Friday offer

New businesses wanting to take advantage of an offer of free market stalls in Ilkeston can apply now.

The Fantastic Fridays scheme will start on January 25, from which start-up businesses will be offered a pitch to sell their products.

Ilkeston’s Town Team will support the new businesses, using £10,000 of Government cash.

Fantastic Fridays will be the last Friday of each month, loosely themed to certain products and services – the first one will be ‘Feel Good Friday’.

Application forms are on the town team website, www.ilkestontownteam.co.uk.
