Petition Closed

We - the Leyton traders - were mis-sold pitches, some at a cost of £27,000, after being told that crowds of up to 80,000 people would pass the ethnic food market set up for the Olympics.

Council documents actually advise people to avoid the area - for many of us days have passed with no customers at all. Those that do pass from the Olympic Village say that no one even knows we're here.

Some of us took out huge loans, even re-mortgaged our houses, and now we're desperate. The Council and North London Business, who sold the pitches, must speak to us! Many of us will not survive such huge losses.

Save the market traders

We - the Leyton traders - were mis-sold pitches, some at a cost of £27,000, after being told that crowds of up to 80,000 people would pass the ethnic food market set up for the Olympics.

Council documents actually advise people to avoid the area - for many of us days have passed with no customers at all. Those that do pass from the Plymic Village say that no one even knows we're here.

Some of us took out huge loans, even re-mortgaged our houses, and now we're desperate. The Council and North London Business, who sold the pitches, must speak to us! Many of us will not survive such huge losses.
