A MONTHLY Sunday market and trading day in a Staffordshire Moorlands town is going from strength to strength.

The award-winning Sunday Supplement took place in Leek at the weekend and saw hundreds of shoppers converge on the market town.

Co-organiser of The Sunday Supplement, Marc Brian of Totally Locally Leek, said: "This month's Sunday Supplement was a great day despite the early rain.

"It could have been a lot worse though looking at the weather forecast.

"Although a number of the regular stall holders were off on their holidays it gave a chance for some of the people on the waiting list to have a stall, so we still had 35 stall holders and by all accounts it was a great day again.

"Of course it wouldn't be the same without everyone who comes along on the day and we would like to thank everyone who has shown their support to the Sunday Supplement over the past 12 months."

Sunday saw a lot going on in Leek, with the addition of a Family Fun Dog Show at The Foxlowe Arts Centre. Marc added: "It was really nice to see the first Churnet Valley Training and Dougal's Den organised dog show at the Foxlowe Arts Centre and Getliffe's Yard opened with sculpture demonstrations, live music and their shops and cafes open as well.

"With the expansion into Derby Street we are slowly moving toward our aim of a market throughout the town including Sparrow Park which we would love to achieve towards the end of the year with the aim of around 60 stalls in total for the market part of The Sunday Supplement."
