GO TRADE is an ambitious English-French project to revitalise markets in Southern England and Northern France.

The project aims to help market traders build sustainable businesses and increase visitors to local English and French heritage market towns.

Gravesham Borough Council has been awarded a €471,000 share of a project worth approximately €5.6 million euros awarded in July 2017 for a 4 year period to 2020.

Support includes the:

  • Creation of business support and training modules, videos and digital content for existing and new market traders, and
  • Development of the tourism product, including historical research, setting of values, a calendar of themed markets and events as well as digital marketing tools.

The Go Trade project is being made possible via Interreg, the cross-border funding programme that champions co-operation between regions in the European Union.

The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) who are contributing €3.8 million ERDF with partners contributing €1.8 million in match funding.

Brexit negotiations will have no impact on this project.
