Stalybridge Handmade Market returned once again to the beautiful old market hall in the town last Saturday.  Despite the rain hundreds of people flocked to the market and many left carrying lots of bags of handmade goodies .
The market raises funds for Reuben's Retreat by donating every penny of the 50p admission fee.  So far this year £1500 has been donated which is a great amount.

60 of the best handmade and local produce stalls were on display this time and live music played throughout the day from three local performers including singer and music student Stacy Southward from Hyde.  The theme for this month's market was butterflies and the giant tree sculptures left over from the War Horse production the week before made for a great backdrop. 

 The Civic Mayor of Tameside Councillor Dawson Lane and Mayoress Councillor Jackie Lane were in attendance at 11am to officially declare the market open and the Mayoress couldn't wait to start shopping.

Local company MWL Events, who organise the handmade markets, have recently become winners of Theo Paphitis Small Business Sunday which is a Twitter based accolade.  This is the latest of many achievements for MWL Events and evidence that the company is doing something right.  Katherine, the owner of the business said " we're ambassadors for the handmade industry and we want to make "handmade in Britain" something to be proud of.  We love showcasing new talent and our events are a great platform for many who hope to turn a hobby into a business." 

The Handmade Market will return to Stalybridge Civic Hall on Saturday 27th September from 10am until 3pm.  For further information about MWL Events and details of future events please email enquiries@mwlevents.co.uk
