Well, the day finally arrived, Saturday the 8th September 2012.

This was the main Celebratory day to mark the 750th Anniversary of Wigton's

Market Charter.

It started very cloudy but got better as the day progressed, by the time the

Civic service had finished at St Mary’s Church the Sun was shining.

 

After the Civic Service, there was a re-enactment of the handing over of the

Market Charter to Wigton.

 

After the re-enactment, Lord Bragg of Wigton unveiled the New Commemorative Market Cross that

was started by Prince Charles way back on a bitterly cold day on the 3rd of April 2012, then

crafted to it's completion by Charlie Miles.

 

As can be seen in the Photographs, the event was very well attended, there was defiantly

a very nice atmosphere with smiling faces everywhere.

 

Well done Wigton!!
