    Sad face also. My Mother's visiting this weekend and I'd planned to take her to this. Now got to think of something else to amuse her. I'm assuming Trentham will be closed as well if the weather is bad :(

    Second sad face - I've plans for the November date so can't make that either :(

    I'm trying to think an alternative for you to go to. The National Trust properties are still open (Attingham near Shrewsbury is very good). Lichfield as you may well know is good. Cosford Air Museum is good on a wet day (good any day infact!)

    Monthly craft market in Stone, Saturday 21 Oct.
    The abandoned Stafford makers market would have been in direct competition with it.

    Thanks for the recommendations. I think we'll do Lichfield if Trentham is closed. I'd really like to do Cosford but don't think it's my Mother's thing. I have to go through Shrewsbury to get to my parents, so shall save Attingham for a stop off en-route.

    They aren't getting any luck with weather at all:

    (Just posted 16/3/2018)

    STAFFORD MAKERS MARKET CANCELLED [​IMG]

    With huge regret we have made the decision to cancel Saturdays Stafford Makers Market due to the high forecasted wind speeds.

    The wind levels predicted by met office are constant wind speeds of 22-23 mph with gusts of 42-43 mph from 12 noon. Unfortunately these are not acceptable levels to operate safely.

    We do apologise for any inconvenience caused, it is not a decision we have made lightly.

    We look forward to seeing you all again next month.....

    Get it in the diary!.... Saturday April 21st
