Christmas Shopping Sunday – 2nd December 2012

Tarts and Crafts Poster

Both Shrewsbury House and Woodlands Farm have their Christmas Fairs on Sunday 2nd December, and as they are only about 10 minutes walk apart it’s easily possible to visit both to enjoy the festive atmosphere and do some Christmas shopping.

Shrewsbury House is running its successful Tarts & Crafts event for the third time. Previous Tarts & Crafts have been very popular, with a wide range of  stalls. As they say on their web site:

Sunday 2 December 11am to 4pm:

Our third Tarts and Crafts event is taking place on 2nd December with stalls selling homemade cookies, chocolates, cakes, jams & chutneys. In addition hand made craftwork, decorations, photographs, ceramics, jewellery, textiles, gifts and cards. Ideal for Christmas presents. Come along and have fun. Face painting, live music, mulled wine and mince pies plus a raffle for great prizes. Free entry – all proceeds go to Shrewsbury House.

Tarts & Crafts will be opened by the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Greenwich at 10.50am.

Woodlands Farm Christmas Fair has become a regular fixture in the Shooters Hill calendar. All the usual attractions will be there – Father Chistmas’ Grotto, stalls selling craft, food and gifts, pony rides with Bob the pony and  entertainment from the CCRA Singing Group.  As the farm say on their web site:

All are welcome at the Woodlands Farm Trust Christmas Fair. Sip mulled wine whilst browsing stalls of local produce and crafts for early Christmas present ideas, or relax in our café while the kids enjoy crafts and games. A great festive day out for all the family. Entry is free, but donations are welcome – all money raised helps us to care for our animals.

Last year Shrewsbury House and Woodlands Farm held  their Christmas Fairs on the same day, and both were very well attended – lots of people taking the opportunity to go along to both events. Hopefully  this year will be as successful in raising money for these two local, volunteer-run  groups.
