Martyn & Linda Davies have decided to take early retirement with immediate effect. The desire to spend time at their new home in Lancashire, on their brand new 57 foot boat and at their villa in Spain, coupled with proposed changes in event formats and provision in Cornwall has led to this decision. Martyn & Linda will also shortly be undertaking a 48,000 km motorcycle trip along the Pan American Highway from Alaska to Argentina and, sadly, no longer have sufficient time or interest to dedicate to the business.
All prospective traders are therefore advised to contact Cathedral City Markets (CIC), Truro City Council and Truro BIDs for future trading opportunities in Truro. This includes all Christmas events and street markets.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the traders and exhibitors who have worked with us at our events since we were formed in 2003. There are hundreds of you, far too many to mention but, without your support we couldn't have achieved what we have. Also grateful thanks to the members of the public who have supported our events in the tens of thousands making the Victorian Market one of the Top Ten Christmas Markets in the UK. It has been a pleasure and a privilege.
By donating Cathedral City Markets to the trading community we are sure that we have left the events industry in Cornwall in a far stronger position than we found it and we are confident that CCM will provide trading opportunities for many years to come and to afford protection to traders from the many chancers, charlatans, incompetents and buffoons who operate in the industry. We are pleased that we have been able to help so many people.
We wish all of our friends, clients and supporters from the public good fortune for the years ahead.
