I tried commenting on the story about the Town Hall in Ilkeston holding weddings and the market traders being unhappy and figured I would email my thoughts in too.
I actually have a suggestion for the council..... Seeing as Bath Street is ‘supposed to be’ pedestrianized, why don’t they have the market in the market place and then going down Bath Street instead of all crammed in one place in the Market Place?
It would encourage more people to go down Bath Street, using other shops.
People seem to be so quick to complain that one move is going to destroy their business, that they don’t seem to think of a way round it.
