Jason Cooper is excited to be a new addition to the market. He said: “I’m really looking forward to it because of the newly-built market. I can see it’s got so much great potential and I wanted to be part of that. For me it’s all about a journey – I’m not looking at short-term I’m in this for the long-term and what a great setting I’ve got for it – looking out at the River Thames.”

Market manager, Jackie Bowles added: “We’re really excited about Jason joining us – in fact this addition to our wonderful market couldn’t be better.
