We have received the sad news that our former market organsier Jo Burrill died last weekend after a long illness.
As well as organising the market, Jo made bread for the market from her home in Hexham and towards the end of 2019 Jo did a few markets as a guest producer selling her pottery. In addition Jo was a very loyal customer of the market always arriving on her bike to buy her supplies. We extend our sincere condolences to Tristan, her partner.
To mark her death and as a posthumous ‘thank you’ we will be running a farmers’ market raffle at the market tomorrow, 10 July 2021, with the proceeds going to a cancer charity, or a charity of Tristan’s choice.
Post market update: We spoke to Tristan and he suggested Tynedale Hospice as the charity to support. We’re pleased to say our raffled raised £162 which has now been transferred to the charity. Thanks go to the people who bought tickets and all producers who supported the raffle with produse.
