A shopkeeper hopes a popular small craft market will become a monthly event.

Jonathan Chase, owner of La Maison, in Sandpit Lane, Braintree, organised the fourth market today.

Twelve stalls were set up in Sandpit Lane and George Yard shopping centre, with the support of centre manager Brenda Baker and the Braintree Town Team.

Mr Chase said: “Some of the traders have done Spitalfields and Portabello Road markets.

“98 per cent of them are local from the Braintree district.”

George Yard also organised for the Easter Bunny to give out sweets to shoppers and local Girl Guides held a raffle.

Anyone interested in having a stall at the craft market can call Mr Chase on 01376 528565.
