Organisers, traders, supporters and councillors gather for anniversary event

Volunteers, team members, traders, supporters and councillors met at Room2 Hometel on Windmill Road to celebrate the third birthday of the first successful market in Chiswick.

Liana from Caketivate, who has a stall selling realistic-looking flower muffins at the market, made a gorgeous birthday cake, showing the Flower Market’s latest poster, by celebrated artist Anita Klein.

The team says it is working on future plans, including a lovely Christmas market, and it is leading on proposals to redesign Old Market Place, to coincide with the development of the old police station site.
