RUBBISH: It is the responsibility of all stallholders to make sure that their site is left clean & tidy. Bins that are provided are for the public to use, NOT stallholders, please take your rubbish away with you. This has been an ongoing problem and a great deal of rubbish has to be collected after the market. The council charges the Bushmarket committee and the costs will be passed on. Once again the bins provided are for PUBLIC USE only, not stallholders.
TELEPHONE: The Bushmarket phone is available between the hours of 8.00 am & 8.30 pm, except for Thursday, Public Holidays or Total Fire Ban Days. When leaving a message speak the number slowly and clearly so your call can AND will be returned.
DOGS: The committee cannot stress enough that dogs are not permitted at the market. On the spot fines can be issued by the by-laws officers. Stall holders can advise the public of this if a dog is seen.
TOILETS: Toilets for stall holders are situated at the sports complex, at the playground, the round-about the Church of England and the Uniting Church. Thank you to them.
CLOSING DATES : The closing date on applications is for administration purposes. Do not leave it to the last minute to try to get in. The cup weekend market had a waiting list of 25, so the early bird catches the worm.
RULES & REGULATIONS : Please follow this link to keep up to date with any changes which may occur from time to time. Rules & Guidelines.
The committee hope that a good days trading is had by all and if you are staying we hope you enjoy all that Mansfield has to offer and have a safe trip home. We thank you for your support throughout 2015 and look forward to seeing you in 2016.
