One Of Our Own


This week we have said a sad goodbye to Alan.
He has been a trader with us on Ford Market for over 30 years selling his plants and shrubs and also at Chichester Market on a Wednesday and Saturday. A popular man with both his fellow traders and customers alike, he always had a kind word and a smile for everyone, as well as benefitting us all with great advice about the right and wrong ways of planting in the garden or a story about life in general.

He was a true gent and will be sorely missed by us all on a Sunday morning.

His sons James and Andy are continuing with the running of the stall with the rest of the family at all of the Markets and will no doubt keep up the great level of ‘service with a smile’, which has become the long-time trademark of their Dad.


Rest in Peace.
