Countdown to Christmas

Countdown to Christmas

Thank you to everyone who came along to our Silsoe Christmas Craft Fair on Sunday! I managed to buy a few more Christmas presents, although, if I’m honest, I bought more for me!

We’re now on the countdown to our final craft fair for 2023, and on this one we’re supporting Robert Bloomfield Academy in Shefford. It’s their event, and they will have 4 fundraising stalls, plus refreshments, a BBQ and an amazing raffle! Which leaves us managing 36 amazing stalls filled with gifts and treats for adults and children!

Doors to Robert Bloomfield Academy and the Shefford Christmas Craft Fair will open at 10am on Saturday December 2nd and we close at 2pm. Entry is £1 for adults, with under 18’s free. All entry fees will go to the school.

Listen out for musical performances by the children!

We’re fully booked for this event, but still taking applications in case of cancellation.

The following weekend it’s our final Shefford Community Market for 2023. You’ll find us outside Jardine’s Chemist, inside St Michael’s Church, and around Pamoli Square which is next to Morrisons and the children’s play park from 9am to 1pm on December 9th.

We still have some space available at this market, so if you have a gazebo and you’re not booked elsewhere, The cost for space is just £15 or if you’re a charity there’s no charge.

Also, whilst I have your attention, it’s the Shefford Christmas Lights switch on this Saturday November 25th. My only involvement with them is my annual garage sale trail where I donate all stall fees, however this year I know they are going even bigger and will have stalls lining the High St. It’s a very popular event in Shefford, with a big turnout, so if you’re a stallholder and you’re free that afternoon, I know they’re still taking bookings.
