Farmers Market on Orange Square making it impossible to leave Coleshill Flats and keep socially distanced from people queueing for the market outside the entrance to the flats.

As per the summery, Although these are extraordinary times, it is obvious that the market marshals should be making sure that the entrances to the residential blocks are kept clear. Instead I have to run the gauntlet, holding breath, just to leave the building. I can not go left to the crossing nor right due to people queuing and the fact that I would not be able to socially distance I am also blocked from crossing across the road immediately outside the flats due to a market trader parking directly opposite the entrance. I suffer from chronic Asthma and I am terrified of getting sick because it is very likely it will kill me. This has been going on for 5 weeks now and I feel like a prisoner on Saturdays. I know other residents have complained in recent weeks but nothing has been done!!
