Shillingstone Christmas Fayre
~ Saturday 6th December ~
I am already very excited about this event and have been ensuring that all of my friends and family have written it firmly into their diaries! The Fayre seems to have grown into something that promises to be very special, with a huge range of local suppliers available to help you finish off (or in my case, get started) with your Christmas list.
Over the past few years, the lovely people of Shillingstone have run a Christmas bazaar with the aim of raising money for their church and funding their valuable outreach programmes. However, they had ambitions to run something even better and even more special for local people and visitors alike. At the last count the Fayre planned to host over 35 stalls selling local food, drink and crafts by some very well-known names. These include Angel Organics free-range turkeys, hot-roasted chestnuts from Living The Cream, Sam’s Fudge, home-made delights from The Wobbly Cottage, Emsie Sharp’s stunning glass designs and Ed Duckworth’s incredible pottery. You will also be able to buy beautiful handmade wreaths to take home and get your house ready for the party season.
All of this loveliness will be wrapped up in some serious Christmassy atmosphere, for both adults and children. Visitors will be greeted with home-made, hot mince pies and mulled wine. Santa has promised to visit and meet the children, giving them the opportunity to buy some reindeer food. He may even bring along his trusty, antlered friends!
The Fayre runs from 11am – 5pm and more information can be found on the website, here. I can’t wait to see you there! I’m sure you will be able to spot me buying some reindeer dust or making a beeline for the raffle (there are some truly exciting prizes – and I’ve got my eye on spending a day with alpacas)!!
Have a great weekend!
