East Street Market


On Friday 4th April 2008 I visited East Street Market with Val Shawcross and Local Councillors.

East Street Market is important not only for the traders but as a hub for the local community providing good value fresh food. Markets have always been vital to enable newly arrived people in a community to start up their business. The founders of Tesco’s and Sainsbury’s started as market traders.

I am going to be working with GLA representative Val Shawcross, local Councillors Paul Bates, Lorraine Lauder and Abdul Mohamed and the Market Traders Association to ensure the lack of maintenance in East Lane is sorted out.  East Lane needs a facelift.
