NOW before you start, none of the parties were saying that the idea of a Christmas market in Harlow is a bad thing.

The ruling Labour group had proposed that there should be a number of market stalls up on the Broad Walk during this Christmas period.

But at last weeks Cabinet meeting, The Harlow Conservatives had asked why their had not been any consultation on the issue.

Cllr Simon Carter said: “There had not been stalls there in sixty years, so we felt there should have been some in put. For example, will there be cables running across the walkways. Has their been a risk assessment.”

This exasperated Labour deputy leader, cllr Tony Durcan. He said: “This is a trial. We will see how it goes.

“I hope it goes well and brings in trade for Harlow. If it become a permanent fixture then we would take it through the appropriate channel. We are just trying to do something good for the town”.

The item was recommended unanimously by Labour.
