The popular Mold Market has been cancelled today following recent heavy snowfall and freezing overnight temperatures.

The market, held every Saturday and Wednesday, is the biggest market in North Wales, with over 70 stalls in the High Street and through to Daniel Owen Square.

Mold, like the rest of Flintshire, experienced significant snowfall on Friday, which had largely thawed by the afternoon.

However, icy patches remained on many of the pavements and walkways, causing concern for the safety of market vendors and visitors.

A yellow weather alert for ice has been in place overnight and comes to an end at 10am on Saturday.

With the freezing temperatures overnight,  Flintshire Council has taken the decision to cancel Saturday’s market.

Local photographer Nik Mesney captured some stunning images of Mold town centre on Friday morning.

Flintshire Council has also cancelled the Love Lane Car Boot Sale on Sunday.

The Buckley Town Centre Place Making Consultation event, due to take place at the Refurbs Café in Buckley today, has been postponed.

Waste collections

All waste and recycling collections scheduled for Saturday, 11th March 2023, have been cancelled due to safety concerns. This includes the rescheduled collections from Friday.

As a result of the suspension, black bin collections that were suspended on Friday will now be collected on Monday.

Black bin collections that are scheduled for Saturday, 11th March 2023, will now be collected on Tuesday, 14th March 2023.

Food waste and recycling collections that were suspended on Friday, 10th March 2023, and Saturday, 11th March 2023, will be collected on the next scheduled collection day.

Garden waste collections are likely to remain suspended on Monday, 13th March 2023, and Tuesday, 14th March 2023, to enable recollections of black bins for those properties affected on Friday, 10th March 2023, and Saturday, 11th March 2023.

Flintshire Council said waste collection crews have been deployed “to assist with gritting and snow clearing operations, in order to ensure that essential services continue to function smoothly.”
