Malcolm                                                                    Hutchinson, Blyth’s
town centre manager, said: “It caters for a different clientele.

“There were people there who had never been to Blyth before.

“There is the pull of the car boot sales.

“We are trying to promote it not as a normal market. This is a separate animal.

“The main idea is to bring more people into the town centre from afar, and it certainly
seems to have done that.

“One of the business people said they had never seen the town centre looking so busy for
years.”

Blyth’s other markets will take place as usual every Monday, Friday and Saturday.
