St Helen’s Christmas Market and Trinity Christmas Fair (and a Robin)

November 26, 2017

I enjoyed going to Jumble Sales as a youngster in the village where I lived from the age of 10, and still have some of the prize finds from back then.

On Saturday, St Helen’s Church and Trinity Church both had their Christmas sales – events not unlike those jumble sales.
Church Christmas Fairs
At St Helen’s Church there were stalls in the south aisle – with a long table of books down the centre; a jewellery stall under St Helen’s Window; new painting by local artists either side; and refreshments along most of the south wall.

Bric-a-brac and crafts were on sale opposite the refreshments, and then a raffle and children’s toys.

At Trinity, the Christmas Fair was in the Conduit Centre – the church hall that once served as as school room, but now is more of a Community Hall. There was a rectangle of tables at the centre with people selling cakes, pickles and jams, jewellery, bric-a-brac, and raffle tickets.

Other stalls were round the outside, including a Traidcraft stall, books and toys and crafts; and fund raising games run by uniformed organisations.

As at St Helen’s Church, there was an area for people to sit with refreshments and enjoy each others company.

I did get some good finds, but best of all, coming out of St Helen’s Church, I got a nice picture of a Robin on the churchyard wall.
