The man who has been a familiar face promoting Fenland’s markets is expected to lose his job as a result of the latest round of redundancies by the district council.
Mike Chapman, markets and events manager, is thought to have been a casualty of the council’s decision to review three separate departments to save costs.
Mr Chapman, currently involved in staging the annual St George’s Day market in March, has emailed local groups to tell them of forthcoming events.
“But this might be the last time I can inform you of these events as I may well be redundant in about eight weeks,” he told one group.
A confidential report on the latest round of proposed redundancies at Fenland Council was considered by its staff committee last month.
