350 sign petition backing Oxford Christmas Market move
8:40am Thursday 25th October 2012 in News
MORE than 350 people have signed a petition supporting a Christmas Market in Oxford’s Broad Street.
The Christmas Market was cancelled this year after a move to the city centre street from Oxford Castle was refused by the city council.
It came after city centre businesses said it would harm their trade.
For the past three years there has been a Christmas market at the castle, but organisers say the lack of passing pedestrians meant the market was not financially viable in the long term.
Organiser Nicole Rahimi, from Iffley, said there were 200 traders interested in having a stall if the market moved to Broad Street.
The petition is at gopetition.com/petitions/support-the-oxford-christmas-market.html
