The next waste free market in Keswick will be held at the town's cricket pavilion.

The switch is being made as the Methodist Hall on Southey Street that usually hosts the monthly event is being used as part of the Christian Convention ongoing in the town.

At next Sunday's plastic-free market, Millican, the eco-friendly bag makers who sponsor the event, are introducing a new initiative called Re:Home Your Bag.

Millican invite anyone to give up their old, worn rucksacks and bags and they promise to repair and renew and then pass on to charitable organisations who need them and can use them.

Booths supermarket has offered to recycle unwanted plastic bags. Shoppers can bring their old plastic bags to fill two Booths shopping trolleys. At the end of the market Booths will take away and recycle.

Booths will also be donating prizes of re-useable coffee cups and fabric shopping bags and coconuts as prizes for the coconut shy at the market.

There will be a plastic bottle sculpture, a stall showcasing six practical things to make from a plastic bottle and a terracycle collection point for market visitors as well as access to the cricket club bar and barbecue throughout the day.

The club will be staging women's cricket matches in the morning, as part of the new women's softball league, starting at 11 am between Keswick, Whitehaven, Ghyll Foot and Cockermouth.
