Christmas Market 2019 

We are now beginning to think about our biannual Christmas Market.

The date is set for the FRIDAY 15TH NOVEMBER AT 17.00pm.

Please put the date in your diary. 

If there is anyone who would like to help in any way, however small, please let me know. My email is and my telephone is 01304 239975. We will be having a meeting in September to discuss the arrangements. I will let you know the date, either personally, if you contact me before, or on the church news-sheet.  

We hope to make it as successful as the one we had in November 2017 and to make it very enjoyable evening for everyone who takes part or who comes along to support us.
