6_128x128Want to sell at L’Arche & RPS & WN Feast Christmas Fayre?

If you¬†would like¬†to participate in the Xmas Fayre on Sunday 4th December, I’d be grateful if you would please email me by 3.00pm on Wednesday 30th November.

Hire a table space (approx 3ft x 4ft) at our Xmas Fayre on Sunday 4th December at L’Arche’s Gothic Lodge, 21 Idmiston Road, West Norwood SE27 9HE. The cost will be ¬£10 – payable on Sunday 4th December, which goes to L’Arche, who will be providing tables (indoors and outdoors) and some weather protection. If you would like to bring your own gazebo, please let us know.

Stallholders will need to set up on site at Gothic Lodge from 9.00-9.30am on Sunday 4th December and the Fayre will run alongside the Christmas Feast (on and around Norwood Road/Norwood High Street) from 10.00am to 4.00pm.

We do ask stallholders NOT to sell greetings cards (unless they feature prints of the maker’s own original artworks/photographs), candles or christmas wreaths, please, in order to avoid competing with those products that are handcrafted by the L’Arche charity community.

City & Country Farmers’ Markets – Oval

L‚ÄôArche and¬†Rock Paper Scissors will be at¬†the¬†City & Country Farmers’ Markets (CCFM)

at

St Mark’s Church, The Oval

Saturday 12 March

10.00am-3.00pm

 

It has a very social feel with friends meeting at our designated outdoor caf√© area to eat some of the delicious food on offer ‚Äď including Oriental Thai food and delicacies from Guadeloupe. If you fancy arts and crafts there are also stallholders selling items such as unique jewellery fashioned from bicycle chains.

The market has proved to be extremely popular not least with the farmers and other food producers who prefer it over other markets, but with shoppers who stagger home with bags full of shopping and come even when the weather is bad.
