For disability week we are holding a Christmas fayre on 27th November at acomb parish hall 10am it is free entry and stalls will include: Wax melts, refreshments, makaton choir, tombola, raffle, pebble art, cake stalls and many more!
This year many of us are thinking about how we can have a more sustainable, environmentally-friendly, Christmas. One option is to buy handmade, locally sourced gifts – and the easiest way to do this is by attending one of Folksy’s regional online Christmas craft markets. Visitors to the online markets will be able to browse and buy original items from stallholders, watch craft demonstrations and see interviews with the makers. The five online markets are taking place over the weekend of 27-28 November 2021 and can be accessed from https://folksy.com/christmas-markets
