This year as part of Love Your Local Market #LYLM campaign which should have taken place in May, we were on the search for Your Market Trader of the Year for Boston, #LYLM has been postponed due to covid and launched with the new initiative #mymarket and as part of this we are asking shoppers to vote for their favourite stallholder.
Boston Market is an important focal point for our local community and this award is a great chance for people to nominate the trader who goes the extra mile, sells the best bargains, or has the highest quality goods.
Cllr Chelcei Sharman, Boston Borough Council’s portfolio holder for markets, said: “Our market traders provide a vital service to the community by offering a wide variety of products that are affordable and we want them to get recognition for what they do. Boston’s markets are incredibly important to the council and we are working hard to support them for future generations to come.
“Your Market Trader of the Year competition is a fantastic way for us to celebrate our markets and for local people to get involved. So, I encourage everyone to get nominating!”
The winning trader will receive free advertisement on one of our barrier covers, a hamper, two tickets to Party in the Park 2021, a Market Trader of the Year t-shirt, two markets rent-free, one month’s free parking, one month’s free gym membership and a certificate.
You can vote by completing the online form at https://wh1.snapsurveys.com/s.asp?k=158349629093 or you can pick up an entry form on the Market from 8 July and post to Markets, Boston Borough Council, Municipal Buildings, West Street, Boston, Lincolnshire PE21 8QR.
The competition closes on Friday 31 July 2020.
The winner will be announced as soon after this date as possible, with a feature in the Council news.
