Glossop markets closed until further notice

Glossop indoor and outdoor markets are now closed until further notice, while work to move the market to temporary accommodation will also be suspended.

High Peak Borough Council confirmed the news on Tuesday afternoon (March 24). 

It follows the Prime Minister Boris Johnson's announcement on Monday evening of major restrictions to order people to stay at home and limit social interactions, in order to stem the spread of coronavirus. 

The borough council say the temporary closure of the markets and suspension of temporary accommodation will 'remain under constant review'. 

It said in a brief statement: "These measures will remain under constant review, as we respond to the developing situation and we hope to be operational again as soon as it is safe to do so. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and your support is greatly appreciated." 

The borough council also announce that all playgrounds are now shut until further notice, in response to the latest government guidance to ensure that members of the public are keeping a responsible distance from others. It says playgrounds will re-open when restrictions are lifted.

It comes after the borough council closed all public toilets and customer service desks at its buildings yesterday (Monday) due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

High Peak Borough Council has also created a Coronavirus information hub on their website at highpeak.gov.uk/Coronavirus where it will be posting the latest updates on help, support and changes to services from the council.
