Christmas Fair

Thank you to everyone for your support for the 2017 Christmas Fair. If you donated prizes for the tombola or came on the day your support is gratefully received. Also many thanks to the Community Shop for their continued support, and of course Santa who managed to find time to stop off in Collyweston and talk to lots of children.

We raised £248 towards hall funds. We need every penny towards the up-keep of the hall as it is increasingly hard to cover the day to day running costs of the hall. With this in mind we find we have had to increase our hire charges, the first time since 2013. The new price list is published here, and it comes into effect on 1st January 2018.

Stalls are now ready to book for just £10 at Collyweston’s favourite annual fundraiser. Please contact Shelagh on 01780 444607 as soon as you can.

This year’s Christmas Fair on Saturday 25th November is set to be the best one yet, with lots of super attractions to bring in the visitors and keep them entertained…

  • a visit by Santa in his sparkly Grotto
  • stalls offering locally made gifts, cards, decorations – things you won’t see anywhere else – so you can find those extra-special stocking-fillers
  • Collyweston village shop offering samples of its locally sourced produce
  • refreshments available so you can sit and relax while you peruse your purchases
  • Tombola stall – where it’s quite hard not to win something
  • raffle – with Santa presenting the prizes!

Admission is free and the doors open at 2pm. Remember to bring plenty of bags to take your winnings home in … ho! ho! ho!

The 2016 Christmas Fair was delightful (reports Sandra Johnson). Santa had 16 eager customers who were clearly thrilled to be able to chat to him and hint at what they would like. We thank him for taking time out of his very busy schedule to visit us. Thank you also to everyone who came along and enjoyed a thoroughly pleasant afternoon and also a huge thank you to the Village Hall committee for all their hard work in organising it. Particularly Shelagh who, despite breaking her arm, came along and helped out on the day.
