A group of makers who have featured in a BBC show are coming to Rawtenstall Market.

The six woodworkers who have worked on Jay’s Yorkshire Workshop on BBC2 for the past four weeks will be heading to the market on October 2 for a reunion and to meet the public.

One of the makers, Anthony Gotts, 38, was born and grew up in Rossendale and has recently relocated to Golcar in Huddersfield, however he still comes to the Rawtenstall every Thursday and Saturday to run his stall.

He runs his woodwork company, Handmade in Rossendale, on Rawtenstall market selling chopping boards, signs, benches, tables and more.

Antony, who is known on the show as Ant, said: “It’s great they will be there.

“I invited everybody and I was only expecting one or two of them to come down so to get all of them is great.

“We haven’t met up since the show so it will be a great reunion for is.”

Jabbar, Kate, Graham, Becky and Les will be selling their handmade wares on a joint stall while Anthony will be running his own stall, however he hopes to be able to spend some time with his old team.

Anthony added: “My customers absolutely love coming in and chatting to me about the show.

“All day on Thursday and Saturday people ask me about the show so I am looking forward to everyone coming to the market.

“It’s the one and only time we are all going to be in the same place at the same time.”

The show has two episodes left and has seen the makers work alongside industry experts to help build items of furniture for people who have been nominated for doing something outstanding in their communities.
