A FRENCH Market held on the Common proved to be a tremendous success and helped to boost trade in the town, according to Saffron Walden's town clerk.

The market was held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and, apart from the heavy rain on the first day, was a big hit.

Tow clerk Malcolm White said: "The traders were delighted by the amount of business there was, even though it had rained heavily on the first day of the market.

"It certainly boosted the trade and the number of people in the town. The market offered something totally different from the normal.
