Contractors are hard at work assembling over 170 chalets for this year’s Bath Christmas Market.
This colourful annual event – which lines the streets surrounding Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths – opens on Thursday, November 24th and runs through to Sunday, December 11th.
Opening times are 10 to 7 Monday to Wednesday, 10 to 8.30 Thursday to Saturday and 10 to 6 on Sundays.
This year they are having to re-arrange a couple of pitches near the shop entrance to Bath Abbey as hoarding has been erected for the start of excavation work as park of the multi-million pound Footprint Project.
This will restore the Abbey floor, introduce a heating system using Bath’s thermal waters as a source of energy and install educational facilities, meeting rooms, rehearsal spaces, toilets and much needed kitchens.
Chalets normally at this point near the Abbey are taking up space outside the church office in Kingston buildings.
Meanwhile it is good to see B&NES replacing the bike hoops outside the Guildhall after their removal to make way for the annual Remembrance Day parade march by.
Shame the hoops are being returned with the notices of their removal still attached. A bike lock cable l mention to Council Connect months ago was also still attached when the hoops went back.
Some joined up communication needed here l think?
