Fears For Future Of Hoyland Market

Monday March 4 2013

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

HOYLAND market is struggling to pull in the crowds - and it's feared that it might fold.

Traders have said that customer numbers had fallen, and high rents are to blame for putting potential stallholders off.

Geoff Crossley has sold cleaning products and toiletries on the market for 43 years.

He said every stall used to be 'jam-packed full' but now about half as many people come to the market.

"There's a big danger the market could go,'' said Geoff. "If you can't sell the stalls, customers won't come because they like to have a look around," he added.

It's thought that the new Tesco that's planned on Market Street would take trade from the market and mean people would not need to come into the town centre.

Back in the 70s-80s my mum used to take me down to the market for all my clothes and all the veg etc.

Niw when I go down there is nothing there and empty stalls make it look untidy and unloved

How mature wedge. In the state of Britain today people are glad of a bargain. If they get rid of the market alot of the traders will loose a days wage. But your either too thick or too young to understand that!!

A tooth (plural teeth) is a undersized, calcified, whitish build ground in the jaws (or mouths) of many vertebrates and habituated to to sever down food. Some animals, explicitly carnivores, also use teeth for the purpose hunting or in place of defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered by gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but to a certain extent of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.

The ordinary make-up of teeth is similar across the vertebrates, although there is considerable converting in their fabric and position. The teeth of mammals drink esoteric roots, and this figure is also initiate in some fish, and in crocodilians. In most teleost fish, how, the teeth are fastened to the outer outwardly of the bone, while in lizards they are fastened to the inner side of the jaw by way of harmonious side. In cartilaginous fish, such as sharks, the teeth are joined by tough ligaments to the hoops of cartilage that form the jaw.
