Dog’s breakfast law stops wedding fayre
Thursday 14th February 2013, 12:00PM GMT.
SUNDAY trading laws have scuppered a popular wedding fayre just days before it was due to take place.
The event was meant to go ahead on Sunday at St James but event organiser Guernsey Weddings has been told that six out of its 34 exhibitors needed a Sunday trading licence but did not have one.
And in a bid to be fair to all, the owner of the company, Julie Jones, has decided to cancel.
It has directly cost her approximately £1,000 due to all the advertising, design work and preparations made. The loss in terms of revenue and returned stallholder deposits is considerably more.
St Peter Port constable Barry Cash said they had done all they could to try to get the organisers a licence but it was not possible.
