We are pleased to announce that L’Arche London UK – West Norwood Shop is relaunching tomorrow
Thursday 27th September
Please come and visit for raffle tickets, craft makes by L’Arche members (candles, frames, greeting cards and lots more) alongside their Garden items too.
Rock Paper Scissors London will also be there with a few of our makes – including
Bunting & Pops (Cushions (Moomins!), baby items in cool fabrics)
Laura with her cool vintage jewellery (her stone work is too heavy to bring apparently!)
Bill Hull with Photographic Framed work & greeting cards of the local area (very popular)
Agnes with her Handmade Jewellery and retro/vintage games and accessories
RunnyCustardMakes with her handmade modern cloth dolls and some photographic prints (unframed)
L’Arche would love to know if you are coming so they make sure they have lots of drinks, nibbles and (homemade!) cake … vital that last one.
upcoming events which will be added to the calendar will be Candle Making, Autumn and Christmas Fayre.
Also news on the opening hours of the shop itself
See you there.

L’Arche Garden Christmas Fayre with RPS & WN Feast
The countdown to our Christmas Fayre on Sunday 4th December 10–4pm at l’Arche Garden, has already started over on our Facebook page – the first 5 contestants to have collected all coupons will win a prize.
Want 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.
West Norwood Feast are also selling their new 2017 Calendar so keep an eye out for that Feast fans!
Also The Stitch will have their fundraising stall at the main Feast area in the Church Grounds so check out those handmade goodies – great for stocking fillers too and Christmas decorations all made to help keep the community group free for everyone 🙂
As well as the huge blanket that is being made with WN Feast to help support the South London Refugee Association.
Have a look at The Stitch blog posts which have lovely photos too.
