THE sound of bagpipes welcomed in the first shoppers of the new Dovercourt Indoor Market.

Set up by Michelle Oppezzo-Scott, who runs a craft stall called MOS Creative at the Enterprise Centre in Parkeston, the market is being held every other Friday in Kingsway Hall to complement the market that takes place on the High Street the same day.

The new venture is hoped to bring a boost to the town centre as well as give acoustic musicians a place to perform and collect donations.
