Olympic fever results in Chester market going for Gold

18 July 2012

Olympic fever is underway at Chester Market where during the Games, each market stall is adopting a country and will be celebrating as they win medals.

A large chart in the market will display a list of the medals won by each country/stall as they are won during the competition. To add to the fun the market is running a competition to predict how many medals Team GB will win. Entry forms will be available from Chester market.

The Market is also running a children’s Olympic themed painting competition. Entries will be displayed in the Market during the Olympics. There are three age categories; under 5, under 8 and under 12 with Gold, Silver and Bronze gift voucher prizes to be won.

Said Chester City Councillor Samantha Dixon: “The Market has a festival feeling with the stalls looking even more colourful than normal. I would like to congratulate the stall holders and encourage everybody to visit the Market to not only do their shopping but to also join in with the Olympics celebrations.”

Chester Market is open Monday to Saturday from 8am to 5pm (except Bank Holidays).
