I have been told by a Market trader that Ms Reagon has definitely left the Market. I was also advised that Mr Wilkinson had also gone, however, on checking the website he is still there as chairman. Does anyone know any more? I was also told that the new man in charge is so far pleasant, actually spends time in the Market getting to know the traders, and it's like a weight has lifted of of the Market.
I really hope this is true. Far to late to help the traditional wholesalers, but will the bermondsey seven be invited back?
With Wilkinson still in charge, the touchy-feely nature of the new director smacks of a Wilkinson decreed charm offensive in the hope that traders forget the fact that he screwed up big time and then laid all of the blame at Reagon's feet. Apparently, another management chap is still there still on the website), who has been the source of much consternation amongst the traders. The (long overdue) departure of Reagon should just be the beginning of a much needed clearout, including some of the longer serving trustees.
