Temporary home for Guildford mart

AFTER the closure of Guildfords livestock market this week a new company has been formed offering marketing facilities 45 miles away.

Supporters have teamed up with Lambert & Foster at Maidstone to offer a joint fat stock trade on Mondays and a separate store trade on Thursdays under the newly formed Guildford Livestock Market Ltd.

A poll of producers suggest 350 are willing to support the scheme until a new site at Guildford is found, into which each will put 1000 towards building costs.
