New dates for Worker Bees markets

Local Stockport-based Worker Bee Markets has been invited to take part in the newly launched Seashell Trust Summer Fair in Saturday 15 June.

As well as their regular events in Bramhall, Gatley and Heald Green, the locally curated artisan markets will be bringing a touch of glamour to the Seashell Trust Summer Fair, which has expanded its remit this year and become a community engagement day, including lots for families to do, a car boot sale and barbecue as well as entertainment on the outdoor stage and quality International streetfood alongside 30 small hand-picked local businesses bringing their handmade crafts and produce to the Worker Bee Market Pop-Up.

Seashell Trust, who are a national charity, are hosting the Summer Fair to help to raise donations to go towards their facilities which support children and young adults with complex learning disabilities and additional communication needs. The services they provide create a happy and secure environment for students to grow, explore and develop, helping them to become more independent and live a fulfilling life. Worker Bee traders will also contribute to the fund-raising.

Worker Bee Markets bring local talented makers and traders to the heart of local communities and will continue its regular events in Bramhall on Sunday 12 May (3rd Bramhall Scout Hut, Linney Road SK7 3JW), in Gatley on Saturday 25 May (Bethany Church 100 Church Road SK8 4NF) and in Heald Green on Sunday 16 June (Nixon's Farm Shop, Bolshaw Road SK8 3PS).

A reputation built up over the past twelve months, means communities are guaranteed fresh produce and quality handmade goods right on their doorstep with the majority of customers walking to events, bringing their families, friends and dogs to enjoy a day out.

To keep you entertained, Bramhall Market-goers will enjoy the return of Des Basterfield, Flat Cap 3 Solo Show bringing great tunes from way back when, whilst Gatley has invited comic and political musician Claire Mooney, often appearing on BBC Radio Manchester, who will be performing throughout the day.
