Llanidloes Charter Market will not go ahead for two weeks due to a national lockdown.

The Welsh Government’s announced on Monday that the “fire-break”, from 6pm on Friday will help regain control of coronavirus.

Graham Davies, market manager, said: “I would like to say a massive thank you to all; market traders, charities, locals, visitors and holiday makers. Since the reopening of the market back in July, Llanidloes Charter Market has become a popular and returned with vengeance, with Great Oak Street being blessed with double figures of different variety of stalls the last couple weeks.

“The atmosphere on market days have been immense and buzzing the last few months.”

Organisers of the World Textiles Day Wales event in Llanidloes have also cancelled the event due to the second national lockdown.

The popular event was planned to take place at the Minerva Arts Centre on Saturday, October 24.

Severn Hospice shops in Llanidloes, Machynlleth, Newtown and Welshpool have also closed.
