Have restrictions lifted to allow all traders at Jarrow Market

This petition had 266 supporters

During October of 2016 Viking Stalls (Jarrow Market) began, on a bi-weekly basis. Some 10,000 people attended, with over 50 stalls set up throughout the Viking Centre. Businesses boomed as did smaller local businesses trading here. All was going great until the end of the 2 month trial - which ended just before Christmas 2016. Having been such a huge success this looked like it was going to last and have a long and prosperous lifespan. Until....restrictions were enforced. Whether this was South Tyneside Council or whether this was the Viking Centre Management this still reminds unclear. Answers would of been nice but never came. Then main organiser left. The Viking Centre took over the market and contracted it to new organisers, which is now a craft only market, with very few stalls, with new organisers and very little advertising/networking. Jarrow is quiet again. Please remove these restrictions and allow original traders back to create this great market once more. 

As an original trader, this market was a great source of income for my business and livelihood, as well as many others, and not being able to return has damaged not only the banned but Jarrow's economy as a whole. Please help and sign this petition
