Monday market, Greenford Broadway

The two day market is a year long experiment to encourage shoppers to visit the Broadway, as part of the local regeneration effort. Unfortunately it has led to protests on the part of some shopkeepers who believe that stallholders who sell similar goods will take trade away from them. My personal opinion is that a market is a good idea but it will have to be carefully managed and promoted to have a positive effect on Greenford. It will be interesting to see how it develops, at the very least I hope the negativity and aggression shown towards those running the market by some people will dissipate.
