We will be setting up a small marquee just outside our office. We have a number of events running throughout the day with a ‘Name the Judge’ competition for children with the chance of winning our giant teddy bear ‘Judge’.
There will also be the opportunity for visitors to the office to win a case of Laithwaite’s wine by correctly identifying ten French and ten English Cathedrals on display in our reception area.
Our board room will be turned into a French ‘Café’ with drinks available for our clients and visitors. Having moved to our new office at the beginning of 2020, we are delighted to finally have the opportunity to use our building for a social/community event such as this.
Le Marché is Heathfield’s famous Anglo-French market which has run for the past 24 years and is the longest running market of its type in the South East. During the early 1990s, Heathfield’s economy was struggling and by late 1996 there was a desperate search for new ideas to breathe life into the town.
Then in 1997 the idea of an Anglo-French market was conceived and a volunteer committee of local traders worked together to set up Le Marché. French traders from Forges-les-Eaux were invited to the town, as Forges is in an area called Le Pays de Bray with which Wealden is linked. The market was so successful that it became one of Heathfield’s major attractions each year.
