Alford is a town in Lincolnshire, England. Alford’s Craft Market has taken place every August bank holiday since the 1970s. A market is held in the grounds of the manor house, and includes stalls selling locally-crafted products with, usually, musical entertainment in a marquee. A smaller weekly market is held in the Corn Exchange every Tuesday and Friday.
As well as this European markets have been held annually at Easter and on holidays since Christmas 2005, with traders from the near continent concentrating on selling food. Fun, games and frivolity are to be had and enjoyed at such an event, but unfortunately such festivities often experience a fair share of accidents and injuries too. There is nothing worse than an injury spoiling your fun at such an event, and this is made even worse when that accident occurred through no fault of your own.
At Accident Advice Helpline we know that sometimes an accident just isn’t your fault, and it is unfair that you should have to suffer because of it. If safety measures and general upkeep is not maintained in Alford, you may find that the local council is responsible for your injury and you could be eligible for compensation with help from personal injury solicitors in Alford.
