Time to Step Aside

Local Living – which has held the license to operate Alnwick Markets since 2006 – has informed staff and traders that it will stand aside as market operator at the end 2019.

“We have been in discussion about succession planning with the Town Council and with Northumberland Estates for quite some time,” says Philip Angier, Chair and Acting Manager of Alnwick Markets. “Anne Howie, our Treasurer and I have both served a senior members of the Local Living management team for over a decade, largely in a voluntary capacity, and we each want more time next year for family and other interests.”

“The Town Council hopes that regular street markets will continue,” says Cllr Martin Swinbank. “We have a beautiful and distinctive Market Place which we want to be a centre of attraction for local residents and tourists alike.”

Northumberland Estates will be beginning the process of advertising to find another market operator for Alnwick Market.

Anne Howie says: “Managing the finances for Local Living has become increasingly challenging. But it has also been very rewarding and has brought us in contact with many delightful people – traders, officials, local residents and visitors.”

Local Living will continue to operate regular Saturday markets, Farmers’ Markets and the Christmas Market (7th Dec) as normal up to and including 21st December
