As part of the thrust to make Water Square in Falmouth, Trelawny a no-vending area, the town’s mayor has announced that the usual Grand Market will not be allowed in the Square this year.

The first phase of ridding the area of vendors is to begin on Wednesday.

Mayor of Falmouth, Colin Gager, says an area close to the transport centre will be prepared to accommodate the expected influx of vendors for grand market.

He says three streets just outside the Square are also being prepared to accommodate vendors.

He says fruit vendors will have one street designated for them and the other two streets will be used by people who now cook and serve meals within the square.

Mayor Gager says the Sanitary Convenience Building which now closes at 10 o’clock at night will now be opened all night.

He says Municipal Police will now work later at nights to help maintain order.
