged to find out more by joining the Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/606493103516631/.
