Please, if you want this market to remain open it is essential attendees follow our Covid rules
Face coverings must be worn by everyone attending the site, at all times.
Notice of the return of vendors subject to social distancing rules: One vendor per business is now allowed to remain in market and see their stock sold provided they maintain social distancing and wear a mask. Sheep vendors may stand in an adjacent alley but not in their pen or in the alley within which the buyers stand. Vendors may pick their sheep or attend to their milking cows. For the dairy, store cattle, stirks and calves, areas will be marked out for Vendors to stand in whilst their stock are being sold. Vendors are not to stand on the stepped tiers of the rings as these areas are reserved for buyers. Whilst wearing a mask vendors are to maintain a minimum of 1m+ distance between themselves and all other market users and staff. Vendors are required to sanitise their hands on arrival and re-sanitise during their stay. Vendors are not to shake hands or make contact with others and are to keep their stay to as short as period of time as possible. Vendors are not to collect a vendor statement printout to therefore reduce congregation at the office counter. All sale results will be emailed at the close of the market. Please ensure your email is on the entry form. If vendors can avoid attending to reduce the pressure on social distancing rules it would be appreciated. No social visits or on looking allowed. Genuine vendors only. No partners and no children to attend.
Attendance at sales MUST be restricted only to those conducting business.
Only one Buyer per business may attend. No partners, children or others. Buyers must wear a mask at all times and maintain a 1m gap at all times. Buyers must sanitise on entry, re-sanitise through their stay and on departure. Buyers where possible should "double up" and buy for multiple clients. Any Buyer who does not actually secure a purchase must register with the market office after the sale.
Hauliers must ensure their name and contact details are recorded on the entry for the stock they are delivering. Hauliers must sanitise their hands before getting out of their lorry and must wear a mask when in the market.
Cull ewes & goats continue to be on Friday afternoons along with the store lambs to allow greater social distancing of Buyers at both the Friday and Saturday sales.
